San Jose, California: A Desirable Bay Area Location For International Events
San Jose is an ideal international conference and event location because in addition to being located in the heart of Silicon Valley, global partners, clients and customers will enjoy close proximity to some of the West Coast’s most desirable destinations and attractions. Business professionals from both the IT sector and other fields will enjoy attending events in a city known for being the headquarters of some of the world’s most innovative companies, including Apple, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and more.
An international airport (and proximity to several others), easy access to public transportation, restaurants meeting the culinary desires of every palate, a wealth of famous sporting arenas – not to mention short travel times to some of California’s most famous geographic features – are all compelling reasons to choose San Jose as the stage for your next multinational event.
Plus, San Jose, as a leading multinational events destination, is in CCA’s backyard, so to speak, and our local know-how can make it easy for you and attendees to relax, knowing professional language services are available to meet all your linguistic needs.
Do you conduct business with any of these world-renowned innovators?
San Jose and the surrounding Silicon Valley is the home territory for companies that are household names across the globe – with IT and tech being the major industry players. In addition to the companies we mentioned above, colleagues and prospects will appreciate that your conference puts them in close touch with other businesses they’re interested in networking with, including:
- Survey Monkey
San Jose is also close to some of the nation’s fastest growing companies, as well as Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and other top academic institutions, giving business leaders an opportunity to meet with academic colleagues, visit an alma mater, or tour prospective universities for their children.
Multinational professionals enjoy doing business in cosmopolitan destinations
Worldly professionals enjoy traveling to other countries and cultures, but there is something to be said about the delight of finding oneself in a cosmopolitan city. In addition to experiencing different cultures, practicing English, and getting to visit some of the iconic sights they’ve only seen in movies or in print, your San Jose event provides attendees the opportunity to find a bit of their home country.
San Jose boasts the largest Vietnamese community in the US, as well as significant populations from the world over. Not only is San Jose a diverse community, with ample ethnic dining options to choose from, it’s only an hour drive from San Francisco, a city that is considered a gem all the world over. From either destination, your guests can hop on quick commuter flights to Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles or San Diego and visit more of the west coast’s gems – all of which provide that perfect blend of “foreign” and a “small taste of home” that make for a satisfying business trip and vacation opportunities.
Gorgeous geography leads to enticing itineraries attendees can’t resist
What’s more compelling than attending an international event or conference targeted to your professional niche? Attending one that includes an itinerary of social outings, tours and/or excursions in locations you’ve always wanted to visit.
With that in mind, your San Jose event offers attendees a chance to visit:
- The world’s tallest and largest trees via coastal and giant redwoods
- Places they’ve seen on TV and in movies – San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Carmel, Big Sur, etc.
- El Capitan, Half Dome, and all that Yosemite and other national and state parks have to offer
- Lake Tahoe for water skiing in the summer and snow skiing in the winter
- Some of the best vineyards and wineries in the world in Napa and Sonoma counties
- Restaurants run by world-famous chefs
- Any number of sporting events, beginning with the San Jose Sharks’ home arena
- Noteworthy rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and water sport destinations
Once you’ve learned more about the groups interests and bucket list, you’ll be able to create an off-site itinerary they can’t resist.
