Use walking boots

Three floors and two five halls of walking. Very convenient location next to BART. I would not take the car.

Excellent location for the InterSolar 2016 venue - near everything and an outstanding facility for so many exhibits and people

Excellent place to host or attend a trade show. Safe area, conveniently located within walking distance of Union Square, and large enough (with three buildings) to support massive volumes of people. Keep in mind, however, that Uber doesn’t always know where it is. When I traveled here from Pier 39, the driver took me about a mile away!

Conveniently located within walking distance to numerous hotels and restaurants. Very easy to find your way around. However, the lines to the ladies bathroom are ridiculous. They were definitely not equipped to handle a convention of 10,000 who are mostly women. Add some bathroom stalls!

Excellent facility to host conventions, as space is abundant, walking distance from most decent hotels. Good underground link between buildings, w/ plenty of restrooms available in both portions of center. Air conditioned without being overtly cold overall.

Attending Apple's WWDC 2016 I can only say that I am impressed with the well oiled machinery that took care of over 5000 attendees with ease. Some of venues were huge, but there was no problem with following the seminars due to the excellent sound and video facilities.

This convention center is spread over three buildings, two city blocks and separated by two streets. This strange design is highly unconventional and most inconvenient for the meeting attendees

Perfect venue for a tech conference. Plenty of bathrooms. There were about 5000 people total and I still felt that there was plenty of space.

Home to some of the most important conventions in the World: Apple's WWDC, Microsoft's Build and ORACLE. This convention center provides excellent location, and services in downtown San Francisco.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
