Team San Jose

One-stop service in Silicon Valley

Instead of handing off planners to other organizations once their meeting, convention, or event is booked — as many cities do — Team San Jose does it all. Housing and event services, customized food-and-beverage menus, permits, marketing support, and technical know-how for special events — name it and it's a safe bet Team San Jose can handle it. So it's no wonder that 98 percent of planners say they would return to San Jose in the future. Also unlike other DMOs, Team San Jose manages the destination's major meeting venues, ensuring quality control of a group's experience from beginning to end. In addition to managing the San Jose Convention Center, Team San Jose manages the San Jose Civic, Center for the Performing Arts, California Theatre, Montgomery Theater, Parkside Hall, and South Hall. And the bureau's close relationships with local hotels, arts groups, and labor groups mean planners will receive the best service and pricing possible.

Whether it's a small corporate or citywide group, Team San Jose makes navigating and booking the destination just as easy as booking a big-box hotel property. Couple that with the destination's walkable and exciting downtown, which eliminates the need for group transportation, and planners will find that working with Team San Jose saves them both time and resources, freeing up energy for making their event an unforgettable success.
