San Jose McEnery Convention Center – Boasting Hundreds of Varied Events Every year

Overview of the Venue

Team San Jose manages the San Jose Convention Center along with hotels and other venues with the aim of delivering an exceptional visitor experience. In fact, the Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) program made San Jose the first Northern California destination to receive accreditation in 2010.

In the heart of the Downtown in San Jose, the San Jose McEnery Convention Center celebrates hundreds of varied events a year; the huge draw of Fanime, the Silicon Valley Auto Show, Silicon Valley Comic Con, annual tech conferences, and specialty events, and tradeshows, are some to name. Because of the all-year-round buzz, it’s on the priority list of the people who search for the things to do or places to visit in San Jose. The “Idea Tree” stands at the front of the center, which is the interactive installation for public art. A full-service UPS Store is facilitated to support the packing, notary and printing needs of the visitors. 

Besides, in its upper level; three event halls, two ballrooms and a spacious pre-function concourse with plenty of space for guests to get connected are provided. And, the lower level allows members to connect between meetings. Wherein, its renovated lobby lounge gives access to open space, natural California sunlight, and plenty of seating. Moreover, 35,000 sq. ft. of outdoor plaza is a favorite spot to refuel under the sun. Again, the pre-function space of 14,500 sq. ft serves great branding opportunities. In addition, the hub of reception space is furnished with well-lit foyer, floor-to-ceiling windows and terraced redwood benches for convenience as it connects the lobby and outdoor plaza to enjoy the networking and events.
