The most charming of all US cities! West Coast, San Francisco boasts beautifully diverse architecture, elegant Victorian homes, dazzling modern skyscrapers and charmingly quaint neighbourhoods. Combine these with rolling hills, clanging cable cars, rumbling trams, sweeping bays and picturesque marinas overlooked by the majestic and iconic Golden Gate Bridge, and you have the truly unique and cosmopolitan enclave that is San Francisco, “The City on the Bay”.
Conventions and Meetings
San Francisco’s Moscone Centre, which has recently undergone a two year renovation programme and is located in the heart of the city, attracts major international conventions. Its first class facilities, combined with complementary infrastructure in close proximity, make it the perfect location for meetings and conventions.
Furthermore, the city also has an abundance of unique venues, both modern and traditional, along with diverse hotel meeting facilities, all of which enable San Francisco to cater to a wide variety of meetings and business events.
Instantly recognisable, San Francisco is a naturally appealing Incentive Destination.
Its climate varies: March, April and May are very pleasant, but, weather-wise, September, October and early November also compete to be the best months to visit. But it remains a year-round destination, whose wide range of hotels make it truly “a resort within a city”.
Not only does San Francisco have an internationally-acclaimed museums and arts “scene”, including opera and ballet, along with world-class shopping and dining, it is also a haven for outdoor activities. Located on the Bay, there is naturally a huge range of marine activities to enjoy: whale watching, deep sea fishing, cruising for relaxation or sailing regattas for teambuilding events. Land lovers can cycle over the Bay, across the Golden Gate Bridge to the beautiful marina of Sausalito, or explore the city’s picturesque streets and neighbourhoods, guided by GPS, in open top go carts, a fun alternative to the traditional sightseeing tour!
Napa & Sonoma Wineries
Enhance any incentive programme with a day excursion or stay a night or two in the wineries: either way, Napa and Sonoma are worthy inclusions on any incentive. Small family vineyards and spectacular rambling estates are ideal for fun tastings or prestigious food-and-wine pairing, for lunches or dinners, for educational visits or teambuilding events.
In short there is something to inspire every top achiever!
