The perfect balance of beauty and business.

Known for incredible panoramic views of San Diego Bay and five-star service, the San Diego Convention Center is a meeting planner's dream. For starters, the building is in a vibrant downtown setting within a mile and a half of more than 11,000 first-class hotel rooms, including four headquarter hotels, and 10 minutes from the airport. Your attendees will be within easy walking distance of an array of restaurants, retail stores and world-class entertainment. Nearby is the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, the USS Midway Museum and Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. And when something is not close by, getting around town is easy with the San Diego Trolley, the city's light-rail public transit system that conveniently connects downtown to other parts of the city. And, of course, San Diego's great weather and upbeat, positive vibe can't be beat.
