Berkeley is an inspired setting for great meetings, events, and celebrations. A culinary and cultural hub, the city has meeting space and event venues ranging from grand ballrooms and conference-ready hotels, to dramatic theater spaces and fantastic restaurants with private banquet space.
There's also the Berkeley bonus. Not only is it just minutes from San Francisco but meetings, conferences and events gain focus and status from Berkeley's university-town climate of thought leadership. After all, this is the home of the UC Berkeley and the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement!
