I have attended many conferences at the S.J. convention center and access is great if staying downtown, or taking the VTRA light rails, which stops in front. I look forward to events knowing there is easy access, and a well organization event in store.

We go every year to the San Jose Car show and some other technical trade shows. This place is easy to access, park and locate. It has some basic food/coffee options and its close to all of SJ downtown restaurants, hotels and shops.

Big, barn like place with icy cold aircon. It's hot outdoors but definitely bring something warm for sitting in conference sessions!
