There will come a time (sooner the better!) when meetings and events will be conducted in person. When that electric feeling of group engagement and energy returns. When the chat box gives way to real conversations in the same room or restaurant.
We know, that's a lot to consider. To help you better prepare for that much-anticipated moment, Visit Berkeley has released two valuable planning tools, both available digitally at VisitBerkeley.com.
The Berkeley Meeting & Event Guide, completely revised for 2020/21, is the definitive field guide to planning a Berkeley event. It offers a highly detailed map of the city with informative pins for hotels, restaurants, and venue spaces, color photos of key properties, a regional map, and links to additional resources.
The 2020/21 Berkeley Visitors Guide is an expansive, 100-page resource that is so rich in information, photography, and fun features like "Local Libations," it will serve as a virtual fam until you're ready for an actual site visit.
And just for fun, we came up with a new guide, Explore Berkeley Outside, because we all need to get under the blue sky from time to time!
Getting back to business, Berkeley offers venues ranging from grand ballrooms and conference-ready hotels to dramatic theater spaces and hip restaurants with private banquet space. Discover over 40 event venues, 300+ restaurants, and 1,400 hotel guest rooms just 20 minutes from downtown S.F.
Floor plans, square feet and A/V support are essential elements, but they don't define a great meeting destination. Set on sparkling San Francisco Bay, Berkeley is a one-of-a-kind place for successful meetings and group events. A culinary and cultural hub, Berkeley's university-town setting complements a diverse and authentic vibe. We look forward to welcoming you back to Berkeley!
