BART Sustainable Convention Travel Program
Convention planners looking to further reduce the environmental impact of their event have a unique opportunity in the form of BART’s Sustainable Convention Travel Program.
The program takes advantage of The Moscone Center’s downtown location and the convenience of BART for travelers arriving at SFO. Meeting planners can place a custom hyperlink on their website that allows attendees to purchase a BART-SFO transfer ticket before they even board their plan. This allows travelers to avoid confusion and save money.
Additionally, the program saves 20 pounds of carbon dioxide per passenger round-trip.
After touching down at SFO and boarding BART, attendees will find themselves downtown in half an hour, close to their hotel and The Moscone Center itself.
Party Venues Outside Moscone
What better time to hold a company party than after a successful convention? And with numerous unique party and event spaces scattered throughout the city, San Francisco has businesses more than covered in this regard.
Sharing a single Union Square facade, August Hall and Fifth Arrow are perfect venues for themed corporate events. A historic live music hall sits atop an ultra-modern restaurant, cocktail bar, and bowling alley for maximum flexibility.
Hornblower Cruises provide a whole new perspective on the city skyline with their San Francisco Bay dining cruises. The company also opens up Hornblower Landing, a 120,000 square foot, 5,000-person venue perched on the San Francisco Bay at Pier 3, for large-scale events.
Located right on San Francisco’s northern waterfront, the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture makes its historic campus, with 100,000 square feet of prime, picturesque event space, available for rentals year-round.
