San Francisco Travel Invites Planners to “Pick Two”

Book Select Dates at Participating San Francisco Hotels and Receive Two Valuable Incentives


Jan. 9, 2017 – As if San Francisco’s iconic vistas, world class dining, vibrant arts and culture scene and history of attracting record-breaking attendance weren’t enough to tempt meeting planners, San Francisco Travel and 44 participating hotels are offering “Pick Two,” a promotion that offers valuable incentives to planners booking during select dates in 2017 and 2018.

The four incentives are significant:

  • One complimentary room for every 35 rooms consumed
  • 20% discount on audiovisual services 
  • Complimentary welcome reception with a minimum of 10 rooms per night
  • Free wi-fi service in guest rooms and 50% off in meeting rooms

“San Francisco has been booming and open dates can be hard to find.  For groups with a little flexibility in their dates, we have a lot to offer,” said San Francisco Travel President and CEO Joe D’Alessandro.  

“With Moscone North and South closed from April through September 2017 for a major expansion, ‘Pick Two’ helps planners find dates and save money on self-contained meetings in San Francisco that might otherwise be hard to find or unavailable.  The participating hotels are highly desirable and range from luxury to landmark,” he added.  

The list of participating hotels and qualifying dates are available at   Qualifying dates are subject to change.

To take advantage of the “Pick Two” promotion, planners can submit a Request for Proposal at or contact Chris Deschenes at [email protected] or 508-269-8555.

In 2017, San Francisco will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, a pivotal time in the city’s history and culture.  Meeting attendees can truly “feel the love” at special exhibitions, concerts and tours. Information about Summer of Love events and trip ideas are available at
