Member Events

San Francisco Travel invites our members to leverage our exclusive networking and educational opportunities throughout the year.

Our dedicated Events team helps produce these meetings to bring the mission of San Francisco Travel, expert insider knowledge, and connections within the tourism industry to our members.

Our Annual Meeting is the premier event celebrating the year in tourism. Elements of the Luncheon, along with others, support the San Francisco Foundation. Key educational events include our annual Marketing Conference in the spring, and the Visitor & Lodging Forecast Forum in the fall.

Throughout the year, our Events team also organizes sales missions and industry trade show participation to sell the San Francisco Bay Area as an ideal destination for meetings and visitors. We encourage our members to join us at many of these events; after all, who better to sell our lodging, attractions, and businesses than you? To see a calendar of such events, look for our Partner Event Opportunities in the Member Portal. Log into the portal from the Member Resources tab on our Members landing page, and once logged into your account, find the Partner Event Opportunities on the home page.

See you at an event soon!
