Berkeley Sets Stage for Meetings by the Bay

By Sponsored Content, February 6, 2017

Featuring a dramatic location on sparkling San Francisco Bay, Berkeley is an inspiring destination for meetings, events, and celebrations. A culinary and cultural hub, socially and politically progressive, Berkeley sets the stage with meeting and event venues ranging from grand ballrooms and conference-ready hotels, to dramatic theater spaces and private dining rooms in fantastic restaurants.

There’s also the Berkeley bonus. Meetings and conferences gain focus and status from Berkeley’s university-town climate of thought leadership. After all, this is the home of the University of California and the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement. With exceptional service, a multitude of accommodation options and exciting after-agenda group activities, Berkeley has true event-appeal.

Berkeley meeting hotels include the Bancroft Hotel, the Berkeley City Club, DoubleTree by Hilton Berkeley Marina, Hotel Durant, Hotel Shattuck Plaza, La Quinta Inn & Suites, and Rose Garden Inn.

In addition to meeting hotels, Berkeley offers association meeting planners dramatic non-hotel venues. Local meeting and event locations include the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, David Brower Center, Ed Roberts Campus, Lawrence Hall of Science, and the UC Botanical Garden. And Berkeley’s famed restaurants offer a number of great options for private dining and events.

With its wealth of cultural and social diversity, culinary and shopping opportunities and recreational pursuits, Berkeley is a small city with a big reputation, and offers a compelling range of creative off-site options for after-hours bonding to build unbreakable relationships.
