Map of CaliforniaSan José is the capital of Silicon Valley and is situated about 50 miles south of San Francisco. It is the largest city in Northern California, has a warm and pleasant climate, and has topped the list of the USA's safest big cities for the last five years. It is, in short, a very pleasant place to visit.

We have provided a guide to the convention facilities here.

The Local Resources Guide (or as a .PDF) is designed to help you find things you might need or want to make your stay a more pleasant one

Downtown San José may be clogged with the Tapestry street fair. Plan your transportation carefully.

If you are concerned about the potential effect of the California Energy Crisis on ConJosé please see our special statement here.
