External view of Convention CenterFramed by a 125-foot abstract tile mural, the San Jose McEnery Convention Center is in the center of the city of San Jose, in the heart of the Silicon Valley.

The main exhibit hallThe Convention Center encompasses over 425,000 square feet of function space. It offers over 143,000 square feet of column-free exhibit space that is separated into three open areas. The picture below is a panoramic view of the hall assembled from five separate photographs.

A panoramic view of the hallThis area will be used for fixed functions, including the Dealers' Room and Art Show.

The Convention Center has 30-foot-high finished ceilings. The doors opening on to the exhibit hall have upward sliding doors to easy access.

Meeting room CMeeting room BThere are up to 30 additional meeting rooms, which will be used primarily for programming. In the picture on the right, the room was set up for a conference, the one of left was shown to us empty.

Another meeting roomConJosé staff test out one of the meeting rooms during a walkthrough of the Convention Center.

Main entranceThis is the view that greets you as you enter the Convention Center. The exhibition hall is on the upper level. Stairs, escalators and elevators to the upper level are available.

RegistrationAt the back of the entrance hall is this area marked "registration". We think we might put the ConJosé registration area here.

Left view from RegistrationRight view from RegistrationThese two pictures show the views left and right from the registration area.

Business centerConciergeThe McEnery provides a business center and a concierge desk for the convenience of visitors. The business center is on the ground floor close to registration and the concierge desk is in the foyer.

Loading bay - distant viewLoading bay - near viewThe Convention Center has 12 loading bays with drive-on access to the exhibit hall floors. Unless you are selling surplus Saturn Vs we do not anticipate any difficulty with access.

MonitorsThe Convention Center provides dozens of these dual monitors, which allow preprogrammed tape items to be displayed around the main floor. ConJose is exploring how to make best use of this facility.

Press roomThis meeting room is set up for press conferences and other functions requiring good quality lighting and presentations.

The McEnery calls this office the VIP Lounge. Nice artwork. What else can I say, except, "would you like to work for us?"

BalconyAnother balconySeveral balconies exist on the upper level. Smoking is not permitted inside the building but you may smoke on the balconies.

Hilton entrance - ground floorHilton entrance - both floorsThe Convention Center is connected to the Hilton on both the ground floor and the upper level.
