Expanded and Renovated Convention Center Opening Early 2021

We’re excited to share the news of our expanded and renovated SAFE Credit Union Convention Center opening March 2021. When we’re in our next normal, we’ll still be America’s Farm-to- Fork Capital with Michelin-rated restaurants, home to 700+ murals, a convention package with three hotels just steps away from the convention center, easily walkable downtown, and accessible by 150+ daily flights. Talk to our team and learn how Sacramento should be your next go-to meeting destination. We can’t wait to see you in person.

(Updated: 10/1/20) Currently, no large gatherings are allowed in Sacramento County (or anywhere in California). However, facilities and hotels are adding stringent health and safety protocols to ensure guests are comfortable upon the return to meetings. The new SAFE Credit Union Convention Center recently received its GBAC Star Accreditation which identifies the convention center as a showcase example of commitment to ensuring a clean, safe, and healthy environment employees, customers, and stakeholders.


(Updated: 10/1/20) Sacramento County has been downgraded to the red tier by the California Department of Public Health. This means that our risk level has moved to substantial from widespread. Therefore, some non-essential indoor businesses have reopened at 25 percent capacity, including indoor dining, movie theaters, churches and personal services. Other non-essential services that can open must do so with modifications. Please check the COVID-19 website for detailed information.
