Welcome Connect Marketplace Attendees

The Visit Sacramento Team will be on site in Orlando and virtually to share the exciting news of our expanded and renovated 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.

 

Sacramento's newly named SAFE Credit Union Sacramento Convention Center is entering the home stretch of its extreme makeover featuring a dynamic center for conventions, meetings, and cultural experiences. Despite the effects of COVID-19, the expansion and renovation construction of the convention center has continued throughout 2020 to ensure a March 2021 opening. Customers will enjoy an expanded exhibit hall, new ballroom, additional meeting rooms and a new outdoor plaza. The building has received GBAC Star Accreditation which identifies the convention center as a showcase example of commitment to ensuring a clean, safe, and healthy environment for employees, customers, and stakeholders. Contact your Visit Sacramento team to book your next convention or meeting.
