Meet. Dine. Smile.

We know a meeting planner's work is never truly done. From putting out fires all day to schmoozing with the clients at those evening receptions, it's exhausting and stressful. While we could tell you to stroll along the riverfront in picturesque Old Sacramento, tour the California State Railroad Museum or rub shoulders with the movers and shakers at the Capitol, we know you'd probably rather take any spare moment to catch up on sleep or sit down and savor the delicious meal you worked so hard to earn.

With more Zagat-rated restaurants than San Francisco, you're never far from a great meal. Sacramento is America's Farm-to-Fork Capital, so the food you eat here will be fresh, sustainable and locally sourced. Feel guilty that the kids are eating frozen meals at home while you're eating at a true farm-to-fork restaurant? ...sure, but it's OK to feed your soul.

Food CollageThe Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau is here to ensure that you've got all the support you need so you aren't weighed down by small details and can hit the snooze button even on conference days. After all, your hotel is just across the street from the Sacramento Convention Center.

Award-Winning Meals for Attendees
Classique Catering is the F&B provider for the Sacramento Convention Center. Classique staff pride themselves on serving excellent food made with farm-fresh ingredients. Additionally, hotel chefs planning menus for smaller conferences follow the same philosophy. Cross "Deal with complaints about the food" off your list.

Unique Venues Fit Your Meeting
The SCVB staff are the experts on Sacramento, and when you're looking for the best place to host an off-site reception, breakout session or strategy meeting, we can help you find the perfect venue. Venues include everything from private rooms in wine tasting rooms to penthouse suites overlooking the city and the impressive Memorial Auditorium. All of those can be found within four blocks of the Convention Center. While there are other venues within driving distance, we can help set you up with transportation as needed. Cross off "Stress about whether the venue will actually hold my group."

Convention Services Department is Here for You
Whether you need help finding housing for your meeting attendees or providing Sacramento Visitors' Guides, badge holders, connections to printing services or anything else, the SCVB Convention Services Department can provide exactly what you need. If your group qualifies, the Services Department can also work with you to host events coinciding with your conference. X-out "Stress about the little details."

We Are Your Destination Experts
No one knows Sacramento better than the locals who promote it. When your bosses want to know what to see and do, where to eat and what not to miss, let us handle it.

Now that you've crossed several headaches off your list, you can guiltlessly savor dinner at a great restaurant and catch your breath during the day.
