Sacramento: This is Now

Sacramento is experiencing a true renaissance. Your delegates will feel the excitement as soon as they get to California's Capital city.

The catalyst is the opening of the new state-of-the-art 17,500-seat Golden 1 Center, the home of NBA's Sacramento Kings. This four-block multi-use facility will also include up to 1.5 million square feet of additional space to include a new hotel, retail and office space.

It's complemented by a thriving arts scene brightening the downtown and Midtown areas, locally owned boutiques catering to discerning tastes, craft cocktails being just as easy to find as a beer from one of the region's 60-plus breweries, and as America's Farm-to-Fork Capital, Sacramento is home to the largest farmers market in the state, where chefs are shopping for the food you'll eat that day at their restaurants. And it's all caffeinated by a robust group of local coffee roasters that made Sacramento one of the best city for coffee lovers.
