Plan Your Event in the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center

You can't break the norm in normal places, and Sacramento is anything but.

Sacramento's SAFE Credit Union Convention Center provides the perfect mix of modern functionality with flexibility and ease of use to accommodate your meeting or convention. A 160,000-square-food exhibit hall is complemented by two ballrooms, 16 breakout rooms and multiple outdoor spaces to make the most of California's ideal climate.

Making the space customizable was a top priority when the building was expanded and renovated in 2021, and the large lobbies allow for a variety of pre-function setups. Navigating the space is easy, as there are only two levels, and the loading docks allow freight access to specific halls. The kitchen is also centrally located, bringing Sacramento's storied farm-to-fork food to your delegates efficiently.

Filtered water bottle fill stations are one of the many features that earned the building LEED Silver certification, and ample wall outlets and complimentary internet in public spaces and meeting rooms meet all of your delegates’ needs. There are also family and gender-neutral restrooms.

As important as all the meetings space, is that on-site Starbucks, and the two current anchor hotels, the Hyatt Regency and Sheraton Grand each have more than 500 rooms, and there is another 350-room property coming soon, with a sky bridge linking it to the convention center.

Convention Center Specs


Bigger Goals. Better Standards. Bolder Meetings.

Planners considering booking the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center can expect a very indoor-outdoor experience within the expansive complex. Situated on and surrounded by 80 acres of an urban entertainment district, the facility embodies a “high-tech agriculture” aesthetic that blends what our city is all about. It’s a visionary venue that encapsulates the history and the present of Sacramento. The design inspiration reflects the authentic vibe of our destination.


3 Lobbies. 1 Convention Center. Countless Meeting Possibilities.

Because the West, East and North lobbies have their own entrances, ballrooms and meeting spaces, it allows the convention center to host different groups simultaneously. Check out some of the highlights and features each one has to offer.

West Lobby - 13th & K Street - 9,300 Sq. Ft.

Home to the facility's main lobby and West Plaza on the K connection, the West Lobby is the closest entrance for attendees coming from the nearby Sheraton and Hyatt hotels. It includes Halls A and B, administration offices, meeting rooms 1-4 (Green), which lead to Ballrooms A and B. There’s also a new box office and an external-facing Starbucks right on K Street. Attendees can access the coffee shop from outside the building or from the main lobby entrance. Also, just outside this lobby, you’ll find a theater with a beautiful outdoor stage great for entertainment and open-air events.

The East Lobby touts sights of the Sacramento sunshine with a street-level view of the 15,000-sq.-ft. outdoor plaza area. Stunning floor-to-ceiling windows allow for natural lighting throughout the lobby, and there is a terrace outside of Pre-function B. You’ll also find Halls B, C and D and meeting rooms 5-11 (Blue) leading to Ballrooms A and B, as well.

Accessibility to Accommodations, Walkability to Wander

The Sheraton and Hyatt hotels in downtown Sacramento are easily accessible to and from the convention center’s West Lobby entrance on K Street. This area is all about the pedestrian with a focus on Downtown’s walkability to and from the facility to hotels, dining, entertainment and more.
