Venues We Love in San Jose - The Tech Museum of Innovation

The second of a two part series, this week we focus on a unique venue at the southern end of the Bay Area, The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. We have partnered with them to produce many memorable events, and we love its unbeatable combination of location, exciting and fun exhibits, and meeting space possibilities.

The Tech Museum is in the heart of downtown San Jose, in close proximity to the major tech companies in Silicon Valley, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, several national brand upscale hotels in walking distance, and Mineta San Jose International Airport 5-10 minutes away. This makes the venue ideal for any meeting or conference that is themed around technology or innovation.

Fun Fact: The Tech Museum was designed by the same world-renown architect that designed the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, Ricardo Legorreta.

By offering an interactive technology museum, an IMAX movie theater, as well as traditional meeting spaces, the Tech Museum lends itself to a number of interesting corporate and nonprofit event possibilities, including employee meetings, gala fundraisers, cocktail receptions, team building events, and training sessions. At 130,000 total square feet, it can accommodate large groups easily.

Meeting Space

For a more formal conference/meeting space, the New Venture Hall is a 3,600 square foot flexible rectangular space that can accommodate classroom seating, theater seating and rounds. The Tech Museum has full audio visual capabilities and a fantastic audio visual support team, whether you need projection, audio or lighting support. Lastly, the museum can assist with any catering needs your event might require.

Check out The Tech Museum for your next corporate, nonprofit or personal event -- you won't be disappointed.
