Oakland From Home
By being destination experts, the Visit Oakland Sales Team personalizes the sourcing process for your next conferences or meeting. We consult with planners on the best availability for meetings and curate connections with hotels, vendors and the community. Our team will also recommend sourcing overflow rooms, off-site venues, vendor referrals, nonprofit referrals for corporate social responsibility programs, local official resources (including street closures and city permits) and much more.
