CEO/Senior Planner at Magnetic Magnificent Events

“What makes Oakland especially great for smaller meetings is the fact that there’s so many hotels to choose from in all the different areas of Oakland… you’ve got close to the airport, you’ve got downtown, you’ve got the waterfront, really key places. but small meetings are perfect [in Oakland] because of the independent hotels that you can deal with and the ease of contracting with them."
