Oakland is a leading international destination for events. In autumn, an assortment of major conventions will take place at various venues in the area. Such events often serve as a backdrop for offsite meetings and team-building activities. Adding a Bay cruise to your Oakland convention agenda could be a game-changing decision for your team.

Cruise the Bay During Your Oakland Convention this Fall

Wise corporate event planners are sure to maximize the opportunity to send their teams to relevant conventions in Oakland. They know that these events have the potential to deliver a powerful meeting return-on-investment (ROI).
Numerous companies also recognize the advantage of being so close to the Bay. That proximity makes it so easy to include a spectacular dinner cruise among the activities. This will be an ideal time to strengthen your employees as a team, enabling them to share what they learn at the convention. This is also a time when your team members can collaborate, and the experience may inspire plans for current and future projects.

Last year, we were proud to be the host for companies that were in the area to attend a convention. We have found that in many cases, event planners are surprised and delighted by how affordable a yacht charter actually can be. Charters are quite competitive in terms of cost, and because the prices are relatively predictable, they may be easier to plan for than trying to find things to do in Oakland. In addition, for those who have planned company yacht charters in the past, they know that having an organized agenda for evening activities is invaluable.

Fall will soon be here, and thousands of people plan to flock to Oakland to participate in local events. While here, they are likely to appreciate the incredible weather we get in the autumn. When you cruise with us during this season, you will see firsthand that September through November is the best time of year to be on the Bay.

After a long day of making your way through throngs of people at your convention, you can rest easy in the fact that your evening will be both relaxing and invigorating. At this point, you can leave the details to our team, so you may enjoy quality time with your team.

Below are some of the largest and most noteworthy conventions that will take place in Oakland this autumn:
