San Francisco and the Bay Area are a top international destination event market. This Fall multiple huge conventions will go on at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. And other event venues around the Bay play host to similar events.
Add a Team-Building Bay Cruise to your San Francisco Convention Agenda
Smart corporate event planners make the most of sending teams of people to the Bay Area, incorporating team events to maximize the ROI of their investment in attendance. Many companies have taken advantage of the proximity of San Francisco Bay to add a sunset dinner cruise to the schedule. This is the perfect team-building event to bring employees closer together as collaborators and to share what everyone learned at the convention.
Event planners have also been pleasantly surprised at the affordability of a yacht charter, as they can obtain a more predictable cost for the evening’s entertainment than other venues may be able to provide. A charter is also highly competitive on price points!
Last year we hosted teams from multiple companies who were visiting San Francisco for conventions. These event planners can vouch for the value of organized evening activities.
Autumn is fast approaching, with thousands of people coming to San Francisco to enjoy the magnificent Autumn weather. There is not a better time for a bay cruise than in September, October and November on San Francisco Bay.
And after a full day of navigating through crowds of people moving between sessions and exhibit halls, leave the navigating to us to provide a relaxing, re-energizing evening on the bay.
