About the area:
Santa Clara Valley encompasses the suburban sprawl between Milpitas on the east and Palo Alto on the west. Located just south of San Francisco in the center of the Santa Clara Valley's high-tech corridor internationally known as "Silicon Valley," the Santa Clara Convention Center is the state-of-the-art meeting, trade, and convention complex has taken its cue from the dynamic business that now surrounds it.
In addition to being one of the most modern, well-equipped facilities in the state, the Santa Clara Convention Center is the only complete resort-style convention center in the Bay Area, featuring an 18-hole championship golf course and complete tennis facility. Santa Clara is home of Santa Clara University offering a rigorous undergraduate curriculum in the arts and sciences, business, and engineering.
