San Francisco Is Ready to Welcome International Conference Attendees

“There’s a palpable interest and excitement about going to San Francisco,” said ATS Chief Executive Officer Karen J. Collishaw, MPP, CAE. “People like San Francisco. It’s our most popular city traditionally in terms of attendance numbers.”

The conference took place virtually in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the Moscone Center will host in-person conference activities.

“For the past two years, our community shifted to an all-virtual environment. While we are all grateful for technology and the ability to connect anywhere at any time, we are thrilled to welcome our community back to an in-person experience in San Francisco,” Ms. Collishaw said.

Located in the heart of the South of Market/Yerba Buena Gardens neighborhood, Moscone Center is ideally situated for easy access to one-of-a-kind dining, shopping, and entertainment. The convention center, which itself features a large collection of public art worth exploring, is within walking distance of multiple cultural venues, hotels, restaurants, and attractions, as well as public transport.

San Francisco is known for its diversity and walkability, and is consistently rated as one of the “greenest” cities in North America.

Visitors say they love the city’s ambiance, scenic beauty, and cuisine, reports the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau. The mild year-round temperatures are another plus.

The SFCVB lists Pier 39 in Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, and the Ferry Building among the Bay Area’s leading attractions based on attendance. San Francisco also boasts 12 unique historic districts and more than 260 buildings that are designated historical landmarks.
