What We Do
Our mission is to drive visitation which boosts the local economy and enhances the quality of life in San Jose. We accomplish this through the effective operation and promotion of San Jose’s convention center and cultural facilities. We also serve as the official tourism marketing organization for San Jose, providing convention & visitor bureau services to boost meeting and leisure business to local hotels, attractions, parks, restaurants, etc.
Who We Are
Launched in 2004, Team San Jose is a non-profit management corporation that operates the San Jose Convention Center and cultural venues such as South Hall, Parkside Hall, San Jose Civic, California Theatre, Center for the Performing Arts and Montgomery Theater, and serves as the convention and visitors bureau for San Jose. Team San Jose is an economic driver in Silicon Valley, evolving into a $20 million company with more than 300 employees.
Team San Jose ensures the success of meetings and events with its unique collaboration between the local hotels, arts groups, and local labor – all working to effectively manage the quality of the customers’ experience from beginning to end. San Jose’s model is changing the way the meetings and conventions industry serves customers—putting them first with one team for all their event services needs – rather than handing them off to multiple organizations after the meeting is booked. Our Event Services team handles everything – taking away stress from event planners so they and their delegates have more time and energy to play in San Jose. Team San Jose’s success has supported the local economy by attracting events and visitors which drive spending in local hotels, cultural and convention venues, restaurants and attractions, which in turn helps create jobs. The organization’s seamless service has received raves from planners, with most customers surveyed saying they’d return to San Jose in the future.
Team San Jose is a strategic partner supporting the success of local events, and drives travel to our community through sales, marketing and public relations efforts. We provide services such as concierge assistance for major meetings, visitor desks at the airport and convention center, as well as planning guides available in print or download.
