Transportation, Directions and Parking:
Directions and parking information for the Santa Clara Convention Center are available online.
Please note that the San Francisco 49ers will be having a home game on the same day and time as our event.
The game at Levi’s stadium will start at 1:25 pm. There are road closures. Tasman Drive and the front circle to the Convention Center will be closed.
The only entrance to access the Convention Center Campus will be at Bunker Hill Lane and Great America Parkway. Please enter through Bunker Hill Lane and visibly display your Dashboard Permit. At this location, there will be a check point for guests of the campus who will be screened to make sure they are coming to park for events that we are hosting and not the Stadium. This will slow down the process of getting onto the convention center. Coming early will be what we would recommend so that you arrive at a timely manner.
There will be heavy traffic and congestion on the roadways as we near the stadium event time. This tends to build up more within the last hour before the event at stadium but, traffic does increase up to 3-4 hours prior to the event start with the heaviest as it gets closer to the actual stadium event start due to tailgaters arriving early.
If for whatever reason we should run out of parking, guest for all events will need to then park in alternate parking lots away from our campus at a possible cost. These lots are the same ones the guest for the stadium are also parking at. That rate varies depending on the event, but could be up to $50.00 per car.
From the Convention Center exits, you will be directed onto Great America Parkway Northbound and onto Highway 237. All six lanes of Great America Parking will flow in one direction until most of the guests from the stadium event are gone. They will set up this counter-flow about 1 1/2 -2 hours after the event at the stadium starts.
Again, reminding all that the key is to get to the center early, to avoid these road changes and closures.
