  • Transportation Updates

    Our Convention takes place while San Francisco is hosting its biggest international event in nearly 80 years – the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Economic Leaders’ Week. Heads of state and other dignitaries from around the world will be in the city with us. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of President Biden (or at least his motorcade). It will be an exciting time to be in San Francisco! There will be a noticeable increase in security as a result, so be aware that could lead to longer than normal travel times within the city. We encourage you to take that into account when planning your travels and to consider public transportation options when possible. We are in constant communication with the Palace Hotel as our event draws nearer, and you should feel free to contact them with any questions about your stay (415-512-1111).
