Take a moment to think about a package—any type of package, from a newly delivered box on your doorstep to a digital bundle of services. What are some of the best features of this package for you? Is one of them the element of excitement or mystery from not knowing what’s inside? Because the package exists, is something made simpler or easier in your life? Does its collective of parts create something even cooler as a whole?

When it comes to meeting and event planners, all of the best features of what makes a package significant can also be found throughout Sacramento's Convention Package. The sum of its parts—most notably the new meeting options, convenience, flexibility and diverse entertainment—has created one of the most vibrant convention districts in the country.

The Sacramento Convention Center is situated in the new SAFE Credit Union Convention and Performing Arts District and is just 15 minutes from Sacramento International Airport. Currently, the center is experiencing one of the most exciting expansion and renovation projects of the meetings industry. New enhancements include an expanded exhibit hall featuring 160,000 square feet of fresh space. Other significant developments include a new ballroom with 40,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, additional breakout rooms, a new outdoor plaza and a full-service Starbucks.

Two major convention hotels are steps away from the convention center, the Sheraton Grand and the Hyatt Regency—featuring 1,008 rooms combined. And of the region’s 16,000 total hotel rooms, more than 4,000 are within a three-mile radius of the convention center. Convenience merges with excitement as Downtown, Midtown, and the nearby Old Sacramento Waterfront are teeming with delicious-farm-to-fork restaurants, retail hotspots, live event venues, local festivals and various art and cultural pursuits for attendees to explore.
