SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Santa Clara Convention Center continues its trend as a premier meeting and event space in Silicon Valley. After hosting 515 events in fiscal year 2012-13, the Convention Center is again on pace to top the 500 mark. The award-winning venue has hosted 470 events during fiscal year 2013-14 through March. Nearly 350,000 meeting and event attendees conduct business annually at the Santa Clara Convention Center and help fill hotels during the lucrative mid-week period and on weekends.
The Convention Center, a previous "Best Event Venue" winner by the Silicon Valley Concierge Association, is also annually recognized by the Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) for its recycling and conservation efforts.
Convention Center President & CEO Steve Van Dorn credits the Convention Center's success to the staff's high quality of service as well as the addition of the five year old 22,400 sq. ft. Mission City Ballroom. "Our clients consistently give us high marks in all areas, and the Mission City Ballroom has become a hot commodity," said Van Dorn.
