Conference Venue: The Oakland Convention Center

The Oakland Convention Center

WELCOME BACK TO OAKLAND for CNCH 2014 where we can experience a comfortable and intimate fiber conference in a dynamic urban setting!

As we discovered in 2012, Oakland has many advantages for our gathering. CNCH will be the only major event, so our activities will dominate the easily accessible spaces – whether for our expansive Market Place or informal gatherings in corridor parlors.

Oakland Convention Center offers wonderful space for our Galleries, Demonstrations, Banquet, and Fashion Show, and the spacious classrooms are well designed with good lighting and close access to water. The Marriott City Center Hotel is connected to the conference area, so our paths flow easily from guest rooms to activities. In addition, the hotel offers the Level Two Restaurant, Twelve Bar Lounge, and Peet’s Coffee on the second level lobby, as well as a fitness center and heated outdoor pool. Neighborhood boutiques and restaurants are right out the front door for quick exploration.

Oakland has many transportation options and, once here, a convenient City Parking Garage connected to the center. CNCH attendees are guaranteed to receive a parking voucher to reduce each daily fee to $18 per day. This comfortable venue is perfect as we Branch Out with Fibers at CNCH 2014!
