InitiativesDiscover Santa Clara™™ values our community and environment. As part of our overall organizations goals we have several initiatives in place to help protect and give back to the community.
Conference Center Convenient Meetings in Santa Clara
Located at 5001 Great America Parkway, the Santa Clara Convention Center is considered Silicon Valley’s premier convention space due to its centralized location and easy access to some of the world’s top companies. With over 262,000 square feet of flexible meeting spaces, the high-tech facility can accommodate a range of events including conventions, trade shows, conferences, corporate meetings, weddings and receptions, and other types of special occasions.
As one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the nation, we are overjoyed to be making a positive impact on the environment. Here at the Santa Clara Convention Center we pride ourselves on being a positive force in the community and environment. We received the Green Power Champion Certificate for purchasing 100% renewable wind and solar energy. We were honored to be acknowledged for the Green Power Champion Corporate half-Turbine Level award.
The purpose of the teaching kitchens is to work with the local underserved community by giving them a chance to go through a six week hospitality course with its prime focus on culinary skills. By the end of the course they will have the basic fundamental understanding of culinary, the hospitality industry, resume building and interview strategies. The object by the end of the course is to provide a new set of skills and assist them in job placement, setting them on a path of future success in the hospitality industry.
