San Diego is one of the most desirable places in America to live. Many people learn this when they come to town for conventions and trade shows at the San Diego Convention Center. The views and weather are breathtaking. The downtown marina area has it all: world class meeting areas, first class hotels, fine dining, unique entertainments, and so much more. The San Diego Convention Center is a dream for meeting planners… It’s situated on the water in the center of a lively downtown. It’s only a few minutes from the airport, and once there, everything is in walking distance. Directly across the street is the historic Gaslamp District which is home to a tremendous selection of restaurants and hip retail stores. Also adjacent to the convention center is Seaport Village and Headquarters; two properties on the water offering exquisite dining and entertainment opportunities. And within walking distance is the USS Midway Museum and Petco Park baseball stadium; home to the Padres. And the public transportation isn’t just convenient, it’s fun. The San Diego trolley’s light rail will whisk you away to just about anywhere you’d like to visit… the Zoo, SeaWorld, even Mexico!
The Convention Center is home to dozens of major conferences throughout the year but by far the biggest of them all is the world-famous Comic Con. Entertainment enthusiasts from all over the world converge on downtown San Diego for one grand week every summer to see what’s in store for the genre. And whether you’re exhibiting, attending the event, or just people watching, you better plan ahead, and plan to see things you’ve never seen before.
San Diego welcomes over 32 million visitors to town every year because of its beauty, charm, and numerous offerings. One very noticeable absence in downtown are billboards. Most major markets have an abundance of unsightly billboards littering their cities, but not San Diego. While a positive for the skyline, it makes advertising challenging for companies hoping to reach convention attendees. Fortunately, LaunchPoint Marketing has the city tastefully covered and can help you impact the entire downtown area with everything from outdoor signage, to experiential display space, mobile billboards, pedicabs, and more. LaunchPoint can work with you to design a robust and powerful advertising campaign that will drive your message home and enhance your convention presence.
