Accommodations & Travel

BlueTech Week includes 7 events over 5 days in various locations around San Diego, California.  Guests should arrange to land at San Diego International Airport (SAN), which is ideally located in the center of San Diego and less than 10 minutes from the hotel venue for Wednesday-Friday events.

Just a half-mile from the airport, the Sheraton San Diego Bay Tower Hotel & Marina is the venue for the 11th annual BlueTech Summit & Tech Expo (Wednesday & Thursday), the BlueTech Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony (Wednesday evening), and the 4th annual BlueTech Investors Day (Friday). 

BlueTech Week Room Block is now SOLD OUT. See below for other hotel options.

Please book your accommodations as soon as possible, as hotels for these dates are booking very quickly. A few hotels of interest include The Dana on Mission Bay, Bay Club Hotel and Marina, Hilton Homewood Suites, Wyndham San Diego Bay Side, Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina  . These offer rates of ~ $250/night, however this is subject to change as demand goes up.

The Monday BlueTech Cluster Convening and Triple-Helix Dialogue will be held at The San Diego Foundation (tentative) and the UN Decade of Ocean Science Conference will be held at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla (approx. 45 minute drive from downtown during the commute hour). 

Parking is not easy, therefore it is recommended that travelers arrange for taxi service or use your favorite mobile rideshare service (Lyft, Uber, etc.).  Additionally, the BlueTech Week event app provided by Whova enables attendees to arrange carpool options ahead of time.
