    The San Diego Convention Center is the official host of the 2014 SID Display Week, located on the harbor in downtown San Diego, this Convention Center is the premier meeting and conference facility for the region.

    San Diego is not only a natural beauty, it's also one of the nation's most vibrant cities and the Convention Center is at the heart of all the action. The building is just a short stroll away from an exciting array of sidewalk cafes, specialty shops, and clubs in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, thousands of hotel rooms, gorgeous waterfront parks, and some of the finest restaurants in Southern California.

    Housing and accommodation should be booked online through Display Week to receive a discounted rate at:

    • The Hilton San Diego Bayfront
      The Hilton offers free internet, free access to the fitness center, and a Starbucks coupon on day of arrival for those who make reservations through Globetrotter.
    • The Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego

    The conference hotels are located very close to the Convention Center and the room block sells out very quickly, so book your room as soon as possible.
