Getting There

We recommend flying into San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Oakland International Airport and Mineta San José Airport are other options, but not as close to where we’ll begin and end the Field Study. If you fly into San Francisco, you’ll be able to take a taxi or Uber to our conference hotel, and won’t need to rent a car for the event.

Where to Stay

We have secured a limited number of discounted rooms at the Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City. To secure the $269 per night rate, guests should call the Sofitel Reservations Department at (650) 598-9000 and mention the name Innovation Leader. The reservations department is open from Monday-Friday from 7am-7pm and 8am-5pm on Saturdays. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis until the block is full. All reservations must be made by March 9th to secure the discounted rate.

Getting Around

Field Study participants will travel together on luxury motorcoaches.


Your registration fee includes all meals on March 30th, and breakfast and lunch on March 31st.
