Stay in the heart of Oakland

We'll come together at the Oakland Marriott City Center, the official Summit hotel and host. We'll be right in the middle of thriving Downtown Oakland, home to some of the best food, drinks and cultural institutions in the U.S. (We're biased, but that doesn't make it any less true.)

Getting there

The Oakland Marriott City Center is located at 1001 Broadway, Oakland, CA. It's just one block from 12th Street BART station, making it fast and easy to get to from Oakland International Airport or San Francisco International Airport.

Find your people (finally)

The Summit is the only conference where you can greet someone with a handshake and leave them with a hug. You’ll connect with thousands of people from across the country working to improve government.

“Of all the conferences and trainings I do, I learn more valuable, applicable information in the three days of this conference than all others combined. It sets the tone and mindset for a whole year of getting stuff done.”
