Schedule of Events and Directions

Attendees of The Seasteading Conference arriving from outside of the Bay area may fly into San Francisco, Oakland, or San Jose airports. Transportation to and from the conference and related events will likely be easiest from San Francisco airport (SFO) via the local SuperShuttle transport service. Be sure to call in advance to confirm your reservation.

 

The conference will take place at the Le Méridien Hotel in San Francisco’s financial district, with the Thursday reception, Friday dinner at Forbes Island, and Saturday’s sunset cruise all taking place at the locations noted below. Each location will be a 10-20 minute car or cab ride from Le Méridien Hotel, depending on traffic. Some attendees may prefer to take a long walk from Le Méridien if the weather is nice – we recommend using GoogleMaps to plan your route if you choose this option.

 

You can now download the program in PDF format, as well.
