Traveling to Sonoma
Sonoma is conveniently located just 45 miles north of San Francisco should attendees wish to spend some time in the city before or after the conference. Attendees can choose to fly into SFO or OAK as each are about equal distance to Sonoma. If you do not wish to spend time in the city, OAK is probably the more convenient option. There are also limited flights into the Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, STS.
Car rentals are available at any of the airports. If need help arranging private transportation, please contact us.
NOTE ABOUT TRAFFIC: Please be advised that heading north on the 101 out of SFO across the Golden Gate bridge to Marin and Sonoma counties, while scenic, can mean extra long drive times between the hours of 3 and 7pm.
