VIDEO: The Value of Your San Diego Convention Center

We wanted to start a conversation about the primary function of your San Diego Convention Center.

We decided to take on some of your most common questions, such as "What is a convention center?" and "Why does it matter to me?"

In under five minutes, our President & CEO Rip Rippetoe answers those questions and more.

This video gives a general overview of how a convention center works and why your San Diego Convention Center is an economic benefit to our region.

Our job is to create economic impact by hosting events. This guarantees visitors from out-of-town who spend money in the San Diego region. Whether it is a restaurant downtown or one of our iconic attractions, convention attendee spending supports San Diego as a whole.

Every week, events we host bring thousands of visitors to San Diego, people who would not be here without the conventions hosted in our building.

We invite you to watch the video below.
