Virtual Backgrounds for Your Next Gathering

Spring has sprung and while we’re all staying home there’s no better time to do that spring cleaning. If you’re like me, spring cleaning tends to have a domino effect and organizing one space often means another becomes cluttered until you’ve worked your way through the entire house. For many of us, our homes are now doubling as our offices so we’re sharing more of them with our colleagues, friends and family during all those Zoom meetings. Did you mean to clean up that mess in the background before your meeting, or perhaps it was a last-minute request? Not to worry — add a virtual background and no one will ever know your house isn’t spotless (your secret is safe with me).

As the days get longer, in more ways than one, our team thought we’d tap into some creative outlets in hopes to help boost your mood or make your day go a bit more smoothly (and take some of the pressure off of getting those house chores done). Instantly transform that room and transport yourself to your happy place. I’ve created four virtual backgrounds with the San Diego Convention Center for you to enjoy, and here’s why I think you’ll love each one:

Not all of us are lucky enough to be morning people. Or are we? Whether you’re a morning person by nature or just loving that short commute to the “office,” now we can all catch the sunrise in the city. It’s shaping up to be a beautiful day! 


Hall H

Wishing you were “getting into Hall H” during a fun event rather than sitting in your living room? We’ve got you covered — and it’s a great conversation-starter!

Who doesn’t love golden hour, especially in San Diego? Catch up with friends while watching a gorgeous sunset overlooking the bay.

Signing on for a night in with friends? Turn things up a notch with beautiful colors illuminating the night’s sky.  

Where else would you like to “meet” in San Diego? Tell us in the comments or head over to the  San Diego Tourism Authority’s blog  to see if your favorite San Diego meeting place has been shared with the community. 

There are a few ways to set up virtual backgrounds. For help doing so, check out these instructions from Zoom
