Where will it take place? - Most of the action will take place in The McEnery Convention Center, San José, California.

Will I need to stay in a hotel? - There is no requirement to stay in a hotel, nor do you have to be a hotel guest to participate in ConJosé functions held in hotels.

Is the convention suitable for children? - ConJosé welcomes child members and will be providing some childcare facilities for the benefit of members with children (for details click here).
