The Communications Network Annual Conference

ComNet — The Communications Network annual conference. 

Pre-Conference Field Trips

We are offering Pre-Conference Field Trips to anyone interested in exploring Bay Area communications hot spots.  We're giving you a chance to peek behind the curtain at some of the most innovative and influential communications operations in the Bay Area.  Join us for a field trip on Wednesday, October 10 before the official opening of the conference.

Before registering for a Pre-Conference Field Trip, please note: 

  • You must be registered for the conference in order to attend.
  • These are small group trips — approximately 15 people per site.  
  • Because of the limited availability we must restrict the trips to one per person.  
  • In the spirit of ComNet community we are also asking that no organization send more than one representative on any one trip.
  • Each field trip lasts approximately 2 hours + travel time (times below reflect travel).
  • Like our pre-conference workshops, these field trips come at an additional cost and are not included in general registration for the conference.  Field trips are $150 for Network Members and $250 for non-members.  Transportation is included.
