The Communications Network Annual Conference

ComNet — The Communications Network annual conference. 


Opening Night Reception


Join us for the Opening Night Reception at The Exploratorium on Wednesday, October 10 from 6:30 - 9:00pm PT. Kick back with drinks and light appetizers and enjoy the company of 900 of your friends and colleagues in a special setting along San Francisco Bay!

How to get there? We're encouraging everyone to join their Community Groups to walk to The Exploratorium (you should have heard from your group leader with a meet up spot and departure time). It's a terrific way to meet new folks, see old friends, and get into the spirit of ComNet18. Rest assured, the walk is easy (no hills) and roughly one mile from the hotel through downtown San Francisco and along the Bay on the Embarcadero. It should take you about 30 minutes to stroll to there. Please plan accordingly and make sure you wear comfortable shoes. The museum is located at Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green St.)
