Silicon Valley Experience

If the Silicon Valley's command of the high-tech marketplace intrigues you, don't miss this bus tour.

We'll also take you to some of the region's historical sites to put in perspective the Silicon Valley's past, present and future.

Cost: $95 per person; box lunch included.

Networking Dinner

San Francisco and Bay Area Tour
Tuesday, May 22, 12:45 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Panasonic Internet Incubator, Women's Technology Cluster, Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center and TechSpace will open their doors to NBIA conference attendees. Then we'll head to the waterfront for shopping and dining at the establishment of your choice.
