Accommodations will have to be self-arranged by attendees. Registered attendees are able to join the #housing channel in the conference slack (access given upon registration) for ease of discussing sharing hotels, Airbnbs, etc. Below are some nearby hotel options; be sure to check back often, as we are looking into possibly getting discount codes for certain hotels in the area.

Friday & Saturday Event Events

Friday Night Event
For Friday night, we have organized a local robotics team lab tour for the night before the conference (Friday, August 25, 5:30 – 9:00pm), for FMC attendees to be able to interact with local teams, see different lab configurations, and network with each other.

After the lab tours, attendees and guests can optionally meet at Guildhouse Bar to socialize pre-conference. Please check the attendee slack (or the email sent to registered attendees) for details about the lab tour locations and specific times.

Saturday Night Event
For Saturday night, we’ve secured tickets to attend the local San Jose Giants minor league baseball game (6pm on Sat. Aug 26)! Tickets can be purchased using the link below to be part of the FIRST Mentor Conference seat section. The stadium has concessions and vendors available for individual food purchases. Guests who are not attending the conference are also able to purchase tickets, so feel free to invite others.
