Your host city


San Francisco, California, USA is the ideal location for ICSBOC2020. With a population of just under one million, San Francisco is the cultural, commercial and financial center of Northern California. It is also home to the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the seven wonders of the world, as well as the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and many other bridges, making it the ideal backdrop for the International Cable Supported Bridge Operators Conference.

We encourage you to arrive a few days before the conference, or plan to stay on after.

San Francisco is a port city and ICSBOC2020 attendees may explore vibrant neighborhoods, consisting of everything from fine dining to gorgeous public art and green spaces. With numerous historic sites, an unbeatable food scene and world-renowned art and cultural institutions, San Francisco has something for everyone.

For breath-taking views or a taste of chowder bread bowls and California wines, your visit to San Francisco needs to include a stop to Pier 39. Plan to visit one of San Francisco’s most historic sites, Alcatraz Island, or head over to Lombard Street to experience what is often called the “crookedest” street in the world. It’s for all these reasons and more that San Francisco will leave a lasting impression during your visit for the 11th International Cable Supported Bridge Operator’s Conference.
