All conference hotel blocks are closed. Please be sure that if you booked a hotel room, you notify the property that you’re staying in town for the Watermark Conference for Women. 



We highly encourage the use of public transportation and/ or carpooling to minimize time spent in traffic and looking for parking.  If you’re not within driving distance, consider flying into San Jose via our Official Travel Partner, Alaska Airlines.

No matter how you travel, you should know that several thousand attendees will be arriving at the Convention Center at approximately the same time on conference day—and plan for the possibility of delays.

Public Transportation:

The Convention Center Station is located in front of the McEnery (San Jose) Convention Center and is served by Valley Transportation Authority’s Light Rail (Green and Blue lines), and Bus Lines 23 and 523.

For trip planning help, maps, and other nearby bus lines, visit

Download VTA’s EZFare smartphone app to pre-purchase your Single Ride, Express Ride, or Day Pass (good for unlimited rides all day).

Caltrain provides rail service between San Jose and San Francisco and is an option for attendees that wish to travel south to attend. The San Jose Diridon station is across the street from SAP Center (so arriving attendees could potentially walk there to take a shuttle to the Conference) or they could take the VTA Light Rail from the Diridon station to the Convention Center (two stops away).

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is another transit system that focuses on transportation through the East Bay and San Francisco. Attendees can easily take BART to Milbrae and transfer to the Caltrain to head to San Jose for the Conference. There are also bus options (VTA) that will allow attendees to get to Downtown San Jose from the Fremont station.
