Air Sensors International Conference

Downtown Oakland is Alive with Activities!

ASIC has paired with Visit Oakland to help you navigate your time in downtown Oakland during the conference. We are excited to share grand city adventures with a friendly downtown vibe. 

"Oakland, in the hub of the Bay Area, is both historic and modern. Visitors will find a little bit of everything in this diverse metropolis, from the picturesque waterfront to expansive hills. Explore Oakland's growing arts, entertainment and food scene or enjoy recreational opportunities like hiking, sailing and biking. Root for one of the three professional sports teams or take a tour of a historic landmark. The city is easily accessible through Oakland International Airport, train, automobile, BART, bus and ferry." - Trip Advisor
