“Walnut Creek looks forward to PCMA Northern California LEAP on May 17! Guests will experience Walnut Creek while attending a fantastic day of meetings at the recently renovated Walnut Creek Marriott.

Walnut Creek hotels are experiencing a revitalization with the completion of multiple renovations and updates. With a central location between two wine regions and near San Francisco, Walnut Creek has become the new frontier of Bay Area meetings and events.

The new Shadelands Sportsplex is also beginning to transform the sports landscape in the Bay Area. With new facilities planned for multiple sports, and the opening of the Ultimate Fieldhouse for basketball events, new tournaments and sports/wellness travelers will soon visit the Jewel of the East Bay.

Consider staying overnight before or after LEAP to further experience all that is happening in Walnut Creek – including the new Broadway Plaza and scenic open space near Mount Diablo.”
