345 Spear St, San Francisco, CA 94105

Between Folsom and Harrison Street, at 345 Spear Street, your will find some stairs that will take you up to a quite anonymous door. Take the elevator up to the 7th floor where the registration - and the event - will take place. There will be storage room if you are traveling with luggage.

Google Maps:

Transportation / parking:

If you are coming in from the Valley, a good option for public transportation is Caltrain. It will take you to 4th street, and from there you can take an Uber or a tram. Caltrain schedule:
If you plan to come in by car, expect heavy traffic in the morning. Paid parking in parking garage underneath the building, entrance on 25 Folsom St between Embarcadero and Spear Street. Rumors say it’s about $25 for a full day, and it’s sometimes full.
Metered street parking outside with limited space.  Another option is the parking garage at 75 Howard Street. 


Ride the ClueBus to SAP TechEd in Las Vegas 

We are hiring Green Tortoise Bus Company to drive us in a bus that will leave at 9pm right after #SITsv in San Francisco. Their busses are sleeper buses and while we are sleeping they drive us to wake up in Yosemite. We will spend a day of hiking in the park and in the evening have a camp fire for stories and songs. We will board the bus again around midnight. We will be driven through the night to arrive in Las Vegas late Sunday morning. In time to relax and get ready for the the start of SAP TechEd
All that including food for the price of $150 as Neptune Software is sponsoring part the ClueBus for us.
Grab your ticket here:

That's less than one-way plane ride to Las Vegas and a lot more fun!

P.S. ClueBus is following an almost forgotten tradition of the Cluetrain to TechEd from many moons ago.
