Corporate Meetings & Events

We understand the importance of an inspiring setting in order to release the creativity and expertise of your delegates. At San Francisco Zoo we endeavor to do just that, whether it be a boardroom meeting for 10 or an elaborate Summer picnic for 1000.


What We Offer

Our elegant suites and stylish meeting rooms are set among 100 acres of zoological gardens, home to 260 different species of animals; an inspiring setting to nurture an unforgettable event. Our versatile venue spaces can be set up in a number of styles, ideal for meetings, conferences, presentations, product launches, dinner dances, summer picnics, staff retreats and holiday parties.

To support your organization's Corporate Responsibility Policy, we use sustainable and fair trade produce, locally sourced wherever possible. In addition, all Zoo profits from your event will go towards our conservation projects, helping critically endangered animals and their habitats around the world.

Spaces For Hire

With the needs and preferences of our corporate clients in mind, we recommend the below venue spaces for private hire. These spaces can be booked alone or in conjunction with each other.
