San Jose, Capital of the Silicon Valley

The oldest city in California and today's urban core of the Silicon Valley, San Jose serves as the host city to the 2010 CMO Council CMO Summit. The 10th largest city in the nation is also the largest city in the Bay Area, situated roughly 50 miles south of San Francisco. This city of over 1 million residents is the epitome of reinvention. Having started as a hotbed of agricultural innovation and advancement, it has since given way to the technology revolution shaping the very core of business and global connection. Home to global giants like Adobe, Cisco and eBay, San Jose is also emerging as the epicenter of clean technology innovation and creativity, as emerging clean tech powers like SunPower and Windspire Energy are also based in the city.
