CAX Speaker Schedule, Parking and Reminders

California Extreme/ August 15, 2023/ Uncategorized

Here is the Speaker schedule and some reminders as we get ready for California Extreme this weekend!


On Saturday the 19th at 5:30pm, Levi’s Stadium across the street will be hosting a 49ers preseason game which means most roads entering the hotel and convention center will be closed before and after the event. Be aware that there may be traffic before and after the event between 1:30pm – 11pm. You are encouraged to come early on Saturday and park in the Convention Center garage well before the game. See here for more information and a map on how to get to the convention center. 


Pre-registration has ended for this year, but tickets are still available at the door the day of the show. Come to the registration area and you can purchase your tickets there. For more information, click here

Please note that if you are pre-registered, you can get in one hour early at 10 am on the days you have tickets for.
