The home of the San Francisco Giants will have a new name next season, but will offer the same outstanding features for groups attending games and private gatherings.
Oracle Park, formerly AT&T Park, is situated in the city’s South Beach neighborhood and has been widely praised as one of the most gorgeous sports venues in the United States. Oracle has sponsored Giants Enterprises, the wholly owned subsidiary of the Giants that is responsible for its nonbaseball and special events. The annual Oracle CloudFest concerts, held during Oracle OpenWorld, have been hosted at the stadium for the past three years.
Ben Feder, marketing coordinator for Giants Enterprises, described the park’s virtues as a meetings venue.
Why is Oracle Park a great place for meeting groups to meet at or to tour?
From the speakeasy vibes of the Gotham Club to the rich baseball history coloring the walls of Cooperstown S.F., the park has a set of unique venues that are unlike any other around San Francisco.
Tours serve as the perfect complement to your off-site meeting, lunch or dinner at the ballpark. Guests will enjoy breathtaking views, step foot onto the field, enter the visitors’ clubhouse and take a peek inside our ballpark museum, the Giant Vault.
How do private events at Oracle Park give people a feel for the Giants?
Whether it is an intimate dinner in the Giants’ clubhouse or a cocktail reception on the field, guests gain exclusive access during private events at the park. It is not every day that you get to walk into the Giants’ clubhouse and get a behind-the-scenes look at where the three-time World Series Champion San Francisco Giants suit up and hang out before hitting the field.
While on the field, guests can enjoy a variety of events—from fantasy batting practices to intimate concerts in the outfield and everything in between. We want our guests to be immersed when they step foot into our venues. One of the premier examples is the ability for a guest to step foot into the same batter’s box as some of Major League Baseball’s best players.
How do private events at your venue give people a feel for the personality and character of your city?
Giants Enterprises takes great pride in providing experiences that help celebrate the rich tradition and history of San Francisco. The city is in one of the most innovative and forward-thinking regions of the world, with the park being at the center of it all. World-renowned events like the Rugby World Cup Sevens and 34th America’s Cup serve as great opportunities to not only show off the park, but allow visitors and tourists to experience the City by the Bay.
