What to Wear

Fall weather in San Diego is a comfortable low-mid 70s during the day with cooler temperatures in the evenings. While inside the meeting space, you may want to bring a sweater or light jacket as the rooms could be chilly. Most importantly, WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!

COVID-19 Safety and Show Policies

SHRM continues to follow the venue, local and state guidelines to provide a safe environment for all attending. At this time, San Diego does not have a mask mandate nor a proof of vaccine policy.
