For the world traveler, Pier 27 and Pier 35 are cruise terminals. For the facilitators of commerce, Pier 29 is a warehouse. For the savvy event planner, these spaces are blank canvases ready for the imagination.

Beyond San Francisco

Metro Events is sending teams across the country to discover more venues to add to our distinguished portfolio of event spaces.

To meet our requirements—and the requirements of our clients—the spaces must have what we consider the basics: the flexibility to accommodate 10 people or thousands; customizable spaces that can be configured to clients’ unique goals and vision; an ideal location, with plenty to see and do just steps from the venue doors.

To be a Metro Events space, the venue must also have something special: a finger on the pulse of the neighborhood; an architectural or visual presence; a focus on sustainability; a vibe that grabs the attention and feeds the imagination.

Stay tuned for more Metro Events spaces available soon.

Our Team

Vivian Perez

Sales and Marketing Manager

Vivian started her career at the University of Kentucky, where she helped execute concerts for the Jazz Department. That led her to managing the marketing and operations of several unique venues, including the student union at Florida International University, as well as the Bently Reserve and the Hibernia in San Francisco. She really enjoys planning out-of-the-box events, as well as connecting clients to the amazing array of Bay area event vendors.

Favorite Metro Event: I loved the Wedding Showcase, because it showed all the amazing possible ways that clients can use our spaces for their special day. There is just no other venue collection in San Francisco with these amazing views and different styles, whether you prefer modern, industrial or vintage.

When not at the piers, you can find Vivian…curled up to a good book, hanging out with her family, or enjoying one of San Francisco’s many excellent restaurants. She loves the Bay area food scene, and really gets a kick out of making a dining recommendation to anyone who needs one.

Michael San Gaspar

Venue Logistics Lead

Michael started his career in the Bay Area, managing operations at a San Francisco International Airport restaurant. From there, he dove headfirst into event consulting and operations management, working for Off the Grid, Pure Partner by Design, Bond Events, Britany Barr Consulting, and Metro Events. Michael has managed big and small events for Fortune 500 companies and those in the pharmaceutical, tech, biotech, and non-profit sectors. He has also overseen countless celebrations ranging from holiday parties and weddings to Mitzvahs. At Metro Events, he focuses on operations and logistics to create exemplary experiences for corporate and individual clients.

What I enjoy most at Metro Events are the large multi-day conferences and meetings: seeing the build-out process, watching experiential components for the event activated, working with clients and vendors, and finding creative solutions to ensure these events are a big success.

When not at the piers, you can find Michael entertaining at home and mastering new recipes to share with family and friends. He has a passion for travel and loves discovering new restaurants, wineries, and experiences in Napa, Paso Robles, and Sonoma county’s Wine Country.
