What to bring for the event

Google I/O is an outdoor festival. While this is a big part of what makes I/O special, it also means there are some things to consider. Sessions will happen inside climate-controlled tents, but sunscreen, sunglasses, and an extra layer for the evening are recommended. I/O is a casual event, so keep this in mind when deciding what to wear.


We have room blocks at many local hotels. The list of hotels and room availability will be updated regularly. Please use the map below to find the hotel that’s best for you.
