"San Francisco was the natural choice for Slack’s annual Frontiers user conference. Slack was born and bred in the City, and built its HQ here. What better place than Pier 27, set on the Bay with views of the Bay Bridge and iconic Pyramid and Coit Tower in the background. The Exploratorium is walking or pedicab distance away - a great interactive space for a special party. Finding local artists, musicians and craftspeople for entertainment and activations is simple in a city teeming with possibilities."
