The O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference will be held in downtown San Diego at the Westin Horton Plaza. Adjacent to the Horton Plaza shopping center and located within walking distance of San Diego's bustling Gaslamp District, the Westin Horton Plaza is at the heart of countless things to see and do.

Horton Plaza

Horton Plaza

The centerpiece of San Diego's revitalized downtown is Horton Plaza, an 11.5-acre multi-level shopping and entertainment complex, with shops, restaurants, three major department stores, a 14-screen cinema, and a performing arts theatre.

If you've forgotten to bring something with you to ETech, chances are you will be able to find it among the many stores at the Horton Plaza. Browse the Horton Plaza Directory to view all available merchants.


Gaslamp District Gaslamp District

Known as the liveliest neighborhood in San Diego, the Gaslamp District has something for everyone, whether you're seeking casual restaurants, theatres, museums, art galleries, upscale shops, or fine dining. The Gaslamp District is also San Diego's hottest entertainment area, featuring more than 70 restaurants and nightclubs within a 16 1/2-block historic area. The Westin Horton Plaza Hotel is adjacent to the Gaslamp District, so the fun and excitement is all within walking (or bike cab) distance.
