Neighborhood Partners Program

Running a small business in San Francisco can be challenging.  We know, and we're here to help.

We're currently accepting applications for our group of 2014-2016 Neighborhood Partners. Feel free to fill out the form below if you're interested in applying and we'll be in touch (if you'd like to nominate a business that's not yours, click here). We will not use your contact information for any other purpose or share it without your consent.  The 2014-2016 Neighborhood Partners will be announced at our Annual Luncheon on June 19, 2014 (business who are selected will receive one complimentary admission).

Who can participate:
 Anyone!  From restaurants to boutiques, coffee shops to art galleries. To be considered, businesses must be located in San Francisco and cannot currently be a San Francisco Travel Partner.  For a list of previous Neighborhood Partners, click here.

“I would be hard pressed to think of a better investment in my business than membership at this 100-year-old organization!”
Rodrigo Enriquez, President, Extranomical Adventures, Inc.

"As a small business with a small budget, the opportunity to be represented on the international stage is invaluable. So too, is the networking within the industry. San Francisco is being highlighted now more than ever, thanks to the Giants and America's Cup, and it's important to stay connected to the efforts of San Francisco Travel."
Lisa Koester, CMP, Director of Sales, Napa River Inn

“As a nonprofit marine nature center affiliated with The Bay Institute, Aquarium of the Bay is proud to be a member of San Francisco Travel, an organization which not only does an incredible job in attracting tourists to our city, but also is very effective in celebrating and promoting San Francisco as a green destination.

They consistently provide us with qualified leads, offer unique promotional opportunities, and provide the best value for our print and online advertising campaigns."
