Venue and Accommodations


Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel


While the sky-high ceilings and ornate staircases evoke opulence and sophistication, the recently renovated Kimpton Sir Francis Drake is anything but stuffy or old fashioned. Along with the dramatic gilded flourishes and old-world elegance, the lobby bar buzzes with a party atmosphere, creative Italian cuisine is served up at Scala’s Bistro, and there is the sincere service that’s synonymous with a Kimpton stay. In your cozy urban launching pad, you’ll find modern comfort with a classic twist, brimming with Kimpton-style amenities. Kick up your heels and take in the striking views as you rest up for another action-packed day — the hotel is located right in the Union Square city center, so it’s easy to make the most of your San Francisco adventure.



All speakers, sponsors, and delegates are responsible for booking their own travel and accommodation.

A special nightly rate starting at $279 plus tax has been secured at the Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel for conference delegates who book their rooms by August 13, 2021.

Warning for delegates and exhibitors:

** IMPORTANT NOTE: It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting the OLEDs World Summit 2021 regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalize their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty.

These companies DO NOT represent Smithers and SHOULD NOT be given any credit card information.

Should you receive any correspondence from unauthorized organizations regarding accommodation arrangements for OLEDs World Summit, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
