The Hamilton Center is located in Campbell, within the world-famous Silicon Valley. Originally constructed for Apple Inc, the building has a beautiful lobby (recently renovated) and scenic walking trails around it. The center provides two meeting rooms, is across the road from a rail link and is close to a Freeway 17 exit. Although not a major hi-tech city like many of its neighbors, Campbell is a suburb of San Jose, which considers itself the capital of Silicon Valley. As everyone knows, Silicon Valley has a large concentration of high-technology engineering, computer and microprocessor companies. Nearby Santa Clara's strength is in the same sector and is home to Intel, Applied Materials, Sun Microsystems, NVIDIA, Agilent Technologies and many other hi-tech companies. Campbell offers the Pruneyard Shopping Center, a sprawling open-air retail complex, and has a mix of businesses to serve this affluent residential community.
