Networking With Top Executives in Palo Alto, Ca or Other California Cities

I am going to be in Palo Alto, CA from March 21st to March 26th or

27th. I want a list of places to go or events to register for/attend

within Palo Alto or nearby cities (within 3-4 hours driving distance)

where I can:

1. Network with top executives, preferable from Fortune 1000

companies. Even better if execs are from big companies that make

consumer products or products targeted at 18 to 24 year olds. Finding

conferences or events where product development directors/managers/VPs

show up would be great. Second best kind would be marketing innovation

directors/VPs.

2. Meet interesting people who can help me develop sales and

operations on the west coast.

My company provides custom brainstorms done by creative college

students to inspire new concepts within companies. If you need more

specifics, please ask.

I am going to Palo Alto, CA mainly because it is the home of Stanford

University and of IDEO, the leading innovation consulting firm (which

is my industry).

Getting a list of places/events/tentative-schedule would be great!

For example, a place that I am considering going to is the Xerox PARC Forum

Here's a networking event I found (But this is a bad one because it

looks like no Fortune 1000 people go there)

http://www.eastbaytechhub.com/

I've even considered going to job fairs held in colleges in that area

to meet people from Fortune 1000s, but I will probably not see any

important people there. It may be a backup plan, though.
