The hotel and conference venue are both https://www.emoryconferencecenter.com/
- Emory Conference Center Hotel
- 1615 Clifton Road NE
- Atlanta, Georgia 30329
- +1 404-712-6000
All attendees will have private rooms. You do not need a confirmation number and can just show your identification to the registration desk. If you run into any issues during check in please ping rfarrand.
The venue provided us with a number of free upgraded rooms and these rooms were randomly distributed to the volunteers attending the event / so do not be surprised if you end up in a fancier room than you were expecting if you are attending in your volunteer capacity! One more way to say thank-you to our volunteer contributors. :)
Transportation to venue
Lyft, Uber, and airport taxi is probably you best bet for getting to from ATL airport to the conference venue. You may want to download a transportation app in advance of your travels. Depending on the time of day for your arrival, your taxi should cost about $15-$30 USD per direction. This is an expense that can be reimbursed after the event by all attendees through an expense report.
Airport Transportation is available from Atlanta Superior Shuttle. Please visit the Atlanta Superior Shuttle website for rate information and reservations. Shuttle service from Airport departs from Ground Transportation Center. http://www.superiorshuttleandlimo.com/hotel-shuttle
