Directions are a little complex, and if you’re arriving from I-240 West, will take you through the Westgate Shopping Center. But GPS will get you there. And we promise it’ll be worth it.


We’ve got a special, highly-discounted rate ($149) at the Crowne Plaza itself for the night before the conference, Wednesday 10/09. This offer is only valid through 9/8/2019, so get your rooms booked quickly!
