The primary parking lot for the conference is lot 27-S, located on McCoy Street and accessible from Cleveland Avenue traveling South from I-670 towards the Workforce Development building.

The primary lot will likely fill up and so we have blocked off space on two separate overflow lots (see map):

  1. Lot 28-S, which is located on Mt. Vernon Avenue between 5th and Neilston streets.
  2. Lot 32-S, which is located on Jefferson Avenue between Long and Spring streets.

Because we know the weather will be cold and possibly wet, we will have shuttles running from the overflow lots to the conference during the early morning, during lunch, and after the conference is over.

There are many area hotels to choose from, but QA or the Highway recommends the Drury Inn & Suites, at 88 East Nationwide Boulevard, Columbus, OH 43215.  Many out of towners have stayed here in the past and plan on staying here again.
