Location

Details coming soon! I hear it'll be somewhat near the waterfront (doesn't that narrow it down).

Airport

Seatac is the international airport that you'll likely be using if you're coming from afar. Domestically, it is a hub for Alaska and Delta, and internationally there is regular service to Western Europe and Asia.

The airport code for flight booking is 'SEA'

Taxis from the Airport into Seattle can be ~$60, and ride services (uber, lyft, etc.) are not currently allowed to pick up passengers at the airport. Driving will take ~25-30 minutes to downtown except for at rush-hour when it will take longer.

The Link Light Rail runs every 5-10 minutes from the airport to downtown at a cost of $3 taking you to walking distance from the event venue. The train will take ~45 minutes to downtown, and runs from 5am until midnight.

Lodging

We're looking into getting a room block now. Stay tuned!

If you need funding for travel, be sure to get a stipend amount pre-approved.
