Parking, Travel, and accommodations
If you park at the LA Convention Center, their parking rates have significantly increased from past years. They are advising us that parking will be $25 per day over our event weekend. We would recommend South Hall if you are parking at the Convention Center. Credit card purchases are available.
There are plenty of other parking structures around the Convention Center and L.A. Live area which generally run between $10-$20 per day, cash only. Here’s a map.
Air travelers can fly into either Burbank (BUR) or Los Angeles International (LAX). We then suggest you take transit to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and make transfers there as you need, or take a taxicab or Uber straight to your hotel or the convention center.
Transit from BUR to downtown LA can be done by taxicab for about $38 each way or by MetroLink for $6.50 each way. The link for MetroLink schedules is here: http://www.bobhopeairport.com/traintoplaneschedule
Transit from LAX to the downtown LA area can be done by taxicab for a flat rate of $46.50 each way or by taking the Flyaway shuttle to Union Station for $7 each way. The link for the FlyAway bus is: http://www.lawa.org/welcome_lax.aspx?id=292
The JW Marriott is the closest hotel to the convention center. Recent competitors have also enjoyed a more reasonable nightly rate at the Omni Hotel, although it is not walking distance to the venue.
