For those coming from out of town, we have structured the events to be at or close to the Palmer House Hotel. A car will be of little use and "in-and-out parking" will be quite expensive (whether at or near the Hotel or at the venues). We have also arranged for a bus for one of our venues.  If you do intend to drive, we encourage to use the Apps:  or and try to find a space by the Hotel where you can Park for the weekend.

If you are arriving by Air, in addition to Shuttle Buses (for a fee), Uber, Lyft and taxies, there is public transportion from both airports that will leave you within two blocks of the hotel.
  • From O'Hare:  You would take the Blue Line, taking approximatley 45 minutes on weekdays and exit at Monroe which would leave you one block east of the hotel. 
  • From Midway, you would take the Orange Line, taking approximately 25 minutes, and exit at  Adams/Wabash which is one block south of the Hotel. Please note: the train makes a complete loop through downtown before your stop.
If you are arriving by Train,  Union Station is 6 blocks west of the hotel.  Exit Adams Street if you are walking or Jackson (it is one way in the right direction) if you are taking a cab or an uber.
