TRAVEL & PARKING

Local attendees may drive to the event location which is easily accessible from Route 90 Exit 173A (from Pennsylvania and points East) or Exit 172A (from Michigan or points West or Columbus and points South). Two airports serve the area – Cleveland Hopkins airport (13 miles) and Canton-Akron airport (50 miles). Rental car facilities are available at either airport. Taxi services are plentiful at the airport to downtown Cleveland for approximately $35 one-way and Uber is another popular option for some travelers.

Secure off-street parking is available behind the hotel for $12/night (normally $18/day).  Attendees who do not stay at the hotel will be charged a flat $18 fee for all-day parking. Alternative parking is available in close proximity to the hotel.

BASEBALL GAME & PICNIC

All registered attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors receive a lower section ticket for the 2016 American League Champion Cleveland Indians against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday night. A classic baseball game picnic is provided from 7:10 PM to 8:00 PM in the Terrace Club at Progressive Field featuring peanuts, popcorn, salad, ballpark hotdogs and grilled chicken breast, mac and cheese, potato salad, coleslaw, nacho bar, and dessert.

A limited number of spouse and guest passes for the baseball game and picnic are available for $65 each on a first-come-first-serve basis until gone (Limit 1 Per Registered Attendee, Exhibitor, or Sponsor). Contact e2b teknologies for the promo code for guest or spouse registration. This ticket does NOT provide admittance to the daily conference, just for the baseball game and picnic in the evening.

Could a healthy pitching staff, the return of Yan Gomes and Michael Brantley, and the addition of slugger Edwin Encarnacion be enough to get the Indians their first World Series championship since 1948? We certainly hope so and things are looking very good for the Tribe after a surprising season in 2016 where no one thought they had a chance only to witness their tremendous will and determination in a heartbreaking loss to the Chicago Cubs in extra innings of Game 7.
