Travel Tips

Getting There and Accommodations

Getting There:

The main Summit conference will be held at the Carter Center in Atlanta. Depending on traffic, the Carter Center is a 25 minute car ride from the Atlanta Airport (a major international hub). For those arriving at ATL, we recommend getting around by cab/ride share or public transportation. Most Summit events will be clustered in one neighborhood, so a rental car is not necessary. For those planning to drive, the Carter Center does offer free parking during the day.

The Carter Center

453 John Lewis Freedom Pkwy NE

Atlanta, GA 30307

Staying There:
A set of discounted rooms at a hotel near the Carter Center is being arranged for Summit registrants. A link to a special reservations page will be sent in your confirmation when you register for the Summit.

Accessibility Information:

The conference venue is fully ADA compliant as is the conference hotel.

Nearby Attractions
Balboa Park
Balboa Park is a beautiful local landmark that is north of the conference area but worth a visit if you have the time! Inside you'll find lush gardens, incredible museums, and many of San Diego's hidden gems.
Petco Park
You may notice a little baseball stadium from the hotel rooftop bar and that would be Petco Park where the San Diego Padres play! Take a moment to walk down and around in the lovely San Diego summer and maybe even catch a game! Petco Park is where the expo for the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering takes place each year!
USS Midway
You may need an uber to get there, but the USS Midway is a decommissioned  aircraft carrier parked on San Diego's water front and now open as a maritime museum and events space! If you're scoping out creative venue ideas, this one is a must see.
