Chicago Airports

Both O'Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway International Airport (MDW) offer convenient access to downtown Chicago. From O'Hare, a trip to the Conference venues will take about 50 minutes on the CTA Blue Line. From Midway, a trip to the Conference venues on the CTA Orange Line will take about 40 minutes. A cab will take about the same amount of time as the train, but could take longer depending on traffic.

Public Transit

All Conference venues and the Conference hotel will be within walking distance of one another, not more than a handful of blocks apart. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is the most convenient way to get to and from the airports and around town. If you'd like to rent a bike, considering using Chicago's Divvy bikeshare service.
