Travel & lodging
The Philadelphia metropolitan area is easily accessible via airplane, train or bus. Learn more about your options for traveling to Philadelphia below.
The Philadelphia International Airport services the Philadelphia area and is just seven miles from Center City. There are several options to get you from the airport to the conference hotel.
SEPTA’s Regional Rail system provides trains to Center City Philadelphia which depart from Philadelphia International Airport. If interested to take the Regional Rail service into Center City Philadelphia, take the regional rail to SEPTA's Jefferson Station stop, located on Market St. between 10th & 12th Sts. The conference hotel, however, is not within walking distance from this train station. We suggest a taxi or rideshare the rest of the way to the hotel.
Philadelphia taxis charge a flat rate of $28.50, plus $1 per passenger (max $3) for travel between Center City and the airport.
Buses run to Philadelphia’s Greyhound Station. Please visit Greyhound's website for schedules into the Philadelphia’s Greyhound Bus Station located at 1001 Filbert Street in downtown Philadelphia. We recommend a taxi or rideshare from Philadelphia’s Greyhound Station to the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing.
By car, Philadelphia is just two hours from New York City, 90 minutes from Baltimore, three hours from Washington D.C. and about an hour from Lancaster County, Atlantic City and the New Jersey shore via major highways. For individuals who travel to the conference by car, the conference will be held at Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing located at 201 S Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia PA 19106.
