As a result of participant feedback, we have moved the conference the lively town of Decatur. Decatur is located 6 miles east of downtown Atlanta and 16 miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. There are dozens of shops and restaurants within walking distance of the conference hotel and we will give you time to enjoy them. For more information, check out this Decatur Guide (Word document) created by STP member and Atlanta resident Drew Appleby. You can also visit the official website of the City of Decatur.
The conference will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Decatur, located at 130 Clairemont Avenue in Decatur.
As of 8/11/16, the conference is sold out of sleeping rooms. If you need overnight accommodations, we recommend that you stay at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Atlanta - Emory University Area, located approximately one mile from the conference hotel. We will provide a shuttle between these two hotels at the beginning and end of each conference day.Directions to the Conference Hotel:
By plane: From Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, we recommend that you take a shared shuttle such as A & M Limousine Corp. If you will be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott, you can also take the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) train to the Decatur rail station. Here are the directions from the Decatur rail station to the Courtyard by Marriott:
Turn left on Church Street. Turn left on Ponce De Leon Avenue and then right on Clairemont Avenue. The hotel will be on your left side.
