IASPM-US 2013 Conference Logistics: Austin, TX

Event Locations: As you prepare to visit Austin, TX, for the 2013 IASPM-US Conference, below is a map with relevant locations. For more information or directions, simply click on the pins. The Welcome Event will be at the Dive Bar, the conference hotel is the Doubletree Suites, Friday and Saturday panels are at the Thompson Conference Center, and Sunday Panels are at the Music Recital Hall.

Airport: To travel to and from the airport, in addition to traditional taxis or rental cars, you may book with the Super Shuttle service or use the Cap Metro bus service, which costs only $1 from the airport to Downtown. The bus runs on the hour and half hour, and a brochure with more information is available here. For access to the Doubletree (which is on 15th St), one should probably use the 12th/Trinity stop. The 23rd/Robert Dedman stop will bring you closest to the Thompson Conference Center.

Shuttle: Once in Austin, there is a campus shuttle that can take attendees part of the way to the Thompson Conference Center: the hotel is on 15th, campus starts at 19th (renamed MLK), and the shuttle pick-up is on 21st Street. There are two routes that can work, Forty Acres and Lake Austin.

Route: 40 Acres, walk from hotel to a stop on 21st Street, Drops off right in front of both the Conference Center and the Music Building. This is a free shuttle (even though the Web site claims it is only free for UT affiliates).

Route: Lake Austin (might be asked for a fare on this one) Lavaca/15th pick-up, and Guadalupe/15th drop-off. San Jacinto and 21st stop is the closest to the conference center.
