Parking Instructions & Directions

We will start our day in the Champlain Room of the Communication and Creative Media Center on the campus of Champlain College. The address for the building is 375 Maple Street in Burlington.

If you plan on being dropped off at the conference center by someone, click here for directions to the building itself.
Where to Park
If you are driving, there is limited parking available on the streets, however please be aware some areas are restricted to resident parking only.  We highly recommend, instead, you take advantage of a FREE parking opportunity:
Champlain College FREE Parking Lot  at 175 Lakeside Avenue
The college offers this free parking area with complimentary shuttle service directly to the conference center. The parking lot is at 175 Lakeside Ave (off Pine Street, near Cumberland Farms). Complimentary shuttles will provide service continuously from 7 am to 6 pm between the parking lot and the main door of the conference center.  This is a FREE option and it brings you right to the conference center door so there is no need to walk up any hills!
 Please note: There is ongoing paving construction happening on Pine Street. Please allow enough time for slower traffic on this road, so you can arrive with enough time to take the shuttle.
Campus Map
If you would like to see the campus layout, click here. Registration will be just outside the Champlain Room in the Communication and Creative Media Center, the building that is circled on the map. After you register, take in the breathtaking views of Lake Champlain from the room while you visit our exhibitor tables, network and get ready for our big day.
