Travel / Venue
The meeting venue is the newly completed UNLV Student Union on the eastern edge of campus. The second floor of the building houses a modern conference facility, including a large exhibit hall. A food court and coffee shop are also housed in the building, and numerous lunchtime restaurants are a short walk off campus. The meeting is timed to coincide with UNLV’s spring break, so ample parking will be available on campus.
