By Air

  • Logan Airport (BOS): Located in Boston. Logan is close to downtown, compared to airports in many other cities. Although there are plenty of taxis, there is easy and FREE access to the Convention Center and associated hotels via public transportation.Look for the Silver Line signs as you exit the airport terminal; the stop is at the right end of each terminal as you leave. The buses are specially designed for travelers with bags and they run every 10-15 minutes.

    They go to South Station, the train and bus terminal, but there are several stops before that, including the Convention Center (the World Trade Center stop). The stops are announced automatically, but if in doubt just ask the driver where get off (to get to your hotel, for example). You can’t miss the Convention Center; it’s very big and obvious. It’s on the opposite side of the station from the water.

  • T.F. Green (PVD):  Located in Warwick, Rhode Island. The airport is nearly 60 miles from the convention center and would require taking additional transportation.
  • Manchester – Boston Regional (MHT): Located in Manchester, New Hampshire. The airport is nearly 55 miles from the convention center and would require taking additional transportation.

By Train

  • Amtrak: Boston South Station (BOS): South Station is the city’s main transportation hub. Amtrak Trains, Commuter Rails, Buses, and Public Transportation options are available at the station, which is barely a mile from the Convention Center. Once you arrive at South Station you can take the Silver Line; follow the signs to the MBTA and take either the SL 1 or SL 2 to the World Trade Center stop. More info on Getting Around Boston
  • Amtrak: Boston North Station (BON): For anyone traveling from New Hampshire or Maine the Amtrak Downeaster is your best bet for getting to the conference.  The station is inside TD Garden (home of the Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins and New England Sports Museum).
