The nearest major metropolitan airport to Ann Arbor is Detroit Metro (DTW).

The conference starts Thursday, June 8th at 9:00am EDT.

We recommend arriving Wednesday night to get settled and spend some time in town before the conference begins. The conference will end with a closing party going well into Friday night, so you may want to stay for some or all of the weekend to maximize your time in Ann Arbor!
