The 2014 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing will take place on Wednesday, October 8 through Friday, October 10 in Phoenix, Arizona. We hope to see you all there.
Don’t forget that all registration codes expire on September 19 so make sure to use them as soon as possible.
In the meantime, I’m preparing the trip and setting myself up for an amazing experience. If you are attending this year’s GHC, you are probably going through the same steps: booking your flight, hotel,… Here are some things that might be helpful :
- Recommended shuttles
- Average taxi rate from PHX (30$ to Downtown)
- Taxis are available and waiting at the airport. No advance booking is required, however, be aware of the cost.
- Public Transportation
- There is a Sky Train from Terminal 4 of Sky Harbor Airport that drops you at the Light Rail station (the Sky Train is free to take, and if you don’t land in Terminal 4 there is a free airport shuttle that will take you there). The Light Rail costs $2 for a one-way ride, and it has several stops in Downtown Phoenix, certainly within walking distance of our hotel/the convention center. Here are links with more info: http://skyharbor.com/phxperspective/lightrail.html & http://routes.valleymetro.org/timetables/490/transit_route?type=1
