Transportation to Lincoln
The conference is expected to begin at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, January 31 (with on-site check-in starting at 1 p.m.) and it will end by 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 2. You should make your travel plans in such a way that you can be here for the entire conference. If you are flying into Lincoln, then you will be taking the Embassy Suites shuttle to the hotel from the airport so you can drop off your luggage before the conference starts and check-in at registration. We expect the hotel shuttles will be waiting at the airport for each flight. If the shuttle is not there, the Embassy Suites has a courtesy phone by the baggage claim area that you can use to call to request a shuttle.
Flights into Lincoln, Neb., are available from United (via Chicago or Denver) and Delta (via Minneapolis or Atlanta).
There are also many flights available in and out of Omaha (occasionally you can find flights into Omaha which are significantly less expensive than flights into Lincoln). There are shuttle services that will transport you from Omaha Eppley Airport to the Embassy Suites Lincoln: Leisure Limousine and OmaLink. The cost of a roundtrip can vary, but be prepared to pay $170 for a roundtrip. You may also rent a car for the weekend. While you are required to cover the expense at the time of the conference, you may request travel assistance.
If you're driving, Lincoln is right off Interstate 80.
