  • Getting there

    Your best bet will be to fly into San Diego International airport. The great news is that a cab ride from the airport to the hotel, where we've secured a special rate for the conference, is only going to run you $25. Check out our sample cost breakdown here for more details.

  • Getting hungry

    Breakfast and dinner are on you, but we’ll provide snacks, lunch and all the coffee / tea / water you can handle. We'll have a location for after the conference coming up shortly. Dinner and drinks are on you as well, and there should be plenty of options.

  • Getting around

    The University is located near the Old Town of San Diego. This is an up-and-coming part of the city that is being revamped with restaurants, attractions, and much more. Most of the events related to uWestFest will be reachable by foot or public transportation.

  • Getting social

    The conference will be off the hook, but frankly, a lot of the magic happens before and after the sessions and full-day schedule. There is a pre-confrence cocktail party that is hosted by our Gold Sponsor - uCommerce - on Thursday evening at the Hilton to kick things off. Don't forget about all cool things you can do while in San Diego (like this guy!).
