Flights

The best place to fly into is Tampa International Airport. From there, it's a short trip to the hotels in downtown Tampa. 

Transportation

The easiest way to get from the airport to your hotel (and around Tampa) is to call an Uber or Lyft! If you're staying in one of our hotel blocks, we'll have transportation arranged to take you to the ceremony on Saturday evening.
