Poster presenter instructions


The available days under the APV housing block are Monday, October 24 through Saturday, October 29. If you are attending AALAS and want to stay in the Westin, you will need to book thru the AALAS housing site once it opens in a few weeks. We will work with the Westin hotel after housing closes for both groups to identify those attending both so they can stay in the same hotel room. However, the invoice will have 2 separate hotel rates.

Book housing here.


There is a $25 flat fare from Charlotte Douglas International to any destination in Center City. Base charge covers up to 2 people; $2 for each additional person. Rates to other areas of town are metered at $2.50 for passenger pick up and $.50 for each 1/5th of a mile. Call Yellow Cab at 704-444-4444 to schedule service or any group-related services.

Public Transportation
The Charlotte Area Transit System, known as CATS, operates the Sprinter Bus that runs every 20 minutes from the airport to Center City. The bus stops are located near the Doubletree Gateway Village, Marriott City Center, Omni, Ritz-Carlton, and aloft Uptown. The Sprinter Bus is designed to accommodate luggage and is a hybrid, offering a green solution. Cost is $2.20 for a one-way trip.
