WordCamp DFW 2016
WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress, the free and open source personal publishing software that powers over 75 million sites on the web.
WordCamp DFW will be September 24th at The University of Texas Arlington.
University of Texas at Arlington (UTA)
- E. H. Hereford University Center
- 2nd Floor
- 300 W First St, Arlington,TX 76010
Parking is FREE in the College Park South lot (near the College Park Center building). If that lot is full, find an overflow parking space in a faculty/staff lot nearby. Parking elsewhere on campus may result in your car being towed, so choose wisely and look for signs!
There’s a lot of great things about Texas, but convenient public transit isn’t one of them. Both Lyft and Uber are available or, if you’re flying in, you can easily grab a rental car.
UTA is located within a couple of miles of the famous Dallas Cowboy’s Stadium, the Ballpark in Arlington (home of the Texas Rangers) and Six Flags. That said, there are TONS of hotels around. You can also use airbnb.com or vrbo.com, if that’s your thing.
Here’s a handful of hotels within 5 miles of the UTA at a variety of price points. Please note that we have no arrangements with these hotels – we’re just providing these suggestions as a starting point:
- Americas Best Value Inn – $75.00/night
- Courtyard Dallas Arlington South – $110.00/night
- Sheraton Arlington – $169.00/night
- Courtyard Dallas Arlington/Entertainment District – $179/night
- Hilton Garden Inn – $194/night
- Crowne Plaza Suites Arlington Ballpark/Stadium – $220.00/night
Inevitably, after WordCamp comes to an end you might feel a pang, but it’s not hunger (maybe it is…) But have no fear, your WordCamp experience doesn’t have to end with the closing remarks! THERE IS AN AFTER PARTY!!!
