Since the Hilton Downtown/Lexington Hotel is fully booked on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20...

We have also heard the Hyatt Regency and Springhill Suites by Marriott—the two closest hotels—are also fully booked on these nights. This is most likely due to Keeneland Race Course’s live race meet being in session and a home University of Kentucky football game that Saturday. For a list of alternate accommodations near downtown for that Friday and Saturday, visit We advise you to stay at the alternate location for the first two nights and then relocate to the Hilton Downtown/Lexington Hotel for the rest of the conference for greater accessibility.
The local organizing committee will not be responsible for shuttling attendees to and from the airport and/or other hotels.
