Logistics  and Transportation for Startup Virginia on January 31st

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. We have a fantastic morning lined up! We are expecting 450 attendees and with that in mind, we wanted to share a couple notes on transportation and logistics for the event:

Our event is being held in Founder's Hall, which can be accessed on Fairfax Drive.

The event starts at 7:30 with networking, coffee and pasteries and the formal part of our programming will start around 8am.

Please come to the registration table to check in and get your name badge.

Please plan to come on time. Seating in the theater is first come, first served and seating in the theater is limited to 300. We have auxillary seating where the event will be streamed lived to accomodate the overflow.

There is only a small, self-service coat room available. If you wear a coat, please consider leaving it in your car or brining it to your seat.

Startups: we will have onsite registration for Startup America Partnership. You can also register your company in advance online: http://www.startupamericapartnership.org/register/your-profile

Please help us get the word out via Twitter - @Startup_VA and #StartupVa

We encourage attendees to take the Metro if you can. 

Take the Orange Line to the Virginia Square/GMU station.  Take the escalator to the street level, and turn to face Fairfax Drive.  Across the street and to the right, you will see the FDIC building.  The Arlington Campus is next door.

If you drive:

There is ample parking at George Mason University's Arlington campus, however with the number of people attending our event, we have been asked to inform you that there will likely be a wait to get out of the parking lot, as most attendees will be trying to exit the parking lot at the same time.

The parking garage entrance is located on Kirkwood Drive. Please note that the parking garage is paid and accepts Visa and Mastercard as payment forms. Payment is by the hour and you can expect to pay up to $9.00 (the three hour fee).

Driving directions can be found below or on George Mason's Website.

Thank you for joining us. We're looking forward to a great event!
