5404 Wisconsin Ave
Chevy Chase, MD 20815
Parking is available in the Bloomingdales lot behind the Microsoft office. The entrance is on Friendship Boulevard. There will be a charge to park in this lot as unfortunately our budget did not allow us to cover parking. There is also street parking available, however it is limited to 2 hours and might not be realistic to use for an all day event. Last, DO NOT PARK IN THE GEICO LOT BEHIND THE BUILDING – YOU WILL BE TOWED. Additionally, there is a metro stop that is right next to the office if you have the the time to take the metro.

The Friendship Heights train station is right next to the Microsoft office, however, depending on where you are staying, it may require multiple transfers to be of use.
Transportation – Airports & Trains
There are three airports that serve the Washington D.C. area, including:
DCA is the closest airport to the venue. IAD and BWI are approximately 40-60 minutes by car (without traffic). Transportation from IAD will require a taxi, Lyft, Uber or car rental (no public transit is available). BWI does connect via a multiple series of trains, however, it will take a few hours in each direction to get to the venue.
If you are traveling along the East Coast via Amtrak, your destination will be Washington D.C.’s Union Station. After arrival, you can then choose to walk/take multiple trains to get to the venue, or more easily, take a taxi, Uber or Lyft to arrive.
