Venue & Local Attractions


The conference will be held in downtown Buffalo at the University at Buffalo’s Educational Opportunity Center, 555 Ellicott Street, Buffalo, NY conveniently located near the downtown theater district, local restaurants, and the Buffalo waterfront.

Access from/to Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF)

Metro Bus service is the least expensive way. “Genesee & Michigan” is the closest stop to the conference venue (10 min walk) and Wyndham Garden Buffalo Downtown hotel (15 min walk).

Taxi and Uber are always easier (but more expensive). Taxi fare to the hotel would be about $40 one way. There is also Airport Taxi Downtown shuttle $21/person.

Access from/to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)

There are some bus and shuttle services. Niagara Airbus is the fastest but most expensive. If you are traveling from/to Downtown Toronto, megabus is the best option.
