AUSTIN, TX

TRAVELING TO AND AROUND #FREECON19

You already know that #FREECON is not your regular conference, we like to combine a little play and adventure into the mix. #FREECON19 promises to deliver in a big way!

#FREECON19 will be spread across four venues, all close in proximity to each other, allowing us to take advantage of what Austin has to offer. One venue does not fit our vision.

Everything will be in and around The Domain area of north Austin. We are working on hotel rates in that area to help those traveling to minimize their need for transportation.

You will fly into Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. We recommend using Uber or Lyft if you’re coming in from out-of-town instead of renting a car. All of the venues have plenty of free parking, and some will be walking distance from the hotels.
