Parking at Montreat Conference Center is limited for a conference of this size. On location we have about 345 parking spaces for 1,400 attendees. We will be securing other locations to park at with shuttles to pick people up and bring them to the conference center. We will share those locations as soon as we have them. We would recommend carpooling and ride sharing (Lyft) if possible! All in all, we look to have about 500 parking spaces in total which should cover us for our time together. If you are in need of assistance, and need to park close, we will have spaces reserved for you near Anderson Auditorium. See below for a detailed Montreat Parking Map.
