Getting to the conference
This year's conference will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center, located in Best Friends’ home state of Utah, recently named Fodor’s #1 travel destination for 2016.
Located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City (and just a five-hour drive from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary), the Salt Palace Convention Center is a full-service venue with a full complement of amenities and a long list of fabulous things to see and do within a 25-minute drive.
The convention center is just a quick 10-minute drive west of Salt Lake City International Airport and located just northwest of the I-80/215 interchange. Click here for driving directions. Conference center garage parking information can be found here.
For additional transportation information around downtown and to-from the airport (such as the UTA TRAX light rail), you can visit the center’s transportation information page.
Please note that the convention area is a no-pet zone (exceptions are made for service animals and pre-approved celebrity animals) so your pet won’t be able to join you at the conference. For that reason, we recommend leaving your pet at home.
