IB Workshops Travel Information
Your participation, all week, in every session is vital. Be advised that attendees must participate in all class sessions to receive their official IB certificate of attendance.
To ensure your full participation at the workshop from start to finish and ample travel time to and within Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, do not choose a flight departing Atlanta before 4:00 pm.
If you have not visited Atlanta before, our airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International, is the world's busiest! There are multiple terminals connected by a very efficient train. The airport is very large and spread out so you must allow enough time, once you get there, to deal with your luggage, make your way through security screening, get to your terminal on the passenger train, and then still reach your gate at the terminal.
Please be aware that Atlanta is largely not a pedestrian-friendly city. Our workshop venue is not easily accessible by public transportation or on foot. We strongly recommend renting a car for all your conference and leisure transportation needs during your visit.
If you have a car and plan to drive to our event site, North Atlanta High School, there is a multi-level parking structure with over 900 free spaces at your disposal.
CASIE has negotiated a discounted car rental rate with Enterprise Rent-A-Car/National Car Rental. To obtain this discount, click HERE and use group code XZ03314 when making your reservation.
Our public transportation system, MARTA, does not extend out to where our event and partner hotel is located and should not be counted on to provide your only means of transportation during your visit.
A courtesy shuttle will be available for participants to & from the conference site and ONLY our participating hotel partner (listed below) each day.
Taxis, Uber, and Lyft are plentiful and well-priced for travel all over Metro Atlanta.
CASIE has high standards for how we want our guests to be treated while at our workshop! To this end, we work very closely with outstanding area hotels to secure great prices for our event attendees. These hotels will be serviced by our courtesy shuttles for trips to and from our event venue.
The hotel WILL fill up and run out of space. Don’t delay in securing your accommodations!
