What airport should I fly into?

The nearest airport is Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).  

How far is the airport from the Conference Location?

The PAID TO SPEAK BOOT CAMP Conference is hosted at the DREAM-to-DO Studio which is located at Kent and Kathy Julian's home - 3394 Willow Glen Trail, Suwanee, GA. Their home is approximately a 45-minute drive from the Atlanta Airport. (NOTE: Rush hour traffic can increase driving time.)

What time should I book my flight to arrive at the airport?

Since the conference begins at 8:00 AM, you likely want to arrive the day before if you are flying.  

When should I book my flight to depart?

The conference ends on Friday at 6 PM and there is a reception immediately following the end of the conference. Since you need to plan for at least 3 hours on a Friday evening to get to the airport and check-in, you best option is to fly out Saturday morning.
