Note: Free parking will be available for attendees and guests at Riverfront Banquet/Conference Center Parking Ramp for the duration of the conference. The ramp entrance is located in the front of the building, off Saginaw Street and W. Union Street. After you enter the parking structure, take the elevator or stairs to the ground floor. The entry point to the elevator or stairs is located on the second floor of the structure. Note: You will NOT be able to enter the building through the housing skywalk, as this is reserved for residence hall students. After you come down to the ground floor, walk across W. Union Street and enter the Banquet/Conference Center to the left of the building. The building address to Riverfront Banquet Center is 1 Riverfront Plaza, Flint, MI 48502.

For those who have limited mobility AND are staying in Riverfront dorm lodging, you will be able to use the elevator to access the conference sessions taking place in the School of Management rooms on the second floor with your room swipe card. To enable this, when you check in, let Riverfront staff know you need second-floor access with your room card. If you are mobility impaired and are NOT staying in Riverfront, send your name and request to Cindy MacDonald,, as Riverfront staff will create a special swipe card for you.
