HOTEL SHUTTLE SERVICE
Anytime Transport will provide a van Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning in time for early registration and panels from the DoubleTree Hotel to campus and from campus to the hotel each day at the completion of scheduled activities. Times will be posted in the lobby of the hotel.
You will need a permit to park on campus. Check the box on your registration form, and we will send a permit and campus map to you. A few spaces behind the conference location in the Tom Jackson Building will be reserved for conference participants; however, most will need to park at the Tennessee Livestock Center lot, reached via Greenland Drive. From there, you may ride the Raider Xpress shuttle (free) or walk (about fifteen minutes) to the Tom H. Jackson Building ( JACK on the campus map).
