We recommend arriving Sunday afternoon for our attendee welcome reception at the Carolina Inn and planning to depart Wednesday morning. In addition, there are optional Fireside Chats on Monday and Tuesday evenings that give attendees a chance to connect outside of the conference programming. Take these into consideration if you’d like to participate in them! Chapel Hill is beautiful in the spring and fall, so we do have many attendees who come a day or two early to explore the area. You can download our list of Things to Do in Chapel Hill, Places to Eat in Chapel Hill, and Places to Visit in Raleigh and Durham.
