When should I get to Birmingham?
If you are attending our pre-convention event — a trip to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and the 16th Street Baptist Church — it will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, thus arriving sometime on Thursday is ideal. Those close enough to drive to Birmingham may be able to drive in very early on Friday morning, but it is unlikely a flight will land in Birmingham early enough on Friday morning to make it for the trip.
If you are not attending our pre-convention event, being in the hotel and ready for activities by
5 p.m. is the goal. Landing by 3 p.m., to allow for travel from the airport to the hotel, check in
and preparing for the evening, is advisable.
When should my departing flight leave?
The convention closes at lunchtime on Sunday; booking a morning flight out of Birmingham will
result in missing the final day of convention content.
How can I get from the airport to the convention site?
You can get to the hotel from the airport by booking a shuttle service, cabs, or the ridesharing
apps consistently service the Birmingham airport, which is just 5 miles from The Westin
Birmingham. Visit here for more information regarding to ground transportation from the
