Where can I park?
The Springfield Parking Authority is giving a discounted fee to attendees of $10.00 for the day.

We highly recommend you carpool with a friend or friends and split the parking fee!

Please have your cash or card in hand to expedite the parking process!  Please watch for the parking attendants for directions to available parking.

Conference Parking is available at the following garages: 

Civic Center Garage (across from the MassMutual Center)
Bruce Landon Way (Formally Falcon Way). *** Please note that this garage is in poor repair with only 50 spaces available. These will most likely be filled by volunteers and exhibitors who have to arrive before the conference doors open at 7:30 a.m. for attendees.***

Please go first to South Garage, followed by North Garage and if space is still needed you will be directed to Columbus Garage.

I 91-S Garage – 1620 E Columbus Ave: 450 spaces

I 91-N Garage – 1870 E Columbus Ave: 900 spaces

Columbus Garage – 150 Bridge Street: 200 spaces

As the garages fill, attendees will be directed to the next closest available lot by the Springfield Parking Authority. 

Street parking is limited and on an hourly basis.

Arrive early, park and walk to MassMutual Center (this may give you a faster get-away at the end of the day).
