The conference will be held at The United States Patent and Trademark Office's Madison Auditorium at 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, Virginia, just outside the District (but inside the Beltway!)
We recommend the Westin, just a few blocks from the USPTO. We'll be having a Thursday night happy hour at the Westin's Trademark restaurant. Our special rate closed on May 13, but rooms are still available at standard rates. See below for more hotel options.
The DevOpsDays DC team urges you to take Metro to the event. USPTO is located a few blocks from the King Street/Old Town station, which is served by Blue and Yellow line trains. It's also a short ride from National Airport (DCA), our recommended airport for visitors from out of town. If you're arriving at Dulles (IAD), Baltimore (BWI), or Amtrak's Union Station, Metro's trip planner can help you get to the event.
DC and Northern Virginia traffic is consistently rated among the worst in the nation, so we recommend that you do not drive, especially if you are visiting from out of town. If you must drive, please see USPTO's directions page.
