2021 Annual Conference Location

South Bend, Indiana, is a welcoming and relaxed Midwest town that can't wait to show you a good time. Home to Notre Dame University, the area also has a wide variety of activities, including tons of outdoor activities, exceptional arts and entertainment, a delicious food and craft beer scene, fun activities for the entire family, and plenty of shopping options.

The conference will be held at the waterfront Century Center in downtown South Bend. A beautiful, state-of-the-art facility has plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable for all of our sessions - we think you'll be impressed! The area surrounding the Century Center has all kinds of local entertainment: restaurants, pubs, hotels, museums, a zoo, and Four Winds Field, home of the South Bend Cubs, the single-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. If you want to venture further out of town, South Bend is less than an hour's drive from both the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan and the incredible Shipshewana area; less than two hours from all that Chicago has to offer, and about two and a half hours from Indianapolis.

South Bend is served by the South Bend International Airport (SBN), which provides non-stop service to 13 cities on four airlines. Learn more here. The airport is a quick 10 minute drive from the downtown Century Center and hotels.
