The most convenient airport to use to arrive in New Orleans is the Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY). The airport is only 3 miles from Embassy Suites and is a 10 or 15 minute ride by taxi, shuttle, or Uber. A taxi will cost from 24$ to 36$. Sharing with 1 or 2 other people will reduce the per person charges. For detailed transportation options, you can follow this link to the airport transportation page:
Embassy Suites serves complimentary breakfast and also holds a complimentary reception each evening that includes food, snacks, and drinks. We will provide coffee and snacks during periodic breaks and will be on our own for lunch on Monday.
By holding this meeting in conjunction with the ID&R Forum, we will save thousands of dollars in airfare as many of our TST members will be able to attend two events in one trip. On Tuesday morning, we will wrap up at 11:30 am so that our members have time to make their way down to the Hilton, check in, have some food, and get ready to join the kick off of this year's ID&R Forum. We will closely communicate as a group to be sure that our wrap up and transport down to the Hilton is convenient and with sufficient time.
Travel request and draft meeting agenda
This will be our final meeting for project year 2. There will be many exciting highlights and accomplishments to reflect on so we are urgently looking forward to seeing everyone in "The Big Easy".
