Durham Convention Center
301 W Morgan St, Durham, NC 27701

Welcome to Durham!

This year's venue is the Durham Convention Center! Located just 20 minutes from Raleigh-Durham International Airport, the Durham Convention Center provides the perfect setting.

Due to the combination of a Duke home football game on October 14 and another tech conference right after ours, hotel space will be extremely limited in 2023.
