2016 Global Finals, Chapel Hill, April 7-9, 2016

2016 Global Finals
Chapel Hill, NC
April 8-9, 2016
Hosted by:


The entire event is in the McColl building of UNC Kenan-Flagler. Lots of signs will point you were to go. 300 Kenan Center Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27599
We recommend you rent a car or stay at a hotel with a local shuttle (no shuttle to airport, though). We have plenty of free parking in our business school deck and lots of signs pointing you to the event.
There are many good options nearby at every price point. Chapel Hill is a pretty small town. Anything with a Chapel Hill address (and a shuttle if you don’t rent a car) will be pretty close. There are many  homes available on AirBnB, too. We have reduced rate blocks at Sheraton $114 by March 14 and Aloft $175 by March 14. and Marriott Courtyard $139 by March 16.
