2017 Global Finals
Chapel Hill, NC
April 7-8, 2017
Hosted by:


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.
Many teams report that a house on AirBnB is the best way to go. For hotels, there are lots of 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. We have a block at Marriott Courtyard for $144/night (deadline March 14)  and also at Sheraton for $119 (deadline March 7)
