The 2017 BioLogos Conference will be held at the Norris Conference Center, which, along with a number of shops and restaurants, is located in the beautifully vibrant CityCentre complex in Houston, Texas. (Click here for a map and directions.) Average high temperatures in Houston during late-March are in the mid-70s.
The Norris Conference Center is roughly equidistant to either George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) or the smaller William P. Hobby Airport (HOU). Drive time from either airport to CityCentre averages 30-45 minutes—though it may exceed an hour in peak traffic. Cab fare estimates range from $65-$80 (or $30-45 for Uber), with fares from HOU likely to be slightly lower than fares from IAH. Remember to avoid rush hour times if possible to get the most economical rates and to save time.
Free parking is provided by the Norris Conference Center.
BioLogos has arranged for reduced conference rates at two local CityCentre hotels: the Four Points by Sheraton and the Hotel Sorella. Each hotel includes complimentary WiFi, local (5-mile radius) shuttle service, a fitness center, business center, small outdoor pool, and on-site dining. Differences include:
