Saturday we’re still at the League! If you were with us Friday, most of this is old news.

Michigan League (Friday & Saturday Conference Site)

Michigan League (Friday & Saturday Conference Site)

Check-in begins at 8am in the Michigan League lobby located at the main entrance on the west side of the building, where the fountain is (pictured here). If you are dropped off by car, you’ll likely enter the south entrance off of N. University. Follow the signs pointing toward the check-in area.


Continental breakfast runs from 8am-9am on the second floor Concourse. The Concourse also hosts our exhibitors area until 2pm.


Use the hashtag #iwac16 during the conference.


In addition to being in rooms in the Michigan League, conference sessions take place in the adjacent University of Michigan Alumni Center. To reach the Alumni Center exit the north side of the League and cross the courtyard. Signs will be in place to guide you.

Saturday’s lunch and Plenary Session are held in the Ballroom on the second floor of the League. If you are dining out, you might want to walk west from the League down N. University, towards the State St./E. Liberty area. Check our Ann Arbor Guide for a few recommendations.


If you are looking to burn off lunch and have more time in Ann Arbor, consider a walk through the Nichol’s Arboretum (“The Arb”) down to the Huron River. The walk is about a mile to the Arb entrance and temps are expected in the high 80s, so plan accordingly. Arbor Bike rental is also an option for exploring campus with the wind in your hair.

Summerfest continues starting at 5pm on the acoustic stage, with louder bands taking over at 7pm. Local favorites The Third Coast Kings play at 10:15pm. If you’re still awake, you won’t be disappointed!

state-theaterIf you are headed downtown to explore some more, again, a good course of action is to start at the intersection of State St./E. Liberty, marked by the State Theatre marquee, and make your way down E. Liberty towards Main St. Most shops and restaurants are on or a few blocks off of E. Liberty. Main St. is densely packed with bars, restaurants, and shopping.

We hope you enjoy this last day of the conference. We wish you a pleasant journey home, and we invite you to come back to Ann Arbor soon!
