What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Travel either by MARTA or Car/Uber/Lyft.

If travelling via MARTA (coming from East or West), take to 5 Points Station to Red Line. Travel to Sandy Springs Station. Take exit directing to the parking deck. Signs and/or VMware members will guide you to the office. If you accidently exit to the Mt. Vernon Hwy from the MARTA Station no worries! We will have signs and/or VMware members direct you to the office as well.

Uber/Lyft will drop off in front of the office. If travelling with your own car the parking deck entrance for the office is to the right of the building (from Peachtree Dunwoody Rd) or West side (from the MARTA Station/Perimeter Center West). Image below for more details.
