SanTan Elegante Conference Center
Southwest Fox is held at the SanTan Elegante Conference & Reception Center in Gilbert, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. The official conference hotel is the DoubleTree by Hilton. The hotel is just 30 minutes from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
You should arrive in Phoenix on Wednesday if you plan to attend any pre-conference sessions on Thursday. Otherwise, plan to arrive in time for the keynote at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport offers a variety of transportation options. All rental cars and rental car counters are located at the easily accessible Rental Car Center. You can take a taxi, limousine, or van from the airport to the hotel.
The Southwest Fox Transportation page on the Visual FoxPro Wiki can help you coordinate transportation so you can find someone to share a cab or limo with.
Comfortable town cars are the most economic way if you have more than one person: one or two people is $50 and you can have up to four people in a car for $60 direct to the hotel, and the same back to the airport (note: rates may be subject to change; contact T&T for the current rate). Call to set up a reservation. They track the planes so if your flight is running late they adjust.
They are also available to take people to restaurants or other venues in the evenings (the conference center has a shuttle bus for this, but it only runs until 10:00 p.m.). They have a set of vans, town cars, and Suburbans to get people out and about. Typically it runs about $2.00 a mile.

You can register on the SuperShuttle site (http://www.supershuttle.com), call to make a reservation, call when you arrive, or see the shuttle coordinator. You might get a direct route or you may stop several times depending on the other riders. Cost is $34.00 each way (note: rate may be subject to change; contact SuperShuttle for the current rate).
