Location & Hotel

17335548275_b245784dca_kAn exciting change this year, after many years in Chicago — php[tek] 2016 will take place at a brand new venue, in a new locale!  We are moving the conference to St. Louis, MO to the Sheraton Westport Lakeside Chalet Hotel.

This new venue has a number of amazing benefits for the conference in years to come.  This includes complementary High Speed Internet, an outdoor pool with poolside Tiki Bar, running track and more.  Plus it’s part of the larger Westport Plaza, which features 9 restaurants, 3 bars, playhouse, comedy club, dueling piano bar, and blues club.

17335535185_742b45dd79_kThe hotel is located near the Lambert — St. Louis International Airport.  A free shuttle is provided—simply follow the directions for pick-up at the airport.  If you are interested staying a few extra days and visiting downtown St. Louis during your trip, it’s easily possible by taking the free shuttle to the airport, and then taking the MetroLink light rail system downtown.
