Travel & Accommodations



Air Travel

Bloomington is located in the Midwestern US, near Indianapolis, IN. We recommend booking your flights to arrive at Indianapolis International Airport (code: IND). Shuttles, limousines, or cars can be rented at the Indianapolis airport to travel to the conference hotel.

Note: Transportation between Indianapolis International Airport and the IMU Biddle Hotel and Conference Center is NOT included in your conference registration. The cheapest way to travel to Bloomington from the airport is to reserve a seat on the Go Express shuttle ($36 round trip purchased online in advance) between the Indianapolis airport and the IMU Biddle Hotel and Conference Center.

Travel time between the airport and Bloomington is approximately 45 to 60 minutes but currently construction on State Road 37 between Bloomington and Indianapolis can cause unpredictable delays in the schedule. Please give yourself plenty of time before your flight and plan accordingly.
