The conference hotels and the convention center are in the downtown area. A cab from the airport costs approximately $20. The conference hotels are between two and five minutes walk from the convention center. The downtown is fairly compact and you will not need a car to get around.
Official Conference Airlines
 
The official conference airline, Alaska Airlines, will offer discounted tickets between April 30, 2010 and May 11, 2010. The discount code and instructions are available here.
Car Rental
 
Avis Car Rentals, Inc. has made the conference attendees an offer for a discount code. Simply call Avis reservations 1-800-331-1212 and tell them you want a reservation using worldwide discount code (AWD#) B805900, or use the Avis web page and that code.  That  code will get cars at rates starting at $29 per day (full size cars at $39/day) plus tax/fees. Rates are guaranteed... even last minute shoppers get these rates.
 
This code may be used AS LONG AS THEY HAVE CARS until May 12. If you are not going to use a car until after the conference, they suggest you pick up your car from the Avis downtown office rather than going back out to the airport.
 
This rental car offer is totally between you and Avis. The conference is not involved except to make you aware of this option.
