We will be in Ballroom A in the East Concourse of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It can be accessed on the northeast corner of 12th and Arch St. From that entrance, take the escalator to the second floor. Turn right at the top of the escalator and walk down the hall until you reach the Grand Hall. There will be an escalator leading up to Ballroom A in the Grand Hall. There will be signs leading you to the Ballroom.

For those arriving via SEPTA Regional Rail, get off at Market East Station. Take the escalator up to the gallery, and turn right. Walk until you come upon another staircase. Take this to the second floor, where you will find the Grand Hall of the Convention Center. From here, just take the escalator or walk up the stair case on the opposite side of the Grand Hall to reach Ballroom A.

If you are coming via the subway, get off at 11th street, and take the exit that leads toward the Gallery, not those that lead outside. There should be a Cinnabon on your left when you emerge from the subway area; turn left at the Cinnabon. Follow the hall until you come upon a staircase. Take this up to the Grand Hall on the second floor of the Convention Center. From here, take the escalator or walk up the stair case on the opposite side of the Grand Hall to reach Ballroom A.
