The two best options for traveling to Portland, Maine from abroad include flying to the Portland International Jetport (PWM), or flying to Logan Airport (BOS) in Boston, Massachusetts and traveling by bus from Logan Airport to Portland. Concord Coach Lines provides bus rides from Logan Airport to the Portland Transportation Center many times throughout the day, which typically take 2-2 1⁄2 hours. Once here, hotel shuttles can be arranged to provide transportation to your hotel.
The 2020 International Loon/Diver Symposium will be held at The Westin Portland Harborview, located at 157 High Street Portland, Maine 04101. We recommend that attendees book rooms at The Westin here in order to gain access to discounted lodging rates.
Directions, parking, and shuttle information can be found on their website, here.
Breakfast, lunch, and two snack/coffee breaks will be provided each day for symposium attendees, and are included with registration.
A catered dinner will be served at The Westin on Monday night during our Keynote Address; tickets can be purchased on our registration page. Dinner Tuesday and Wednesday will be on your own.
Portland has become known for its excellent restaurants, bakeries, and bars, many of which are just a short walk from The Westin.
