Welcome to the Brandywine Valley! Spanning Northern Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania, this scenic waterway is home to a number of fantastic cultural institutions from the historic Brandywine Battlefield and the world-renowned Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania to the sprawling Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library and the recently renovated Delaware Museum of Nature and Science just down the road in Delaware. We could not be more excited to welcome you to our backyard, just a few miles south of Philadelphia!

Transportation

For attendees flying to VEX23, you will be flying into Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). The conference hotel is about a 25 minute cab ride from the airport. You can also take the SEPTA airport line to 30th Street Station and transfer to the Wilmington line.

For folks along the East Coast, there is an Amtrak station less than a mile from the hotel. From the station, you can opt for a short cab ride or a 20-minute walk to get to the hotel.
