For those arriving by plane at St Louis Lambert Airport to attend the conference and preferring not to rent a car, you can ride the Metrolink (train) east to the Sheraton City Center for $3.65.

The Metro only goes east from the airport – get off at the Civic Center stop. The Sheraton City Center sits just across the street from the Civic Center Metrolink stop. Metrolink ticket vending machines are located at the stops.
