The Golden Triangle Regional Airport is the final stop for flights coming through Atlanta, Georgia via Delta Airlines. It is about 20 minutes away from Mississippi State University, and there is a free shuttle that will transport visitors from the airport to their hotel.
All other airports (Memphis, TN; Jackson, MS; Birmingham, AL) are about 2.5 hrs from MSU, so attendees coming from any of those locations will be on their own getting to Starkville.
We have free public transportation in the form of city transit buses, but just about everything is within walking distance from the hotel and conference building.
- Complimentary breakfast
- Free Wifi
- Walking distance to Bost/Clay Lyle/Local restaurants
- Free airport shuttle drop-off/pick up
Follow the link below to make reservations:
- The Comfort Inn and Suites is the only hotel booked for this conference.
- A maximum of 25 people can attend the conference in person, but the hotel is holding only 20 rooms for the conference, so first come-first serve. There is another hotel directly across the street that is only a little more expensive (Courtyard Mariott).
*In order to ensure the rate and availability of rooms, reservations must be made by May 22nd.
Attendees will be responsible for getting meals on their own, with the exception of a free lunch hosted by the PCB Lab on Friday, between the morning meeting and the tour of the SHB Rearing facility and Pollinator Health Lab at Clay Lyle Entomology (MSU Campus).
