John Wayne Airport/Orange Country (SNA)

Address: 18601 Airport Way, Santa Ana, CA 92707

This is the closest and most convenient airport located just 20 minutes from the conference venue. SNA is a small airport and has very rapid service so it is ideal for regional travel. However, due to its size it's often difficult to find direct international flights into it.

Fun fact: A statue of John Wayne, the airport's namesake, welcomes passengers in the arrivals area on the lower level. The airport was named after the actor who lived in Newport Beach until he passed away in 1979.

Long Beach Airport (LGB)

Address: 4100 Donald Douglas Dr, Long Beach, CA 90808

LGB is another convenient airport that is only 25 minutes away from the conference venue. LGB has one terminal in Streamline Moderne style that is a historical landmark and was renovated in early 2013. It is also a small airport so it may be difficult to find direct flights, however, it is the West Coast hub for JetBlue.

Los Angeles Airport (LAX)

Address: 1 World Way, Los Angeles, CA 90045

This is the major international hub in Southern California, and you will not have a shortage of direct routes from Europe and Asia that fly in and out of LAX. It is about 45 minutes away from the conference venue, although it can take considerably longer depending on traffic in the LA area especially during the commute times (7-10am and 4-8pm). Please plan accordingly.
