Transportation: The conference hotel is approximately 5 miles from the McCarran International Airport. The below prices are approximate costs of one-way travel between the airport and Westgate.

Uber/Lyft: $15 - $20; Supershuttle: $15; Taxi: $22

Las Vegas Monorail: The Las Vegas Monorail does not have service that extends to McCarran so you will need to find alternative transportation between the airport and hotel. However, the Westgate Las Vegas Resort has a very convenient monorail stop directly on its property ("Westgate Station") which you can use to visit other sites along the Las Vegas Strip.

The WHA is hosted on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and benefits from the generous support of the College of Arts and Sciences.
