Once you have determined the week you will be participating in our on-site program, it is highly recommended you schedule your travel and lodging arrangements as soon as possible.

As part of the Charlotte metro region, Davidson is closely accessible from Interstate highways I-77, I-85, and I-485. The Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, serving all major airlines, is a 25-30 minute drive to Davidson. Clients have found the rates to Charlotte very affordable from throughout the nation.

For your convenience, it is best to research and book your flight as well as rental car a minimum of two weeks prior to your arrival. Additionally, it may be preferable to have your own transportation to explore the Charlotte-Metro offerings, cultural or sporting events, and evening shopping or dining.  The Centre is located conveniently off of I-77, exit 30, on Lake Davidson. Downtown Davidson is a one-mile drive from the office space, however there are several restaurants within a close walk.

To assist in your planning, the program begins early Monday morning. As such, clients have found it helpful to arrive Sunday evening. You can expect each day to start at 8am and end between 4pm and 5pm.
