Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, dubbed as America’s Friendliest Airport, is the main airport serving the Greater Phoenix area. It serves more than 40 million passengers a year, and goes to more than 100 domestic and international destinations, making it one of the 10 busiest airports in the U.S.. With about 1,200 daily flights – about 500 nonstop – Sky Harbor is one of the most convenient airports.

June is considered an off-peak travel season for Phoenix, so good deals are bound to be had. The conference hotel (the Graduate) has a free shuttle (on the hour), adding to the convenience.
