Conference Social


The 2015 Mid-Atlantic Technical Communication Conference is in the Giant Community Center at 315 York Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090. The Giant Community Center is located above the Giant Supermarket and features a large auditorium with three breakout session rooms.

View Larger Map

Directions from the PA Turnpike:

  • Exit the PA Turnpike at Exit 343 to PA 611 South (Easton Road). Go about 1/3 mile.
  • Turn left on Fitzwatertown Road. Go about 1/2 mile.
  • Turn right on PA 263 (York Road). Go a little more than 1/2 mile.
  • Turn left into the Giant parking lot.
  • After parking, enter the Giant using the doors at right.
  • After you enter the store, look for the “Community Center” sign. (The entrance is close to the cafe — we’ll have their coffee upstairs!)
  • Walk through the doors and up the stairs.

If you choose to follow the Google Maps directions, be aware that its very easy to miss the left turn from PA 611 South onto Cedar Ave., and easy to get lost if you miss that turn.

Public transportation is an option. The Giant Community Center is a five-minute walk from the SEPTA Willow Grove Regional Rail station on the Warminster Line.
