Transportation & Accommodations

The UW-Madison Homecoming Game is the same weekend as our TV Comedy conference, so we recommend that participants book travel and accommodations as swiftly as possible.



This event is being held in Vilas Communication Hall, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The panels are being held in the Nafziger Room, which is room 5055 on the fifth level. The city of Madison is located in south-central Wisconsin. While there is an airport in Madison, the Dane County Regional Airport, the city can also be easily reached via other larger airports. It is approximately a three hour bus ride from Chicago O’Hare International Airport and approximately one and a half hours by bus from Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Airport.
