Conference Location and Official HotelsThe conference will be held at the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, located in the heart of Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood and just 5 miles/8 km from Boston’s Logan International Airport. In many ways, the Hynes Convention Center is a city within a city - connected to two major retail complexes that contain just about everything you need during your stay. Fast food, fine dining, sundries, personal services, world-class shopping - all under one roof. Attendees at the 2015 Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics conference can experience a serious slice of Boston without ever worrying about the weather.
The AACR has contracted with several hotels to offer reduced room rates for attendees at this year’s conference. The Sheraton Boston Hotel will serve as the headquarter hotel for the 2015 Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics conference, with the Hilton Boston Back Bay and Marriott Copley Place also serving as official conference hotels.
