Same coast, bigger throwdown. East Coast Throwdown has moved to the Hilton Stamford in Connecticut! With easy access from major NY airports, Metro-North Railroad and right off I-95, we’re more convenient to attend than ever. With over 15,000 square feet at our disposal, expect more comfort and the best event experience we’ve offered to date.
So you want to go to ECT? Awesome! Then you’ll need to know how to get there…
LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is the nearest major international airport.
White Plains Airport (HPN) is the nearest airport but has limited flight routes being a domestic airport.
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is just slightly farther away than LGA. Attendees may find the cheapest and most convenient fair to JFK, but please be advised that ground transportation to ECT will be more expensive.
