The Duke Energy Convention Center’s main entrance is located at the intersection of Fifth Street and Elm Street in downtown Cincinnati. Over 5,000 parking spaces are located immediately surrounding the Center in metered street spaces, private flat lots and privately managed garages. The garages offer direct entry to the Convention Center via Cincinnati's Skywalk System. All conference hotels use the public lots for parking, no hotel has it's own garage. We recommend parking your own car to avoid expensive valet parking rates.
