Conference Venue, Hotels and Travel Information

Conference Venue & Host Hotel

The 2019 Chef to Chef Conference takes places at Westin Charlotte in the heart of Charlotte’s Uptown District. The Uptown Charlotte area is the central business district of Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte’s city center is divided into four wards, spreading out from the intersection of Trade and Tryon streets.

In the heart of the Queen City, beneath glistening skyscrapers, locals flock to restaurants, rooftop patios and colorful taverns—hungry for post-work chatter and play. It’s here in Uptown (not downtown) that you find the city’s pulse.

Room reservations are included in your registration.
