AMPRA-6 will take place at USF's St. Petersburg campus in the University Student Center (USC), located at 200 6th Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701.


The St. Petersburg/Clearwater airport code is PIE. This convenient airport is only about 13 miles from our conference location. Tampa International airport (TPA) is approximately 23 miles away.


AMPRA-6 has an exclusive arrangement with Staybridge Suites. Among their other amenities, Staybridge Suites offers free breakfast, free parking and an on-site pool. This hotel is an easy and direct 15-20 minute walk to our conference venue. Use this link to reserve your room at our special discounted rate of $155 per night (plus 13% city tax).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: St Petersburg is a popular tourist destination, so we encourage you to reserve your room now! Staybridge Suites will ask for your credit card to hold your reservation, but your card will not be charged until the day of your arrival. If, for any reason, this link is not working or you are unable to make your reservation, please email the AMPRA6 committee right away ([email protected]).

If you do not wish to stay at Staybridge Suites, other reputable hotels within walking distance of the conference venue include the Hilton St Petersburg Bayfront and Hyatt Place St Petersburg Downtown. AMPRA-6 does not have any agreements with either of these hotels, but you can book rooms directly through their websites. (For Hilton, a limited number of rooms may be available at the university’s corporate rate, using this link.) We recommend staying in one of the downtown hotels because public transportation in St Petersburg outside of downtown is extremely limited.
