WSA hosts all of their events in large venues, typically convention halls, stadiums or arenas. As such, plenty of parking is typically available on-site or very close to the venue. However, this also means that there is often a parking fee. Any parking fees are charged and retained by the venue or parking lot owners. WSA does not have any control over parking fees or receive any proceeds from it.
