Venue and Parking Information

Hotel Ballast

This year's Symposium will take place at the Hotel Ballast a Tapestry Collection by Hilton in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Hilton is located at 301 North Water Street.  The Hilton recently underwent a multi-million dollar restoration.  These recent renovations, and the Hilton's known brand of providing exceptional service, made this venue the perfect choice to host our Employment Law Symposium.
