Parking: There is free parking in the garage directly behind the building.
When you get to the garage, tell the guard that you are attending the ACC event (and if there is no guard, press the red button and say you are with the ACC Event). After parking, walk out of the garage directly across from where you drove in. You will go through an outdoor courtyard and enter VALO Park from the rear. Go down the stairs (or take the elevator) and check in with the guard, who will direct you to the right room.
