The annual Massachusetts Conference for Women takes place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) on Thursday, December 5th.
The event is expected to bring a record 10,000 attendees to South Boston Waterfront. A large majority of attendees are expected to drive to the event.
Traffic in the area is expected to be impacted between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Thursday December 5, with morning and afternoon rush hours expected to see a large volume of traffic in and around the Waterfront.
Attendees, as well as local employees working in and around the South Boston Waterfront, are urged to make alternative plans for their commute that day. Use of public transit is strongly encouraged. If you must drive in, please allow additional time for your commute.
Parking in the South Lot of the BCEC is expected to fill for this event. Additional parking will be offered at off-site lots in the Seaport area.

Police details will be in place to help direct traffic and pedestrians.
