Travel guidance

Business travel guidance provided for those planning to fly into MPK for our Design Summit in October.


Review the Global Travel, Expense & Corporate Card Policy for business travel guidance.

Be sure to book your flights and hotel at your earliest convenience. For those based on the West Coast, please plan to travel to the Summit the morning of Tuesday, Oct 10. Summit programming will start at 10:30 AM PT on Tuesday to accommodate morning travel. For those based 3+ hours away from Menlo Park, traveling on Monday, Oct 9 is just fine.

The default class of service for employee travel is economy class. However, continuous flights in excess of 4,500 miles are available to upgrade to business class.

We don’t have a hotel block so please book hotel rooms through Concur ASAP. Prices should not exceed an average room rate (excl. tax) of USD 450 per night per lodging rate guidance.

If you are interested in booking an Airbnb, please review Meta’s Airbnb guidance. We do request you be mindful of the Airbnb cancellation policies since they may not be as flexible as the hotels above.
