There is a designated media area in Parking Lot C, just inside Gate 1, accessible from 200 North 1000 West. This area offers accessible parking for the media check-in at the Wasatch Building. Show the AMPCO parking attendant media identification and follow the parking attendant's direction to park. Park your vehicle in the VIP/MEDIA/SPONSOR area, THEN GO DIRECTLY to check in at the media center, where you will receive a parking permit to hang in your vehicle. Please allow yourself plenty of time to park. On some days when the parking is full, it's difficult to get through traffic. If the lot is marked "FULL", signal to the attendant that you are with the media for access.
