- The IBM Innovation Center is located at 1 Rogers Street Cambridge, MA 02142. The auditorium is on the 1st floor and the rest of the center is on the 2nd floor. The sign on the front of the building states "One Charles Park" (this can sometimes confuse guests).
- Guests can park across the street at the Cambridgeside Galleria Mall and we will validate their parking for a discounted rate (usually $3-11 depending on how long they are parked) at the reception desk on the 2nd floor. Once guests park their cars and take the elevator/escalator to the first floor, they will want to walk towards the end of the mall where the Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen are located (not towards the food court which is on the opposite end).
- We are located in the building directly across the street. Guests will have to walk around to the front side of the building to enter at the main doors.
