Tel. +39 0464 520000
The Google maps link to the conference center is the following:
This year there is no single conference hotel, but a range of hotels available to participants. They are accessed through the Hotel reservations link on the conference main webpage. On the webpage of each hotel, a link Location/map shows the distance between that particular hotel and the conference center. All hotels are within walking distance. Most hotels have WiFi access; all of them have Internet points. The webpages of hotels have details on conditions of access to WiFi. There is WiFi access in the whole conference center through individual cards.
PLEASE MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you want to secure a room in the hotel of your first choice. Riva del Garda is a major tourist resort. Although rooms have been reserved for the conference, the high number of people who have registered so far means that there will be pressure especially on the best hotels.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT ALL INQUIRIES ABOUT ACCOMMODATION SHOULD BE ADDRESSED FIRST TO THE CONFERENCE TRAVEL AGENT RIVATOUR ([log in to unmask]).
Access to Riva del Garda
Information on how to reach Riva del Garda is available on <http://www.rivatour.it/interne/how_to_get_there_dovesiamo.ashx?ID=8660&IDL=2>http://www.rivatour.it/interne/how_to_get_there_dovesiamo.ashx?ID=8660&IDL=2.
The best option is to fly into Verona via Rome, Paris, Munich or
Frankfurt. There are no direct flights from Amsterdam or Heathrow and
only one daily from London Gatwick. Venice airport is fine too if you
land there before 6 PM, later, it may be complicated to get train
connections to Verona-Rovereto (the railway station is Venezia
Mestre, about 30' by bus from the airport). Landing in Milan Malpensa
is not recommended as it requires a long journey by train. Innsbruck
airport is also feasible (about 4 hours by train on the line to Verona).
The conference travel agent, Rivatour
Riva del Garda from the main airports
Rovereto is the closest railway station and is located on the line
from Verona to Innsbruck-Munich. If coming from Milan, Venice, or
Bologna-Florence-Rome youll have to change in Verona unless you have
boarded a Eurocity train to Munich.
