Meeting at the Airport
Starting from June 8, 2017, a special information desk labeled with the events logo will be placed in the Arrivals area of the Astana International Airport, and a group of our enthusiastic volunteers will meet you to facilitate your transfer to hotels.
The free shuttle service will be provided to participants between the Astana International Airport and the official partner hotels (Marriot, Hilton) and some alternative partner hotels (Zhumbaktas, IBIS Astana, Kazzhol).
All participants shall send their itineraries to Transport Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel.: +7 7172 790190) by June 5, 2017. Please note that we cannot guarantee your transfer if you don’t send us your itinerary in advance until the specified deadline.
During the events, participants may use regular daily shuttles that will run between the venue and official hotels of the events (see the list of official partner hotels in Section “Accommodation”). The names of official partner hotels will be indicated on the windshields of the buses.
