Transport Arrangement to/from Hotels

Two-way bus transport will be provided between the recommended hotels (Genting Hotel Jurong and Park Avenue Rochester) and the conference venue. The bus will pick-up and drop-off participants only at these two hotels' locations at specific timings on conference days. This transport is only participants who have already pre-booked a seat on one of the bus routes.

Bus Transport Schedule

Two-way bus transfers for conference participants (from hotel to conference venue, and from conference venue back to hotel). There will only be a single trip each way each day of the conference. The bus will depart promptly and we regret that the bus cannot wait for latecomers.
