Getting Around

The Heathrow Express will bring you directly from Heathrow Airport to Paddington Station, which is just minutes from the conference hotel and venue.

The London Underground rail network, or “the Tube” is a great way to get around central London and will be an integral part of most people’s stay in the UK capital. London’s iconic double-decker buses are a quick, convenient and cheap way to travel around the city, with plenty of sightseeing opportunities along the way, and of course, the well-known black cabs can be flagged down on the streets from just about anywhere.


The official language of the conference is English.
