The conference is going to be held in New York, USA. The exact venue (hotel address) for the conference will be updated soon.
New York City is one of the largest cities in the world and it has three airports supporting the metropolitan area:
Getting Around New York City is very easy. The communication is well developed and modernized.
Bus: The City's rail and bus system is run by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and known as MTA New York City Transit. It's inexpensive, environmentally friendly and a great way to see sights throughout the five boroughs—and it operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To navigate the system, you can now download the MTA's official app MYmta, for both Android and iPhone.
Subways: The easiest and quickest way to travel around NYC is by a public subway train. Riding the subway is also a fantastic way to feel like a local during your stay in New York.
Subway trains operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
For $2.75 (the cost of a single ride when using a pay-per-ride MetroCard), you can use the system citywide and transfer to other subway lines as many times as you need, as long as you don't exit the system through a turnstile.
You can transfer from bus to subway or vice versa within two hours of using your MetroCard.
Taxi: The City's fleet of yellow taxicabs and green Boro Taxis are regulated by the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Grabbing a cab can be ideal when tired feet, heavy luggage or shopping bags weigh you down.
Car: If you're planning to drive around the City, use Google Maps to help you navigate New York City roads. Also, make sure you know where to park.
Ferry: As a waterfront city, New York is home to an extensive ferry system that can get you uptown, downtown and across the rivers to Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and New Jersey.
Bike: Biking in the City is good for the environment and your body, and can often be faster and cheaper than fuel-powered transportation. Cycling hotspots like Central, Riverside and Prospect Parks are great options for hitting the City on two wheels, as are bike paths along the Hudson and East Rivers and on many bridges—but all of NYC is bikeable.
Helicopter: Seeing New York by air is an unforgettable experience, and the City offers helicopter tours for the adventurous and just plain curious.
Cruise: New York City is one of America's top cruise ports. Passengers from New York City can cruise to the Caribbean year-round and may also cruise to the Northeast, Canada, Bermuda, England and many other destinations around the world. Recent infrastructure improvements ensure smooth sailing for the cruise passengers who pass through New York City.
Travelling with Pets: If you're bringing a dog or cat along on your NYC adventure, you'll have no trouble getting around—but it's important to know the rules. Only small-size pets in carriers are allowed on MTA buses, subways, and trains, as well as in taxis. Properly harnessed service animals are also permitted on mass transit.
