PRE-CONFERENCE INFORMATION

(Very Important – Please Print this out!)

The details below contain very important last minute information which you should print out and use as
a checklist and reference for the conference.

GETTING TO MARRIOTT HONG KONG SKY CITY HOTEL (EVENT LOCATION) And REGAL AIRPORT HOTEL

Airport Transfers are NOT Provided. All delegates are responsible for their own transportation to and from the airport. Taxi or the Hong Kong Airport Express (MRT System) are the most recommended modes.

HKIA / Regal Airport Hotel

The Regal Airport Hotel is connected to Hong Kong International airport. It’s a five minute walk from the airport lobby to the Regal Airport Hotel lobby; simply follow the signs for “Regal Airport Hotel”.

HKIA / Marriott Hong Kong SkyCity Hotel (for hotel guests only)

Use the hotel’s free shuttle service between Hong Kong International Airport and the hotel.

Due to the renovation of the Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 2, the hotel has relocated its Airport shuttle bus pick-up point to Car Park 1, Bay 11/12 Terminal 1 effective from 19 February 2019. The last bus departs from airport at 12:45 am.

Should you need any assistance, please contact the hotel’s Airport representative at B05 Marriott Counter in Terminal 1. Alternatively, Airport Express can be taken from Airport Station to AsiaWorld-Expo Station (one stop). You can then walk from the AsiaWorld-Expo station to Marriott (about ten minutes).

Regal Airport Hotel /Marriott Hong Kong SkyCity Hotel (Conference Venue)

VERY IMPORTANT (AIRPORT SECURITY / ACCESS TO HKIA via AIRPORT EXPRESS LINK)

Due to recent ongoing protests in downtown Hong Kong, important security measures have been put into place and the Airport Express Link can only be used for the following types of trips:

  1. Delegates staying at Regal Airport Hotel or SkyCity Marriott Hotel must show their room keys if they wish to have access to HKIA and the Airport Express Link station on days other than their scheduled flight departure.

  2. Guests not staying at Regal Airport Hotel or Marriott SkyCity cannot enter the airport area to take the Airport Express Link (AEL) train from the airport to AWE.

  3. Delegates not staying at Regal Airport Hotel or SkyCity Marriott Hotel are required to take the Airport Express Link from Hong Kong / Kowloon / Tsing Yi Station to AWE directly and cannot disembark at the Airport Station without a boarding pass for the next 24 hrs. From AWE train station, delegates can walk to Marriott SkyCity (approximately 5-10 minute walk).
