Public transportation is almost non-existent in Lebanon. Shared taxis or ‘service’ are a common means of public transport with Beirut. However, outside Beirut it is advisable to use taxis from taxi companies and reserving by phone a taxi. Since roads are often congested in and around Beirut, please allow sufficient time to commute to and from the conference venue. The Ministry of Public Works and Transport website is currently available in Arabic language only (http://www.transportation.gov.lb/).
Shuttle services will be provided from designated hotels to and from the conference venue. If you choose to stay in other hotels, please check with the reception at your hotel or visit the links provided below.
