F.A.Q. for speakers
Hello, dear colleagues!
We have prepared a small memo to refer to on various subjects.
Where the event will occur?
The conference is going to take place at the Crowne Plaza St. Petersburg Airport hotel located by the address Startovaya st., 6, letter A (Russian version: Стартовая ул., 6, лит. А).
How do I get to the hotel from the Pulkovo airport?
The hotel is situated 5 minutes away from the Pulkovo airport. The easiest and fastest way to get there is to grab a taxi. Please, avoid private drivers who offer their services in the airport lobby. Find an official taxi booth or call Uber.
