Le Meridien) Airport/Hotel Transfers

ICIS 2023 attendees now have the opportunity to book one-way/roundtrip airport/hotel transfers at their expense.
Two options are available.

This is a cost-effective option which offers shared airport transfers based on your flight arrival and departure information. Please complete the above form which will enable us to determine how many are arriving on the same flight and provide a cheaper transportation fee, if possible.

This will also allow us to determine if two individuals are arriving on the same flight and make them aware so that they can share a sedan and split the cost.

Submission Deadline: November 26 – Extended until Dec. 1

Transportation Update: Week of November 27

Thank you for submitting your request. The team is working on grouping the requests and determining the lower fee, when applicable. Extending the deadline has added a bit more time to this task.  Thanks for your patience, you will be contacted very soon.
