How to reach the conference


Lugano is in the southern part of Switzerland and it is extremely easy to reach with several means of public transportation and also by means of private transport.
Here below a couple of tips to reach the conference's venue (Palazzo dei Congressi)

From "Milano Centrale" FS railway station
The best connection is provided by the train called "Regio Express" (RE). This train also stops in Monza, Seregno, Como San Giovanni and Chiasso.

In order to find the best way to plan your trip, you can find the complete timetable on the Swiss Railway Federal website.

Please note: With connection nr 6 you won't reach the location in time for the keynote but you'll easily attend the rest of the conference.

From Malpensa Airport
There is a shuttle bus (Malpensa Express) that connects Lugano and Milano Malpensa on hourly basis. The round-trip price is 34 EUR. More details on the company website http://malpensa-express.com/

From Switzerland
You can plan your journey on the official Swiss Railway Federal website.

From Lugano railway station
We are trying to provide a shuttle service from the city railway station, but in any case you can easily reach the Palazzo dei Congressi walking through the city centre (we strongly suggest it: Lugano is a very beautiful city) or by bus (line nr. 2, more detail on TPL). The one way ticket costs 2.40 CHF and you can get the scheduled timetable here.

If you want to reach the conference with your own car there is a parking deck below the location. Please contact us to get the special price ticket (15 CHF/day) for the conference attendees.
