Transportation and Accommodation

Please note that all international flights arrive at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, the capital city of Ghana and also the conference city.

On arrival, conference registrants who are staying at the Fiesta Royale Hotel may take a complimentary hotel shuttle from the airport. If you are staying at a different hotel, we suggest booking an Uber or airport taxi to your hotel. The journey may take between 10 to 20 minutes depending on your hotel location.

On each day of the summit, buses will pick up and drop off conference registrants staying at any of the recommended hotels.

For participants who choose to lodge elsewhere, you can use a ride-sharing app (like Uber or Bolt). Enter “Fiesta Royale Hotel“ as your destination when traveling to the conference.
