IFDEPS 2018: Forum venue and transport



The forum took place at Les Trésoms Hotel  on the shore of the Annecy lake  (France) about one hour from Geneva (Switzerland) by car.


The workshop organisation provided transport by coach from and to Geneva at the beginning and the end of the workshop.

How to reach Geneva central railway station "Gare Cornavin" from the airport?

Free Ticket
When you arrive at Geneva International Airport by plane, you can get an 80 minute ticket for Geneva Public Transport for free. The ticket machine for free ticket is located at the luggage retrieval hall, just before going out on the left,  and prints the free ticket without requirements or limitations upon the pressing of the button. Free ticket entitles you to take an airport train (train from the airport to the center), bus or tram. Ticket is transferable and limited only by 80 minutes.

Where is the train station at the airport?
It is situated one level below the airport shopping zone. During daytime, every hour several trains go to  Geneva's Central Station (Cornavin) directly. The journey takes 6 minutes.
