The fee by group transfers is included in the registration fee. The groups will be 8-15 people. Prepare yourselves to wait for others to join the group. And it is very important that you inform the local organizing committee about your arrival and departure times and arrival ways as early as possible.  And if you don’t arrive on your specified time, or if you don’t use the airport route for start   it’s your responsibility to come to the venue of the meeting. And there will be no refund even if you don’t use the services of the organization. Please inform the local committee if you are not going to use Group Transfers options and/or you’ll participate in PMC.
