Bus transfer to and from the Mediterranean Conference Centre and Conference Reception

Dedicated ENF2017 coaches will depart from the below locations at intervals to collect ENF2017 delegates and transfer them to the conference venue in Valletta in time for the morning sessions. On the evening of the 2nd day delegates are offered a shuttle from MCC to the Conference reception and then later back to the hotel areas.

Delegates are to note that this service is being offered on a first-come-first-served basis.  Delegates are encouraged to catch the early buses and to be at their preferred pick-up location 5 to 10 minutes before the arrival of the bus.

ENF2017 staff wearing red polo shirts will be at all stations to assist participants and guide them accordingly.

Due to the unique geography of Malta and its at times intense traffic, we recommend delegates to make use of the transportation offered in order to avoid being late for the morning sessions.
