Delegates arriving/departing individually are kindly requested to make their own travel arrangements. Upon arrival at the Tallinn Lennart Meri airport, we recommend you to take a taxi from the taxi stand in front of the airport. Taxi from the airport to the hotel takes about 10 minutes (depending on traffic) and costs around 10 €. Taxis accept Visa / Mastercard. ATMs are located in the airport terminal building.

Bus and tram stops, car parks and taxi stand are only meters away from Airport entrances. www.tallinn-airport.ee/en/transport/leaving-the-airport/

Men can – but don’t have to – wear a jacket i.e. you don’t necessarily need a white shirt and tie. Women can wear casual evening dresses or a nice trousers with a blouse. If you wish to walk to the Gala Dinner location, please remember to wear comfortable shoes.
