Arrival by plane

Edinburgh has an international airport (EDI) which is about 12 km away from the city centre. There are Airlink express buses every 10 minutes (£8 return trip, £5.50 single, service 24/7) and a tram connection every 10 minutes (£9.50 return trip, service between 6am and 10pm) between the airport and the city centre. A taxi from the airport to the city centre should cost about £30.

Glasgow airport is around 1.5 hours away and has a number of useful connections.

Arrival by train

Edinburgh's main station is Waverley. It serves several train lines, connecting to most of the major UK cities. The fastest LNER trains take less than 4.5 hours between London and Edinburgh, which is a 630 km trip. Taxis are available at the station, while Lothian Buses from Waverley Station all go to the venue of the Conference. Bus drivers do not give change, so the exact fare of £2 must be paid when you board the bus. It is also possible to pay via the 'tap-tap-cap' system - a contactless payment system (on the buses) with daily fare capping, meaning if you use the same card/digital payment on different buses numerous times, it will automatically convert it to the lowest fare (switch to a daily pass for example). It is also possible to download the mobile ticket App (‘m-tickets’ – Apple, Android) or the Lothian Bus App (‘Bus & Tram’) to buy tickets.
