Dear All

Please find hereafter some useful information for the 53rd<

General Information:

ICANN Full Schedule & Venue Map & Guide (top of main page - PDF file)

At-Large Buenos Aires Meetings (this will always be the most updated
version with any last minute agenda/schedule changes):

Meetings Venue Map (meeting rooms):

Good meeting venue with Guest rooms & Meeting rooms all within the main
Hotel area. Elevator and/or escalator access to all floors and meeting
areas. Please note there is a fair amount of walking as large meeting venue.
Washrooms plenty.

Buenos Aires Maps:
Available at Hotel Reception and Concierge.

Transport from Buenos Aires Airport:


For your own safety, do not contract transportation services offered
verbally. Passengers should get a taxi from the official taxi info desks
located throughout the EZE airport. Don't hire unmarked vehicles/taxi.
Please confirm with the taxi driver prior to engaging services if paying by
credit card is an acceptable form of payment. It's 35 km or 22 miles from
EZE to the hotel. Depending on traffic, it should take 35 minutes to 1
hour. Traffic is usually heavy in the morning going into the city but in
the afternoon it's lighter.

NOTE: Do not exchange currency from the booths that you see as you exit the
baggage pick up area as they have the tendency to give bad rates. There are
several ATMs in each terminal where you can get pesos.
