Venue
Beijing International Convention Center (BICC)

The Beijing International Convention Center is a well-known enterprise in Beijing. Opened in 1990, the convention center has served almost 1,000 different international and domestic conventions, exhibitions and meetings each year since its conception.

In 2002 the convention center merged together under North Star Industrial Group, creating a stronger reputation with more effective management. The Center is situated on the site of the Asian Games Village, a flourishing area of Beijing which has a collection of conference centers, businesses, shopping centers and entertainment venues. It is located on the North Fourth Ring road, just 20 kilometers from the International Capital Airport and 9 kilometers from the city center. The Center is also very close to the Olympic Games central area, including the Bird’s Nest.

The Beijing International Conference Center provides 5 star services and comprises 48 different conference rooms. The exhibition hall is 5,000 square meters. The North Star Continental Grand Hotel is a 4 star hotel with 538 guest rooms and 5 restaurants serving different types of cuisine. It’s the ideal place to conduct international and domestic conferences, display cultural events and hold business meetings.

How to get to the Beijing International Convention Center (BICC)?


From Beijing Capital Airport to BICC


(1) Taxi

Beijing Capital International Airport provides taxi stations at the airport, so you can take a taxi from the airport to the congress venue.


Taxi Locations:
T1: Outside Gate 1 on F1
T2: Outside Gate 5 to 9 on F1
T3: Please refer to the signs inside the terminal building
Fare: About RMB 120 (USD $ 20 including toll). The cost is subject to change depending on actual traffic conditions.


(2) By Airport Shuttle
Take the shuttle bus Line 5 (to Zhongguancun) and get off at Asian Games Village (Anhui Bridge) station, then bus No.419 to Wali South station. Then walk towards the south for about 400 meters to the BICC.

Fare: RMB 24 (USD $4)



Remarks:
1. You may change money at the Banks or Money Exchange at the airport beforehand since you need Chinese money (RMB) to pay for the means of transportation.

2. There will be quite some walk with ups and downs especially at the subway station for transfers if you choose to go to BICC by either airport shuttle, airport express or subway. Our previous conference delegates complained a lot about the inconveniences caused by taking airport express and subway, so it is preferred that you go to BICC by taxi.
