Transportation

Group transfers Mexico City to Queretaro (1x):
Group transportation for all faculty and registered delegates will be provided from 2 pick-up points in Mexico City to The Hacienda Jurica in Querétaro. Not from the WCN location (Centro Banamex), as this is too far from where most guests are staying. The two pick-up points in Mexico City will be the Fiesta Americana Reforma Hotel, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel (both WCN preferred hotels). Please try to be at your selected pick-up point at least 10 minutes in advance as we also need time to load the luggage! Please do not miss this bus, as there will be no other!

Group transfer Queretaro to Mexico City International Airport (1x):

We will leave Santiago de Queretaro at 07:00 am, and arrival at the airport is expected around 11:00 hrs, depending on traffic. With normal traffic this would take 3 hours or less, but this cannot be predicted.
