Capacity Asia: Venue and travel
Protests in Hong Kong SAR
We are aware of the current disruption in Hong Kong and are monitoring the situation very closely, as our participants’ safety is our number one priority. We have been assessing the travel security information from trusted government sources and based on this information, Capacity Asia is still scheduled to take place on the 02-04 December 2019 at The Conrad, Hong Kong. We will continue to monitor the situation and will be providing prompt updates on this page over the next few months, should the situation change. For further travel advice, we recommend that you use official government travel sources such as https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/hong-kong/safety-and-security.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A LIMITED ROOM BLOCK AT THE HOTEL AND ROOMS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY.
Transport within Hong Kong SAR
The closest airport to the The Conrad Hong Kong is:
Hong Kong International Airport (HKG)– 40 min from the hotel and cabs will cost around HK$350 (US$45).
Taxis are provided by the airport. The information desk after customs can provide you with an estimate to your hotel and maps to show the driver. A taxi from the airport to Central will cost $250-350, based on meter charge, plus toll fees. Use a red taxi for destinations on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon; Green taxis are restricted to the New Territories and blue taxis only serve the Lantau Island. Airport staff at the taxi stand can offer helpful assistance. If you are going to Hong Kong SAR Island, asking the driver to use the "Western Harbour Crossing" will avoid congestion, but will result in an additional $50 toll charge.
Airport Express is the quickest and most comfortable way to travel to Hong Kong Station in Central (24 minutes, Kowloon Station or Tsing Yi Station. Admirality station is the closest MTR station to The Conrad Hong Kong.
Capacity Media encourages all delegates to check their visa requirements for Hong Kong SAR. A visa support letter is a document stating that you wish to attend an event organised by Capacity Media. We are happy to provide registered attendees with a visa support letter to assist in the application process. To request a visa support letter, please forward your registration confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are required to secure payment before providing a visa support letter, as this is a legal document but will offer a 100% refund should your visa application be rejected.
