How to reach the conference venue?

Basically you have three options:

a)      By train: take the train from Barcelona airport terminal 2 and get off at Sants Station. We had direct train from Airport to Mataró in the past, but the path has been modified and now it is mandatory to transfer in Sants Station. Probably you will arrive to airport terminal 1, but there is a free shuttle bus service from Terminal 1 to terminal2 and viceversa. Once in Mataró train station you need to walk about 15 minutes (or take a cab). Total cost is around 4 eur (+ cab). Train information is available here:

b)      Take the aerobus ( ) and get off in Plaça Catalunya (last stop). You can take this bus in both terminals, T1 and T2. It’s a very frequent service (5 minutes waiting time), and its cost is around 6 eur. Close to Plaça Catalunya, go to Ronda Unversitat 21 (2 minutes walking, 170 meters according to google maps) and take the “Casas” bus number C1 (cost around 3 EUR). In this case you can get off just in front of the NH Hotel. This is the time schedule for the bus: basically it says that you have one bus each 30 minutes, departing at five minutes past hour, and 35 minutes past hour. This is our suggested option.

c)       Take a taxi from Barcelona airport to Mataró Hotel. They would wait and pickup you at the airport. Please, consider that if the price is not fixed in advance they will probably charge more than 100 eur (according to taximeter).
