WARNING - SCAM ALERT: Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) & Exhibitor Housing Management (EHM), Traveller Point (TP) and Travel Hosting Team (THT)

Elsevier has been made aware that third-party companies are targeting Elsevier conference speakers and attendees with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme.

The companies are calling/emailing conference attendees, using email addresses which appear very similar to official Elsevier email addresses, and claiming to be the “official” housing bureau and/or authorized by Elsevier to book hotel/travel accommodations for the conference. This is entirely false and should anyone contact you, please do not provide them with any of your details, but refer this to Elsevier. If you are in any doubt about an email regarding the conference, please check this with a member of the organising team via: [email protected]opens in new tab/window

How to reach the venue and hotel

Accessible public transport information:

In the city: The tram and the metro are both accessible, the tram has a small ramp to allow wheelchair access and the metro has an elevator. The tram and metro can take you all over the city.

Between the airport and venue: Between the airport and the hotel, you can use the metro to syntagma square and then taking the red line with direction Eliniko and get off at the station Syngrou Fix which is 500 meters from the hotel. From there you need to take a taxi since the guest will have to go along and ultimately cross the avenue which we do not recommend.
