Venue and Travel
We propose to use the 5-star Oriental Riverside Hotel at the heart of Lujiazui as the conference venue for ICME 2019.
Oriental Riverside Hotel was the first hotel ranked as 5-star in the Pudong area of the city. Located near the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the hotel has easy access to all parts of the city, and is five kilometers from Shanghai downtown. The Shanghai International Convention and Exhibition Center recently hosted the Fortune Global Forum, and world business leaders staying at the hotel have raved about its comprehensive business facilities and services. The Convention and Exhibition Center has a full range of meeting and exhibition facilities, including the Grand Ball Auditorium, the Yellow River Hall, the Yangtze River Hall, the Exhibition Hall and 21 small function rooms.
