From Zürich airport

To the venue: The easiest way to get to the World Trade Center is by tram. Tram numbers 10 (direction Bahnhofplatz/HB) and 12 (direction Bahnhof Stettbach) run regularly from the airport to Glattpark station in around 10 minutes. From there it is a 5 minute walk to the venue.

To the city centre: There are frequent train connections to Zürich main station (Hauptbahnhof) via S-Bahn numbers 2 and 16, as well as InterRegio trains. The journey takes around 15 minutes.

Zürich city is well connected by public transport with frequent trams, buses and overground (S-Bahn) trains.
