South Africa is readily accessible from all parts of the globe and there are direct flights to Johannesburg OR Tambo International from North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Pretoria, where the conference will be held, has infrastructure and facilities comparable to any modern city anywhere in the world. An added advantage is that delegates will be able to budget around US $150 per day to cover top class hotel accommodation, with all meals and entertainment included. This will more than offset the somewhat higher airfare costs that may be incurred by long-haul international delegates.
As a result of the preparations for the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa, all the existing infrastructure was upgraded and will be favourable for holding the 11th ICARD in South Africa. One of those successful upgrades is the Gautrain highspeed rail system that substantially improves the commute between OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg and Pretoria.
