GETTING HEREThe conference venue/hotel is in the L'Hivernage district of Marrakesh, a 10 minute drive from Marrakesh Menara International Airport (RAK). When you arrive at the airport you will need to complete an arrival card before arriving at the front of the queue for passport control. Arrival cards are found near to the entrance door of passport control or may be passed out on your flight.
Groups of 10 or more flying together from their home airport may contact Patti George at email@example.com for quotes on discounted group airfare
BY TAXI/PRIVATE TRANSFERTaxi stands are right outside the terminal doors, but it’s recommended you go beyond these to the grouping of taxis outside the gate for better fares and be sure to agree the fare before beginning your journey. Alternatively, you can book a transfer in advance with Menara Tours: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject "FFI Conference". In your message please include your name, arrival date and flight number, and number of people. They will respond to you quickly with a quote. The driver of your Menara Tours air-conditioned minibus (suitable from 2 to 13 people plus luggage) will meet you in the arrivals hall holding a sign with your name.
PRICINGAll fees quoted are in US Dollars.
The conference fee is $375 and includes: three plenary sessions with speakers, entertainment and coffee breaks; a belly-dancing class; two lunches at the hotel; our popular gala banquet; and a series of both traditional workshops and interactive "unconferenced" sessions offered during four workshop periods, covering FF-related topics and topics of local cultural significance such as Moroccan cooking and argan oil production.
