The venue will be hosted by the
Benin Marina Hotel, however the number
of rooms in this hotel is very limited and priority will
be given to the organizers and the people supported
directly by the conference.
Because participants will be accommodated by a number of hotels in Cotonou, that have been selected by the organizers, you need to book your room directly with the hotel. When you book you need to precise that you participate to the Cassava Conference to benefit the negotiated rate.
Participants supported by the organizers will have their room booked by the organizers.
Transportation to the venue: During the week of the Conference (from Sunday afternoon to Friday evening), the organizers have planned on a shuttle system that will go through all the selected hotels and Hostels for students, as a rotation system. Buses will be passing by every 20 mn in the morning (7h30 to 9h), at noon time (noon to 2pm) and in the evening after the sessions and social events (variable times posted later). More precise information will be provided at a later time on the web and at the registration desk.
Hotel shuttle to the airport: All the hotels offer a free shuttle to the airport but you need to request it at booking time. At the airport you will see an IITA officer after the immigration booths, and he will help you to get your visa on arrival, if you requested one. He will also indicate to you where to find the hotel shuttle outside of the exit of the airport.
The Fix Rate FCFA/Euro is 650. There is a tourism tax of about 1180 CFA that is most of the time, included in the rates indicated below.
