Let’s face it – the rainy season is here and greatly unpredictable. The rains may fall any time of the day without notice. When it however not falling, the weather is clement as the heat is usually not beyond 30-32 degrees. A safe way to prepare is to have suitable clothes for both options as well as umbrellas just in case.
For all events, they shall be held in halls and ball rooms to avoid disruption by unexpected showers.

Money and banks

Cash withdrawal points (ATMs) are spread around the city but the closet is those of the Guaranty Trust Bank which is 3 minutes from the conference venue and they accept most debit cards.

Card payments are also widely accepted in most scandalized commercial establishment in the city.

If you arrive by road, ask anyone for directions to the popular Apo Legislate Quarter, once you are here you are just few meters or minutes away from the conference hotel. Better still, request a uber taxi online to bring you to the conference venue. It is that simple!
