CONFERENCE OVERVIEW: 48th Annual ACH Conference, Havana, June 5-9, 2016
Those attending the 2016 ACH Annual Meeting conference should fly into the José Martí International Airport in Havana, Cuba, located in the municipality of Boyeros, about nine miles from Havana. The José Martí Airport is served by several carriers. Flights from the US are still managed by authorized charter operators. Flights from Canada, Europe, and Latin America have regular services through different carriers. Copa Airlines operates the largest number of daily flights to Havana from Latin America, the U.S. and the Caribbean through Panama City. Participants will also travel to Havana from Mexico City, Nassau (Bahamas), Grand Cayman, Montego Bay (Jamaica) or Toronto.
Most conference sessions will be held in the Hotel Nacional de Cuba. The Hotel Nacional is Cuban national landmark and has been designated a National Monument. It is located near to Old Havana and its Fortification System, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Standing on a hill just a few meters from the sea, the Nacional offers a sweeping view of the Havana Harbor, the seawall (Malecón) and the city.
