Travel Updates for SEPG Europe 2012

Iberia Update: Pilot Strike Postponed

Recent news reports indicate that the Spanish airline Iberia’s main pilots’ union¬† members have suspended a series of strikes planned to last until July after the government agreed to put their case to arbitration.

The situation is not expected to cause travel difficulties for SEPG Europe 2012 delegates.

Limited Guest Rooms Available at the NH Eurobuilding Hotel

The NH Eurobuilding Hotel is the host hotel for SEPG Europe 2012. Rooms during the conference week are becoming very limited, so book your accommodations soon to avoid missing out on the ease and convenience of staying just steps away from the conference action.



Flight Disruptions Possible on Iberia Airlines

For delegates making travel arrangements for SEPG Europe 2012, please note that pilots for the Spanish airline Iberia recently went on strike. News reports indicate that the pilots have planned 30 one-day strikes, every Monday and Friday, from now through 20 July 2012.

As you make travel plans for SEPG Europe 2012 in Madrid, we recommend staying up to date on the status of the Iberia strike. If at all possible, consider altering your days of arrival and departure and/or taking an alternate airline to reduce the chance of travel difficulties. Madrid Airport Barajas is served by all the major airline alliances, so there are many options for arranging travel to and from Madrid.

For more information on news on the strike and canceled flights, visit the Iberia website.

Information on accommodations at the NH Eurobuilding Hotel are available on the SEPG Europe conference website.

Register today (before the early-bird savings expire on 30 April) and join us for three days of learning and networking, tapas, Spanish wine, and local culture. We look forward to seeing new and returning delegates in Madrid!

SEPG Europe 2012: A Perfect Blend of Learning and Networking

SEPG Europe 2012 is a premier, can’t-miss conference, but don’t just take our word for it. Here are actual comments from SEPG Europe 2011 delegates:

“Listening to some of the presentations allowed me to understand common problems, strengths, and weaknesses, and triggered thinking out of the box.”

“It is always interesting and stimulating to exchange ideas with colleagues from different organizations. And there were plenty of opportunities during this conference during breaks or while attending the social events.”

“I learned new, innovative ideas and met a lot of great people.”

“It was, once again, a great opportunity to network, share, and learn.”

“I really enjoyed getting together with other process experts and learning about the current status of process topics across the industry.”

“It was a good opportunity to catch up with a few former colleagues and pick up a couple of new ideas to consider in my work.”

Be a part of Europe’s premier process conference where you will have many opportunities to learn and network with colleagues from around the world.
