Practical info


The first day of the conference will take place at the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry on Dzerbenes Street 27, but the second and third days will be organised at the heart of Riga city at the Wellton Riverside Spa Hotel on 11. novembra krastmala 33.


The Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry is located in Riga, the capital of Latvia, and it can be reached from the city centre by taxi (8 km) or public transport. We suggest using the bus 21 from city centre.

If you are taking the bus 22 from the Riga Airport, get off the bus at the stop "11. novembra krastmala" and you will have reached the Wellton Riverside Spa Hotel. To go to the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry switch to bus 21 at the "11.novembra krastmala" stop and go to stop "Zemitāna laukums", from where you will have a 5 min walk to reach the institute.

The most convenient accommodation option for the conference participants will be the Wellton Riverside Spa Hotel, which will be the conference venue on April 25-26, and will also provide a special price for the rooms for the conference participants. However, any other hotels in the city centre, especially the Old Town, will be a good choice.
