A taxi from Beijing International Airport to the INFORMS hotels and China National Convention Center is approximately 100 RBM (about $15 US) and takes about 30 minutes. We recommend that you print out the hotel address in Chinese characters and give it to the taxi driver, so your destination is clear. There is also an airport express train (25 RMB) that goes directly from the airport into the city. The train stops at two stations with direct subway links and taxis available to the conference hotels or other parts of the city. See information here.
