Conference Venue

Marina Bay Sands is a huge place, with a hotel, convention centre, many shops and an Art and Science Museum. It may take some extra-time for a first-timer to locate the exact venue of Intermag Conference. We request all potential visitors to read through the following material carefully.

Although Marina Bay Sands Hotel (three-towered structure with a roof-top) is the official conference hotel, the conference (registration and all the sessions) will take place in the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre (marked in picture), which is adjacent to the Hotel. MBS Hotel and MBS Convention Centre are connected by an underpass.
