APGV 2011 will be co-located with ECVP this year. The symposium will be held at the Centre des Congrès Pierre Baudis in Toulouse. Toulouse, also known as "la Ville Rose", is a lively city in the South-West of France, with a pleasant climate, very good food and friendly inhabitants.


There are regular flights to Toulouse from the UK (Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Leeds and Manchester) and Ireland (Dublin), the Netherlands (Amsterdam), Belgium (Brussels), Germany (Bremen, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich), Switzerland (Bale and Geneva), Italy (Milan and Rome), Spain (Barcelona, Madrid and Seville) and Portugal (Lisbon). There are even regular flights from Montreal. In addition, there are charters flying to other cities including Athens, Budapest, Dubrovnik, Gdansk, Innsbruck, Izmir, Oslo, Prague, Shannon and St. Petersburg.

Toulouse-Blagnac international airport is 8 km west of Toulouse. The city centre is easily reached by the airport shuttle service or by taxi (taxi rank outside the arrivals hall). You can also hire a car from one of the many vehicle hire companies represented at the airport.


ECVP have made arrangements with the Reserv'Hotels agency who have block booked over 400 hotel rooms for the conference, most of which are doubles. Attendees of APGV can also use this site to book accommodation. We recommend using the Reserv'Hotel site because they have selected around 24 recommended hotels that provide the best deals over a wide range of accommodation, from 2-star up to 4-star.
