FAQ

How can i reach to Łódź, Poland?

If you’re coming from Poland then the most comfortable way is to reach Łódź by car, as it is located directly in the middle of Poland. For visitors from outside Poland, we recommend flight to Łódź Airport (LCJ),  Warsaw Okęcie (WAW) or Warsaw-Modlin (WMI) followed by train or car trip to Łódź center.

I’m coming by car, where can I park it?

The Vienna House Hotel Andel’s has it’s own underground parking, where you can leave your car. If you decided to purchase the BASIC package, then additional parking fee will be needed (you can pay the the reception desk). Since you have purchased the HYPER package, then you don’t have to worry about anything, as the cost of a parking lot is included in your ticket and your dedicated spot will be booked. Also – you can use the free, unguarded, open air parking at the Manufaktura Shopping Center, which is just few steps from our venue.

Where do I register just before the conference?

When you take the main entrance to the hotel’s convention center (with some hyperLOG flags nearby of course), the first thing you will see after getting inside will be our reception desk. Please do mind, that there will be two separate queues – one priority for attendees with HYPER tickets, one regular for guest with BASIC tickets. Remember to take your individual ticket with you, either in printed or online version. Together with you personal ID, you will also receive a set of stickers – do use them to describe yourself and scale your networking up to another level!

So, I’ve read the agenda … and what do you mean by start-up demo’s?

Young, innovative and game-changing start-ups are very important part of hyperLOG. We want to emphasize the youth’s impact on the future of logistics. This is why, we invite 10 most perspective start-ups from Europe to perform on the main stage, in front of 300 decision makes who can become their potential investors or mentors. Each start-up can perform an 8-minute long demo on the stage, showing how the product really works. We don’t accept slides, screenshots nor visuals. We need the meat 🙂 Yes, we know that 8 minutes is not much time, so we also give the start-ups an exclusive area in the foyer, just next to the conference room. Each of 10 start-ups will have a separate info-kiosk, where during 2 days they can conduct more conversations and relations. Meanwhile, the attendees will be able to show their interest in certain start-ups and vote on them via application. Later on, during the hyperPARTY, the best three will be announced and the honoured with hyperSTARTUP Awards! Now that’s something, right?

hyperPARTY? What do you mean by that?

Exactly the opposite, that you are used to when attending regular boring “banquets” after regular boring conferences. It’s high time for a real hyperPARTY. Leave your tie for another occasion, feel comfortable here. Live music, a high standard open bar, a lot of space for chill-out and fun. After the whole day of meetings and inspirations, you will invest in relations here. Top-notch but not stiff. Classy but not posh. Let’s make it legendary.

Do you issue invoices?

Of course! After you register and finalize the payment, you will receive two emails from us – one will contain the invoice (issued on data, you have provided while registering) and second with your individual entry ticket (also with data provided during registering). Due to internal processes the time of sending you the email with an invoice may take up to 7 working days, but be aim to send them asap! The entry ticket will be generated and sent to you automatically, just after the payment is done.

How about accommodation?

Well, it depends in the entry ticket you have. If you decided to go for BASIC package, the accommodation is not provided by us and you have to take care of this on your own. Of course, we recommend to stay at the wonderful Vienna House Hotel Andel’s – hyperLOG’s attendees will have a special room price offer by the end of August. On the other hand, when you’ve decided to choose the HYPER package, you have even two nights at the hotel guaranteed within the price of a ticket. Simple as that.

Seriously, how do I pronounce the word “Łódź”?

Łódź is an amazing, industrial city full of history and people who cannot spell it’s utterly polish name. If you don’t want to be like the ignorant others, you can try with “Woodge” (for beginners). Or you may want to improve your pronunciation by exercising on nearby words like: lodge, lodi, lodgement, lodgings, lloyds, loads, ladders. The modern IPA UK transcription for “Łódź” is “ɔ́dz” while the traditional IPA stands for “lɒdz”. OK, so now we can’t wait to hear you saying where’s the CEEs’s best logistics event of 2019 taking place!
