As you know the C4E Forum aims at moving around the Central and Eastern Europe for each of the editions. In 2018 we have been to Poland, earlier in 2016 to Bulgaria. The 2020 edition will take place in Romania.
Once again we have looked for a agreat and interesting location situated out of big cities that would enable us full focus on energy efficiency related topics. We believe that the best location that suits our needs is Ana Hotels Poiana Brasov.
It is 4-star spa hotel, situated just a few steps from the mountains and a short distance from Bran Castle and other famous landmarks in the Transylvania region.
The hotel is surrounded by a forest and has great views over the mountains. It offers a wide range of services in a hotel Spa and also plenty of outdoor activities (think of walking, hiking, running etc. during DIY sessions!!!).
This mountain resort is located at about two and a half hour drive from the Bucharest airport. For the convenience of all participants, airport transfers will be arranged (please don’t forget to tick when registering for the event).
Ana Hotels is situated at 15 km from Brasov, at Valea Draga, 500001, Poiana Brasov, Brasov, Romania, tel. +40 268 407 330.
From Bucharest: use the DN1 road between Bucharest and Brasov and then from Brasov to Ana Hotels take the Drumul Poienii (Poienii Road).
Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport is situated at 158 km away from Ana Hotels Poiana Brasov. A transfer from either airport takes about 2,5 hrs by taxi or rental car.
We will arrange for shuttle buses on Wednesday 3 June and Saturday 6 June, timing will be announced close to the event.
