Everything you need to know before you go

Travel information

The destination airport for our first RHTE is again Barcelona (BCN) so all should be able to book price worthy flights and arrive in time without any difficulties. For some of you there might be even cheaper flights to/from airport REUS (smaller but closer to the venue). For those coming in from Madrid it will make most sense to take the train (AVE 03093) to Tarragona – arriving there at 11:57h.

The RHTE starts on Monday September 25 in the afternoon and ends on Friday September 29 at 12:30. Everybody should book flights arriving at BCN Monday before noon and departing Friday after 16:00.

  1. Book a price worthy fare
  2. Arrival at airport latest 12:00 CET on Monday
  3. Departure from airport not before 16:00 CET Friday

If you cannot find a reasonable priced flight on the required travel dates and within the timeframe, please do not book a flight on another day or time before you have been in contact with Esther Dalderup (esther@redhat.com) to discuss the matter. Approval of your manager is not sufficient.

Visa
In case you need an invitation letter to apply for visa please contact Esther Dalderup (esther@redhat.com) as soon as possible.

Shuttles will be going from BCN airport to the venue on Monday September 25. Shuttles will take you back to the airport on departure day Friday September 29 as well. Detailed information will be published onsite and online shortly prior to departure.

Transfer time between BCN airport and venue: around 1 hour.

Transfers are scheduled based on flight arrival times.
Anyone traveling to Barcelona on earlier date/time and requested to be scheduled for a seat in shuttle, should look for their individual names in the shuttle schedule. It is not possible to just hop on any shuttle randomly; you would take somebody else’s seat doing that! Make sure to come to the Terminal that your name is listed for – not to the other one! They are not connected!

For those coming in from Madrid it will make most sense to take the train (AVE 03093) to AVE station Camp de Tarragona – arriving there at 11:57h.

There will be a shuttle service from Tarragona train station (AVE station: Camp de Tarragona) to the venue. If you are based in Spain and drive to the venue by car or travel by train (to Tarragona) please indicate such clearly in the registration form.

Planning on arriving before the event starts? Or do you want to extend your stay in Spain after the event?

In case of a private extended stay in the area you need to inform the event organization about details as such influences the logistics of the organization. You can do this by putting details in the online registration form (field: Additional travel information).

Any longer stay prior or after event is considered to be a private extension of your stay (not paid by Red Hat) unless prior approval by Hans or Esther – approval of your manager is not sufficient.

For the team building activity make sure to bring some comfortable shoes that you can walk in for a longer time!

Dress code - as always - the Red Hat way: anything between business casual and business informal is perfect. Also make sure to bring something that is comfortable enough to DANCE ALL NIGHT LONG in!
