Prague Public Transportation

Prague's public transportation system has been rated as fifth in the world in the Sustainable Cities Mobility Index 2017 (compiled by Arcadis). The swift and efficient metro is in operation from 500-0000, and there are special night tram and bus services. Prague's Congress Center is located next to the Vysehrad metro station and is two stops (4 minutes) from the historic city center. It is 40 minutes by public transport from the airport. A ticket to use the public transport system for free will be distributed to all attendees onsite at the Congress Centre. More information will be provided before the meeting.

CYTO Priority Points System

Priority points are the participation and loyalty reward system for CYTO Exhibitors and Sponsors.  Accumulated points determine space selection order for next year's Congress.

Exhibitions accumulate Priority Points in three ways:

  1. Exhibit at the CYTO Congress 
  2. Become a Sponsor
  3. Host a commercial tutorial during the CYTO Congress
How are Priority Points accumulated with the purchase of exhibit space?

Companies receive one point per booth purchased, for a maximum of five points.  In the case of company mergers, exhibit management will use the highest number of years exhibited in calculating priority points. The priority point deadline to submit your application is Monday, December 18, 2017.  After December 18, 2017 we will assign by date received.


Cancellation or Reduction

Notification of an exhibitor's decision to cancel or reduce space must be made in writing. The effective date of space cancellation or reduction will be the date on which a written notice is received by Exhibit Management.

If space is canceled or reduced prior to January 4, 2018 50% of the cost of space will be retained.  No refunds will be given for any cancellations or reductions received after January 5, 2018; company will be responsible for full cost of space. 


Location Relative to Other Exhibits

Exhibitors may use the exhibit application to designate their preference for location near other companies or their wish not to be adjacent to or opposite designated companies.  These requests will be honored to the greatest extent possible in conjunction with assignment priorities and requests for specific locations on the floor. Every effort will be made not to relocate an exhibitor’s booth. However, should relocation be deemed necessary, the exhibitor will be notified.

The badge must be in the name of the exhibiting employee only.  If you misplace the badge during the meeting you must purchase a replacement. Any additional Attendee Badge  that you require can be purchased at the applicable Congress rate based on the membership category of the individual and date of purchase. For example, if the attendee is not a member of ISAC, the individual can register at the nonmember rate, plus applicable VAT. Please refer to registration deadlines listed at http://cytoconference.org/2018/Registration/Registration-Information.aspx as fees vary for early, advance, and onsite registration.
