Airport Shuttle Service
SIGGRAPH 2008 has partnered with SuperShuttle to offer shuttle service to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). SIGGRAPH 2008 attendees receive a $2 discount on one-way trips and a $4 discount for round trips when they book service through the SuperShuttle web site (select LAX, enter your first and last names, and the SIGGRAPH 2008 discount will appear). These discounts are valid from 6 August until 21 August 21 2008.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The SIGGRAPH 2008 Shuttle service is available only to attendees who register at official conference hotels through the SIGGRAPH 2008 hotel reservation system. Those attendees will receive a wristband upon check-in that allows them to board the shuttle buses. Attendees who are not registered at official conference hotels will be allowed to purchase wristbands. Attendees without wristbands will not be allowed to use the shuttle service.
