Speakers and guest
There are quite a few airlines that fly to and from Iceland. You can use sites like dohop.com or similar to find the best way for you to get to and from the country.
All flights land at Keflavik airport (KEF)which is around 40-50 min drive from Reykjavík. Many airlines say Reykjavik Airport in their booking information but it is still the same place. There is a domestic airport in Reykjavík called Reykjavík airport but there are no international flights to and from there except private flights or in an emergency. Don't be alarmed if your flight information says either names you are flying in to Keflavík. With this in mind you need to get to Reykjavík from the airport. The cheapest way to get there is by bus. You can buy your ticket in advance or at the airport. More information about the buses can be found here. The bus ticket will cost you around $22 and for around $4 more you can get at transfer to most major hotels. You can also take a taxi but be aware that it will most likely cost you around $150 (ask before you drive off to be sure).
There is no preferred hotel for the event. The one closest to the venue is Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura but there is easy access to the venue by foot, bus or taxi from all hotels in the downtown Reykjvík area. Hotels in Iceland are not cheap so look around for good deal and check out other options such as B&B, hostels or airbnb.
