The Travel Club is the only official travel agent of Paper One Show.

There are a number of rogue travel agencies who are targeting customers in the run up to trade fairs, offering help with accommodation.

A number have already tried to reach out to Paper One Show exhibitors. They falsely claim to represent Paper One Show and that we have authorized them to talk to you. This is not true.

We believe they are dishonest and strongly recommend you not book any accommodation with them.

We have been informed that Exhibition Travel Bureau and others have contacted a few exhibitors via email or by phone, offering discounted fees for accommodation.
We are doing all we can to make these emails stop and apologise to all our exhibitors for the inconvenience caused.

Please do not book any accommodation with these companies as they have no business relationship with Paper One Show

Taxi

If you are flying into Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport, you will have no trouble getting a taxi at the curb. There are dozens of taxi drivers just waiting for passengers to pick up. To go somewhere in the city of Beirut from the airport, it will probably cost you about $20-$30 (be aware of a scam), depending on how far you go and the amount of people you are traveling with . If you need to go somewhere else in Lebanon that is further away from the city, it will cost you a bit more money. (https://www.taxifarefinder.com)

If you need a taxi anywhere else in the city, it is not too hard to find one during the day. At night it can be a little bit harder, especially if it is very late.

A very efficient alternative is to book a taxi online with one of the reputable taxi firms that has an online booking service. (like  allotaxi.com.lb )

You can also use UBER for airport transfer.
