2015 G-7 summit and Bilderberg Conference expected to cause some travel delays and disruptions

The 2015 G-7 economic summit will take place on June 7-8, 2015, in Elmau Bavaria, Germany. To avoid the risk of violent protests by anti-G7 demonstrators, German police have sealed off access to the Shloss Elmau. Temporary land border checks will monitor the movement of people between countries in the Schengen area, particularly Germany’s border with Austria and the Czech Republic.

On June 10-14, 2015, the Bilderberg Conference, an annual international economic conference, will be held in Telfs, Tyrol, at the Interalpen-Hotel.
