There are regular trains from the airport to Genval. Detailed information can be seen on the National Railway Company of Belgium (click for NMBS/SNCB website) or by clicking here:  Brussels Airport to Genval B Station. The conference hotel is about a 12 minute walk from the Genval B train station.

Note:  walking is not recommended if you have luggage, due to hills along this path. If you have no luggage, this is a pleasant walk. Rather than take the Google-calculated path, you might rather follow Rue de Rosieres to Avenue du Lac to the lake and take the walking path. It's a pleasant stroll.
