Accommodations

 

Barcelona is a city that offers a wide range of accommodation options, with a huge diversity of types and prices. From hostels to luxury hotels. From apartments to individual rooms.

The organization has pre-booked a few hotels that you can book though the Registration/Accommodation form. You will find five proposals close to the venue. The Technical Secretariat (Grupo Pacífico) manages all issues with the reservations.

If you choose to book the accommodation by yourself, you can find hotel browsers, web addresses to tourist information webs, and browsers for university residences and youth hostels below. We hope this information will help you to find a proposal that best fits your requirements. A list of hotels in the neighborhood of the conference venue is also provided.

 

ACCOMODATION THROUGH 29th IBC TECHNICAL SECRETARIAT

Accommodation reservations may be made when completing the accommodation form from the 29th IBC website.

 

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

We have block-booked rooms in a range of hotels in different price categories for the dates from 7th to 13th July 2018. Previous dates or late departures are subject to hotel availability. In case that the selected hotel is fully booked, we will try to assign you an available hotel, if possible, with similar characteristics, (category and prices).

Hotel reservations will be booked on a first-come first-served basis upon receipt of the corresponding payment. We advise all participants to request their hotel reservations as soon as possible to guarantee accommodation.

The online form only allows one hotel booking. If you need accommodation for a group (more than 10 rooms) or if you have any questions, please contact the Technical Secretariat through ibc2018@pacifico-meetings.com.
