We understand that attending a conference requires careful planning, including finding suitable accommodations. While we don't offer a hotel booking service, we've compiled a non-exhaustive list of hotels for different budgets in the city to assist you in making your own arrangements. We encourage you to explore additional options based on your specific preferences and requirements. Please note that the conference venue is not in the city center, though.

We advise securing your accommodations well in advance to guarantee availability, as the city can be quite busy during conference and trade fair periods. Booking early will also allow you to take advantage of any special rates or discounts that may be offered.

Please note that participants are responsible for their own hotel bookings and cancellations.
