IMCC5 Accommodations

To help with your planning, IMCC5 Management is working with nearby hotels to provide access to rooms at a slightly discounted rate for IMCC5 attendees so that they may secure lodging at the hotel, or as close to hotel as possible. These hotels are less than 5 min walk from the venue, have been inspected by IMCC5 Staff to guarantee they are top quality lodgings, and will only be available to IMCC5 delegates, please book early as these rooms will be limited. Standard purchasing options are also available and may compete favorably with the reserved hotels, but there distance from the main venue will vary and their quality cannot be guaranteed. 

Don't wait to reserve your room! June and July are busy months for this area, with many celebrations taking place directly after the conference in the local area. The sooner you book, the more likely you are to secure the best rates and conveniently located hotels. 

IMCC5 will take place at the The Waterfront Hotel Kuching, and the convention spaces are conveniently located in the hotel itself. The hotel is a short walk to the historic downtown area. When you arrive at the Kuching Airport, most hotels and the venue are a short 10-15min ride away. There is a taxi service available at the main exit to the Airport, and Malaysia has Uber service, payable online or via cash with the local currency (Malaysian Ringgits, MYR). 

There is no Student (University) housing anywhere nearby the venue in Kuching. However, Kuching has dozens of options to choose from for any budget. 

The Following accommodation options are available: 

  • Sponsor Hotels - Book through the IMCC5 Registration Site (Registration site will open soon, check back for updates)
    We are working closely with the highest quality, nearby hotels to offer guaranteed lodgings for delegates during the conference (23 June 2018 - 29 June 2018) . These rooms will be purchasable through the registration website, and will offer the most comfortable experience in the most centralized location to the venue. Though we are doing our best to provide as many rooms as possible, we can only provide a limited number or rooms with this service, so please Register early if you wish to take advantage of this service. For further information please contact the IMCC5 Meeting Manager Travis Nielsen.
  • Hotels - Book directly or through a fare aggregator
    Delegates can book directly with their favorite hotels or search and book hotel rooms through popular booking sites like hotels.com, kayak or other online travel aggregators. Since fares can change daily and are based on demand, you might even find better more affordable accommodations through fare aggregator sites than the Sponsor Hotels. 
  • Alternative Lodging Options - Book through specialty sites
    Rooms are also available in Bed & Breakfasts, guesthouses, self catered properties/apartments in and around Kuching. Search sites like Airbnb or Hostel World for access to alternative lodging markets.
