ICCB 2017 Accommodations
To help with your planning, ICCB management company MCI partnered with Expedia to create a special hotel booking site for ICCB attendees so that they may secure lodging at slightly discounted rates. Standard purchasing options are also available and may compete favorably with the ICCB booking service.
Don't wait long to reserve your room! July is a busy month. The sooner you book, the more likely you are to secure the best rates and conveniently located hotels.
ICCB 2017 will take place at the Cartagena de Indias Convention Center, which is a short walk to the old historic city center. When you arrive at the Cartagena airport, most hotels are a short 10-15 minutes ride away. Taxis/Uber are affordable and the most convenient mode of transportation.
Student (university) housing is unfortunately not available in Cartagena, in July. However, the city has dozens of options to choose from for any budget.
The following accommodation options are available:
- Hotels - Book through official ICCB accommodations link
Most Cartagena housing offer is available at discounted rate for ICCB attendees on the days immediately before and during the Congress (23/07/2017-28/07/2017) through this site. Use this special ICCB attendee booking service to search and book your room. You must create a profile to use this service. To manage your booking online, create a User Account on the profile page. For any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Hotels - Book directly or through fare aggregator
Attendees can book directly with their favorite hotels or search and book hotel rooms through popular bookings sites like hotels.com, orbitz, or other online hotel aggregators. Since fares can change daily and are based on demand, you might even find better deals through fare aggregator sites than the special ICCB booking page.
- Alternative Lodging Option - Book through specialty sites
Rooms are also available in bed & breakfasts, guesthouses, self-catered properties/apartments in and around Cartagena. Search sites like Airbnb or Hostel World for access to alternative lodging markets.
