General Information about Hotel Bookings

MCI has reserved a large number of hotel rooms at very competitive rates in various hotels in different price categories. The majority of the hotels are located either in the city centre or in proximity to the International Conference Center Geneva (CICG), and are on a large number of bus lines. The journey from the city centre takes approximately 10 minutes by bus. All delegates staying in a hotel in the Canton of Geneva will receive a free public transportation pass.

Geneva attracts many tourists, and due to the high demand for accommodation during this period, reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend booking before Tuesday 21 May 2013 to ensure availability.

MCI acts as an agent for accommodation bookings and ICPIC accepts no responsibility for any recommendations given or any transactions made.

Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis. Availability of rooms in each category is limited. Name of persons sharing rooms must be indicated. Rates are in Swiss Francs (CHF) and are intended per room, per night, breakfast, service, city tax and VAT included.

If you need additional dates for your hotel reservation out of the congress dates, please contact directly MCI Suisse S.A. at:
