If you need a place to sleep during your visit in Bern, we have an arrangement with a partner hotel. The IBIS Budget Hotel is located next to the tram station “Guisanplatz Expo”, from where it only takes 10 minutes to get to the city center and less than 20 minutes to reach the Conference venue.

You’ll share a room with two other delegates. If you are already a group of three people and want to stay together, please fill out the corresponding option in the application form. If you are not exactly 3, we will assign you to a room. We will do our best to keep the rooms separated by gender. If you have strong objections to sharing a room with delegates of the opposite gender, please check the box in the application.

The costs for both nights together are 25 CHF and will be charged with your Delegate Fee. The hotel is limited to 70 places, it’s first applied first served. However, since we pay a part of the costs for each delegate staying at the hotel, we ask you to understand that the Hotel Fee cannot be refunded.
