Prices quoted are per room per night and include accommodation, buffet breakfast, hotel service charge and value added tax (VAT). Booking for these contingents should be made through the congress secretariat in connection with registration for the congress. All hotel reservations, especially after 15 April 2010, will be subject to availability.

There are other hotels within convenient distance as well, e.g. Hotel Arthur, Hotel Omena and Hostel Satakuntatalo. Many hotels offer special rates when booking on the web. If you prefer, you can make your own booking directly with the hotel. You should, however, book your accommodation in good time.

Hotel deposit

For the contingents, a hotel deposit of one night should be paid in advance together with the congress fees. The hotel deposit will be deducted from the total cost of accommodation. The remaining hotel payment will be charged at the hotel upon check-out. The hotel deposit is non-refundable if the cancellation is made after 15 April 2010. Possible cancellations or changes to reservations should be made in writing by email, telefax or airmail to the congress secretariat.

General conditions

The hotel reservation will be completed based on request which, however, will be subject to availability. Confirmation for hotel accommodation will be included in the confirmation letter confirming the participation for the congress. No hotel vouchers will be needed since the congress secretariat will transfer the hotel deposit amounts to each hotel and the deposit amounts will be deducted from the remaining hotel invoice.
     Participants are requested to pay their personal expenses directly to the hotel at latest when checking out. Please indicate on the registration form if arrival at the hotel is scheduled after 18:00 so the congress secretariat can inform the hotel about your late arrival. The regular check-out time is 12:00.
