We recognize that most delegates attending conferences in Vancouver prefer to book independently often taking advantage of special online rates and booking sites. The large volume and variety of hotel accommodations within the downtown core supports this desire.
We have worked together with Tourism Vancouver and the Vancouver Convention Centre to identify a wide range of accommodation options for our delegates and their families and friends. This includes a series of recommended hotels within close proximity to the Vancouver Convention Centre that have provided courtesy bookings for our Congress. We have also outlined alternative housing options (such as Airbnb). Delegates are encouraged to book directly with the hotel or through their preferred travel agencies or online booking services to receive the best rates. Registrants are responsible for their own hotel, travel, and insurance related expenses.
Please feel free to contact our team at: info@ISPAH2020.com (1-604-822-1337) if you have any difficulties finding suitable accommodations for your stay. Please note that all rates are subject to availability as determined by each hotel.
