A quota of rooms has been reserved for the EMOP participants in city centre hotels. The reservations will be made on “first come, first served” basis. Please note that July is a holiday month in Finland and very busy time for the hotels with many events taking place in the city. We therefore strongly recommend early booking! The hotel quotas are valid until two-three months before the congress. After that we cannot guarantee the availability of the hotel rooms, but will assist you in finding accommodation. The hotel fees include breakfast, service and VAT. All hotel fees are payable directly to the hotels.
Please mark your hotel reservation on the congress registration form (will be available in February). Your reservation will be confirmed together with your participation. Kindly inform the Congress Office of any changes in your accommodation reservation (congress-office@utu.fi).
