We strongly encourage all participants to book their hotels as soon as possible. As of now, the identified hotels all have around thirty rooms available, however, it’s important to note that this availability can change within 24 hours. To ensure your accommodation during the event, we highly recommend you make your reservation as soon as possible

There are other hotels available in the region such as Hôtel Mercure Nice Promenade des Anglais, Le Splendid, AC Hotel by Marriott Nice etc. but due to the high demand in June, their prices may be high, and somme rooms may be booked quickly.

Please note that there are shuttles provided to the event venue near to the 5 recommended hotels (less than 5 minutes on foot). If you decide to choose another hotel, you will need to make your way to the shuttle stop or go directly to the event venue.
