HOTEL RESERVATIONS

Guest rooms at our official conference partner hotels are offered at a discounted conference rate to attendees on a first come, first served basis.

Please Note

A service agency that is in no way affiliated with EBD Group has contacted attendees of our events offering to arrange accommodation for BIO-Europe. They are NOT operating with EBD Group approval.

Though the nature of the questions asked over the phone or the wording of the email can suggest that the caller/sender is from EBD Group, or operating with the approval of EBD Group, this is not the case. The blocked rooms in our official partner hotels are only available through the conference websites and EBD would never call delegates in order to promote hotel rooms or to collect credit card details.
