How to book a room

Hotel accommodation can be booked via the online booking form.

An early hotel reservation is strongly recommended to optimize your accommodation arrangements, as October is a popular congress period for Thessaloniki and most hotels are running in high occupancy.

It is highly recommended that you book your accommodation through the meeting’s online reservation platform in order to benefit from the following:

  • Competitive rates
  • Professional attendance to your personal requirements
  • Accurate and up-to-date answers to your questions within 48 hours.

Please do not contact the hotels directly as the reservations are held by ERA Ltd.
In case of later arrival other than reserved please inform ERA Ltd in order to guarantee your reservation.

A minimum three-night stay is required.
Reservations must be received by June 30, 2018, the latest. After this date your reservation will be subject to hotels’ availability.


Beware of fraudulent hotel agencies

Please be aware that in the past, fraudulent hotel agencies have solicited our participants, speakers, committees members, sponsors and exhibitors. Agencies tend to call on behalf of the actual conference and offer accommodation at advantageous rates. Era Ltd. is the only appointed EES 2018 Accommodation Agent and we recommend you to book directly with us. We also strongly advise you not to respond to any other direct offers (especially via phone calls). Please do not provide any personal details or credit card details to any third party (over the phone or by email).
