Re: Accommodation for the 6th HAP General Assembly – Geneva 23-24 April 2008
Please be advised that all Geneva hotels already predict that they will be fully
booked during the HAP General Assembly and that it may prove to be difficult to
find last minute hotel accommodation. With that warning in mind I have taken an
option on some rooms in hotels in the proximity of the HAP office. The deadline for
confirming these pre-bookings is 1 April. After 1 April the hotels will resell these
SO PLEASE LET ME KNOW BEFORE 1 APRIL IF YOU WANT ME TO
CONFIRM A ROOM IN ONE OF THE HOTELS IN YOUR NAME.
Please also let me know your arrival and departure date if you know your flight
details already. The hotel will probably ask for a credit card number (and expiry
date) as a guarantee.
After 1 April, or if you rather make your own booking, please see the website of the
Geneva tourist office www.geneve-tourisme.ch for available hotel accommodation
and on-line booking.
I look forward meeting you next month,
With best regards,
