Invitation, Hotel Booking and Registration:

At the HFCC Steering Board on Friday 25th May, the hosts of the upcoming HFCC conference in Paris informed us that the number of hotel registrations at the conference hotel has been very low so far. The hotel has informed us that they have block-booked enough rooms for participants to the HFCC conference. However, these rooms can only be held until 15th June. After this date, they will be available for general booking. As the hotel only has 130 rooms, participants to the conference are strongly urged to complete their registration by 15th June, in order to secure their room for the duration of the conference. Otherwise they may have to seek alternative, more expensive accommodation elsewhere and still have to pay the daily conference package of 70 EUR per delegate.

Notes: - If you need an official invitation for visa purposes, contact Jeff White at the NASB (radiomiami9cs.com).
- Please, submit both the Booking Form (directly to the hotel) and the Conference Registration Form.

Conference Hotel: Mercure Porte d'Orleans Hotel in Montrouge, a southern suburb of Paris (exact address: 13 rue Francois Ory, 92120 Montrouge, France).

Incidentally, this is the same hotel where a previous HFCC conference was held in 1994. The hotel is much closer to Orly airport than to Charles de Gaulle airport. There is free wireless Internet access in all hotel guest rooms and meeting rooms.

Hotel Rate: 125 euros per night for a single room (one person), including breakfast, for the nights of August 27, 28, 29 and 30. 105 euros per night for the nights of August 24, 25, 26, 31 and September 1. 10 euros extra for a second person in the room.

Conference Fees: The HFCC Conference fee will be only 50 euros, payable in cash to the HFCC Conference registration desk upon arrival. However, similar to the B10 Conference in Switzerland, the hotel charges a daily conference delegate rate of 70 euros per person per day for Monday-Friday, August 27-31 (i.e. a total of 350 euros for the week). This amount will be charged to your hotel bill. The hotel's daily conference delegate rate includes three coffee breaks, a three-course lunch with mineral water and coffee, and the cost of meeting rooms, audiovisual equipment, etc.

Mercure guest room

Deadline for Conference Registration: The Mercure Hotel has a strict deadline of June 15 for conference registration. You must send your hotel registration form by June 15 with credit card details in order to guarantee your reservation. (Reservations can be canceled without penalty until July 10.)

Further details about the conference and the agenda will be published here in the coming weeks. Specific questions may be directed to Jeff White at the NASB (radiomiami9cs.com).
