Warning against misleading offers for Congress accomodation

Dear delegates of ESOMAR Congress 2016,

We have been made aware that some Congress delegates have received letter correspondence which offers support on accommodation arrangements for this event. The company/companies approaching delegates claim that they partner with ESOMAR and are able to provide preferential rates for hotel bookings, often providing a booking form or credit card form to secure the booking. Please ignore it!

We would like to make it clear that ESOMAR has only partnered with the Hyatt Regency hotel for accommodation arrangements and any bookings should be channeled via the ESOMAR website and the accommodation booking page provided by us (below) or directly via the hotel's website.

Note that ESOMAR does not supply information to 3rd parties and any contact for an ESOMAR related or partnered service will always come through official ESOMAR channels.

The 2016 ESOMAR Congress will be held in the Hyatt Regency, conveniently located in vibrant downtown New Orleans and just 12 miles from the Louis Armstrong International Airport. The venue is within easy walking distance of the French Quarter, Arts District and the scenic Mississippi Riverfront, all just under one mile from the hotel.

The award-winning hotel has 200,000 square feet of events space and 1,193 spacious guest rooms with stunning city views.

Voted Best Convention Hotel winner in 2015, the Hyatt Regency is well equipped for the business traveler, featuring an array of luxury business services and high-speed internet access throughout.
