Conference Accommodation

We are now working with a specialist agency to offer a range of hotels for all ACPIL conferences, with prices lower than many online booking engines. You will find a number of hotels at various prices, but the designated Conference Hotel for ECKM is EUROSTARS ANGLI, Carrer d'Anglí, 60, 08017 Barcelona. (A 10 minute walk to the venue).  This is usually  where pre-conference drinks are held and where any transportation required for the conference dinner will run from.
