Delegates are responsible for booking their own accommodation.  To help in this area, we have made arrangements with the Belfast Visitor and Convention Bureau (BVCB) to provide a dedicated online booking facility for a number of local hotels as well as rooms within the university student Halls of Residence at Queen’s Elms.  Preferential rates have been negotiated with the hotels and student rooms are offered as a cheaper option.  We advise early booking as these special arrangements will not be guaranteed much beyond the end of June 2008 (ie rooms held for conference delegates will be released 6 weeks before conference).

Delegates can make their own accommodation arrangements by clicking the following link:

Alternatively, delegates may create new or amend existing reservations via the link: and entering the following event code: BLFXRAYLASERS2008
