Hotel Accommodation

K.I.T. Group has been appointed as the official and exclusive housing agent for the ESICM LIVES Annual Congress 2018. Your hotel reservations will be part of the congress block and the K.I.T. Group will be available to provide support before the congress as well as onsite.

ESICM strongly recommends delegates to book via the K.I.T. Group, as we are aware of fraudulent groups acting as housing agents that claim to be associated with the congress. Regretfully, we cannot offer any support with any bookings made via these fraudulent companies.

Hotels in Paris
A number of hotels in different categories have been pre-booked at preferential rates for the congress. Rates include breakfast, local VAT and city tax. The hotels are located both near the congress venue and in the city center with convenient and fast routes to the congress venue.

Book your hotel accommodation ahead of time and benefit from the best rates and selections.

Group Bookings
Please note that group reservations, 10 rooms or more, will be handled with separate contracts and separate regulations. Please contact the Hotel Department for further information.
