While the venue of the conference is the campus of PUC-Rio, the official travel agency of EIBA 2015 conference – FollowUp Tour – has negotiated special rates with some specific hotels.

The pick-up / drop-off buses will stop only at some of these hotels in order to transport conference delegates to / from PUC-Rio and to / from the Gala Dinner. The following are the official hotels for pick-up/drop-off (duly marked with an icon of a bus on the reservation page ahead):

  • Everest Rio (in Ipanema, 3.5 km from PUC-Rio)
  • Marina Palace (In Leblon, 2.1 km from PUC-Rio)
  • Pestana Rio Atlântica (in Copacabana, 5.4 km from PUC-Rio)

ATTENTION: Please note that EIBA 2015 conference delegates may opt to stay at other hotels or make their own accommodation arrangements instead of choosing one of the pick-up/drop-off conference hotels – although the shuttle buses will only be stopping at the official conference hotels. All delegates are advised to book their accommodation well in advance in order to benefit from potential discounts and availability options. (This is the main reason why the deadline for submissions is earlier this year – that is, to allow EIBA 2015 delegates the benefits of greater flexibility and lower costs when making their travel bookings.)

WARNING: We bring to your attention the need to be careful when booking hotels and other travel arrangements on-line or otherwise. It is important to use only official channels and secure websites when making your bookings and payments. Under no circumstances should you provide your credit card number and/or personal details, codes, etc. to third parties via phone or even e-mail. Travel bookings are not typically solicited or confirmed via phone, nor are credit card numbers usually requested via this means (and if they are, extreme caution is advised prior to replying to such requests as they may be fraudulent).
