    The ICAR 2012 Vancouver Congress Organizing Committee has reserved hotel rooms in various hotels in different price categories to suit all budgets. In addition to all hotels being located within the city centre, they are also all within walking distance of the Vancouver Convention Centre.

    In order to benefit from the ICAR 2012 negotiated rates, please note that we will start to accept reservations in January 2012.

    The Official Congress Hotels were chosen for the numerous benefits they offered the ICAR 2012 Vancouver Congress. We would like to request your assistance and support of ICAR 2012 by booking your hotel accommodation through the Congress Organizer exclusively at the Official Congress Hotels. Accommodation reserved outside the Official Congress Hotel room blocks exposes the Congress to severe financial penalties. Your loyalty and cooperation is greatly appreciated!

    Should there be any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact
