HCII 2013: Accommodation

As one of the world’s busiest tourist destinations, the city of Las Vegas offers just about everything – spectacular shows, shops and restaurants, theme park attractions, and the natural beauty of the surrounding lakes, parks and canyons.
The Mirage, located on Las Vegas Strip, is recommended as the main hotel of the Conference.

Many of the guest rooms offered are available with breathtaking views of the tropical pool, majestic mountains or the Las Vegas Strip. The Mirage, an AAA Four Diamond Award-winning resort, completed a fresh new makeover of all guest rooms in August 2008. These smartly redesigned rooms feature stylish comfort complemented with ultra-modern amenities and chic upgrades.

A limited number of rooms have been reserved to be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, while reduced rates have been agreed with the Hotel. These rates are valid for all Conference participants for the duration of the Conference as well as for 3 additional days, before and / or after the Conference, based on availability. Please also note that there is a cut off for reservations thirty days before the Conference. Any requests after that time will be placed on a space available basis.
