Are the participants of your event spending the night in Bern? The Meeting Team at the Bern Convention Bureau can help you make the hotel reservations.
When it comes to the booking of the hotel rooms, you can choose from two options:
Make it easier for the participants to find a hotel room by putting a booking link on your website. The participants book their own rooms (with the credit card as a guarantee) and pay for them once they’re there. The team at the Bern Convention Bureau takes care of the room quota and regularly informs you about the online bookings and the current room quota. There are no financial risks for you if rooms are not booked.
You are in charge of the room quota and send us a list of participants. We contact you one day ahead of the deadline and inform you about the cancellation policy. You can choose how many rooms you would like to keep in the quota and which rooms should be cancelled.
There are two payment options for option 2:
- The entire costs are payed in advance by the first deadline (30 days before the event). All invoices will be sent as early as possible. Changes can be credited or invoiced, respectively, after the event. We reserve the right to cancel booked services if the advance payment is not transferred by the set deadline.
- All costs for the overnight stays are settled at the hotel before departure, your credit card is used solely as a guarantee for the hotel. The hotel is entitled to charge accommodation costs to the indicated credit card in the case of late cancellations or non-appearance.
The team at the Bern Convention Bureau works with the web-based event and meeting management software “e-vent 6” and can take the participant registration for the entire event, including complementary activities, off your hands. All you need to do is to add the link provided by us to your website, and interested parties can start registering.
Getting to the event quickly and comfortably: To make sure your event goes just as planned, we will take care of organizing all transfers. Be it for an excursion or for getting to the meeting – the Bern Convention Bureau works with local companies and guarantees comfortable and safe trips, no matter the group size. By the way: If desired (and for a fee), VIP guests are picked up directly from the aeroplane on the runway at Geneva, Basel, Zurich and Bern airports. We guarantee a discreet arrival at the airport.
