Make Your Hotel Reservation Today!

To facilitate the accommodation the congress organizing committee has appointed Conferium, professionals' team in congress management, to offer you guaranteed hotel accommodation at a competitive price. Reservations are integrated to the registration process. Rooms should be booked at the same time as you will register for the congress.

Booking within the official Photonics North 2017 block is the best way to receive exclusive discounted hotel rates. Our low rates beat any you’ll find on the Internet or by calling the hotels directly. Moreover, unlike hotel search websites, no deposit is required and you can modify or cancel your reservation until 72h before the event. However, these are not the only reasons to use the official Photonics North 2017 block :

  • No pre-payment is required; book today, and don't pay anything until you check-out.
  • No charge for modifying hotel reservation as many times as you need.
  • No penalty fees for canceling your reservation 72h prior to the event.
  • Friendly and accessible person-to-person customer service.
  • Garanteed room reservation: no hotel transfer due to overbooking.

Don’t Be Fooled!

Many Housing Companies will pretend to be Photonics North vendors or promise you discounted hotel reservation rates.  Don’t be fooled.  These vendors are not Photonics North approved nor vetted by Management.  Booking with these vendors does not guarantee you the Photonics North Customer Services when reservation issues arise. We strongly encourage you and your colleagues to reserve your hotel rooms through Photonics North online registration.  Photonics North cannot guarantee room rates or availability by any other company or representative. While other hotel resellers may contact you offering housing options, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the event and entering into financial agreements with such companies may have costly consequences.

How to book your room

  • While online registering OR
  • By calling (418) 522-8182 or (800) 618-8182 #30
