WARNING

We would like to make you aware of a situation that has been brought to our attention. There is a company, Exhibition Housing Management (EHM), who has been contacting attendees of upcoming events to assist with hotel reservations.

Please note that only GUARANT International, as the official Symposium Secretariat, is authorized to offer hotel reservation services for the 28th International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs.

In case you are contacted by any other companies/ unknown vendors by phone or emails, we urge all attendees not to sign anything or enter into any conversation with them or reply to any emails.

 

GUARANT International (further referred to also as the Symposium Secretariat) has been appointed as the official hotel accommodation agent for the 28th International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD 2016) and will handle all related arrangements.

How to make a hotel reservation

To make a hotel reservation, it is necessary to fill in the Online Accommodation Form

Please note that the online Accommodation Form is only accessible with a password. Simply fill in the Personal Data Form and a password will be sent to you. Your password is the same for all online forms.

Reservations will be processed on a “first come, first-served” basis. Due to heavy demand and the fact that distribution of rooms in many hotels is limited, please book your accommodation as soon as possible.

All rates quoted are per room per night including breakfast and 15% VAT. Should VAT change before the beginning of the Symposium, the Symposium Secretariat will automatically change the price of your hotel room and inform you in writing about the new rate.

Extras are to be paid directly at the hotel reception before departure.
