The Organizing Secretariat OIC srl has selected the best hotels in Florence with negotiated rates and direct access to the Congress Centre.

WARNING:
If any other company or agency offering housing for the event in Florence contacts you, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent European Glaucoma Society in any way, nor they have access to the official room blocks or rates contracted by OIC srl. 

We strongly recommend proceeding with extreme caution in communication with these unauthorised companies and we invite you to avoid providing any personal information on the phone.

OIC srl is appointed as the sole authorised booking agent for the upcoming EGS Congress from 19th to 22nd May 2018.

Attendees are recommended to reserve hotel accommodation as soon as possible in order to have the best choice of available hotels.

The indicated room/night rates and availabilities are only applicable for reservations made through the Organizing Secretariat OIC., and received by 31 March 2018 at the latest. After this date, the Organising Secretariat OIC cannot guarantee any reservation, even though all efforts will be made to satisfy the requests upon availability.

Reservations will be confirmed by e-mail only upon receipt of the full pre-payment; in order to avoid any disappointment early bookings are recommended (phone reservations are not accepted).
