Title: Registration and Hotel Rooms
Post by: Jumpy on 03.12.2013, 09:38:16
Hi all!

As you all know, Eurofurence has moved to the Estrel (http://www.estrel.com) in Berlin. The Estrel is a large hotel with a convention center and a daily music show, and is thus equipped to take over some things that we - out of necessity - used to organize ourselves before. In 2014, this has lead to several changes regarding registration and booking and paying for your hotel room which I've summarized here.

Those of you who regularly attend conventions in the USA will recognize many of the new procedures. We are now much more like a US convention.

How does registration and booking hotel rooms work?

New hotel booking procedure:


New EF registration procedure:


Otherwise, registration for the convention remains unchanged. Without ties to a limited supply of hotel rooms, we can accept registrations quickly, there will not be the need for a waiting list. The amount of money you owe Eurofurence will be drastically reduced in most cases, and you will have to pay this amount within two weeks of making your registration, or you will be cancelled.  If you wish to book a hotel room, you can do so once we have accepted your registration. This way you can delay paying us until you have secured a hotel room. The same mail that tells you what and how to pay us will also contain the hotel reservation details and link.

Credit cards (Mastercard, VISA incl. VISA Electron) are now the preferred payment method for your registration fee. There is no longer a credit card fee for using this payment method. Note that unlike the Estrel hotel, Eurofurence cannot accept American Express cards.

How do I reserve a hotel room and how do I pay for my hotel room?
