Important Hotel Information
Why stay within the SPIE Photonics Europe Room Block?
It’s better for you in the Block
BEWARE of Housing Pirates

Why stay within the SPIE Photonics Europe Room Block?
“Around the Block” (booking a hotel not listed in the SPIE Housing options, or booking a hotel room at one of the listed hotels but not through the official SPIE Photonics Europe hotel reservation page) booking impacts association revenue both directly, through attrition fees charged to SPIE for unused pre-contracted rooms, and indirectly through the loss of negotiation leverage for meeting space, dates and rates in subsequent years. Guaranteeing room blocks gives associations the opportunity to negotiate concessions, such as better room rates, free Internet, less expensive food and beverage, number of meeting rooms, affiliate meeting space, gym access, etc. Hotel bookings are a key component in how this leverage is measured, and ‘around the block’ booking decreases the association’s negotiating power–ultimately making the meeting more expensive. None of us wants to see higher attendance costs.

It’s better for you in the Block
SPIE staff have worked with the hotels to develop individual incentives (beyond “doing it for the good of the Association”). Staying within the block has the following benefits for event meeting attendees:

Lowest Rates – Important discounts on room rates and special amenities are available (such as guest room internet and health club access)
Networking – Easily network with friends, colleagues, and representatives of exhibiting companies by staying in the hotels they are staying in so your paths will cross organically
Guaranteed room reservations – and a hotel reservation agency to back up your reservation. You’ve Got Advocates When You Book in the Block – If you have any problem or negative experience related to housing SPIE, our hotel reservation agency, ConferenceDirect, will act on your behalf to correct problems
Keep costs low – Help keep overall event costs as low as possible for future events

SPIE recognizes that its event attendees have a number of options when securing hotel accommodations for Photonics Europe. If you require a hotel in Brussels, we recommend you reserve your room through the our official hotel reservation site. 

BEWARE of Hotel Pirates
We would like to make you aware that there are various companies, going by a number of names (such as Global Housing Services or Convention Housing Unlimited, etc.), which are representing themselves as the hotel reservation agency for Photonics Europe, or authorized by SPIE. These companies reach out to exhibitors and attendees using black market attendee lists. They disguise themselves as the Photonics Europe Hotel entity. They are claiming they can get better rates or they often use pressure tactics implying a hotel room shortage or impending deadline. They are careful what they claim in writing and often want to make arrangements by phone to avoid a paper trail. Beware of such unsolicited or unofficial hotel reservation claims as they often confuse and disappoint attendees and exhibitors and can lead to hidden penalties or no reservations at check-in as well.

We strongly recommend you DO NOT book hotels from any company that calls you directly or approaches via email that is not our official hotel reservation company, Conference Direct, linked directly from SPIE’s Photonics Europe web page and displaying the SPIE Photonics Europe Official Contractor logo. Only our official vendors (including Conference Direct) are legally permitted to use the SPIE Official Contractor Logo.

SPIE Official Contractor

The only way to book Hotels for Photonics Europe is through the SPIE website hotel booking pages. We do not solicit hotels to you directly unless embedding in an SPIE originated email with a link to our website hotel reservation page.
