Accommodation reservations will open with Registration on 9th February 2007.

Cape Town has a wide range of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. The AORTIC 2007 Conference Secretariat has selected a range of hotels for delegates to choose from and has negotiated reduced rates. All the hotels have easy access to the CTICC, and most are within walking distance.

It is strongly advised that delegates reserve accommodation early to ensure availability.

If delegates would prefer to book a bed and breakfast or a guesthouse for themselves, the AORTIC 2007 Conference Secretariat can provide a list of suggestions, or recommends Cape Town and Western Cape Tourism as a starting point:
