Hotel bookings

The meeting will take place at the Ramada hotel (Ramada encore by Wyndham, Busan Station).  Our contact is Mr. Choi, the sales manager.

Hotel reservations can start from 1 May with special discounts. We are circulating a booking form by email. Please enquire with the OP programme office if you need to receive a copy of the form.

The hotel does not charge a cancellation fee if the booking is cancelled up to one day before the meeting.

If you want to book any other accommodation in Busan, everyone is welcome to do so.

Booking should be made as early as possible because hotel reservation can be difficult due to many events planned in November at Busan.

Onsite setup

Hotel will provide a laptop and Wi-Fi so we can set up a conference call, allowing members who are unable to attend in person to take part.

However, the overall emphasis is to organise the meeting as an in-person event.
