The JCI UK selected conference hotel is the Ramada Plaza, which is only a 5 minutes' walk away from the ICC (Istanbul Convention Center) where the conference is taking place. This 5-star hotel offers many facilities including Turkish Bath and an open-air swimming pool.
You can book your rooms directly from the hotel website (http://www.ramadaplazaistanbul.com/) or via an agent for the organizing company by using this website http://www.odanova.com/jciistanbul/ with this password to log in (jciec2015). You might also get cheaper offer from websites like Booking.com. It is recommended to book your room as soon as possible as Istanbul is a very busy city and it is not easy to find enough rooms.
Some information you need to know for the conference:
- British Passport holders need a visa to enter Turkey. It is very easy to get online using this website: https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/
- They use the Turkish Lira in the country (not the Euro), with the Exchange Rate being £1 = 3.80 Turkish Lira.
