The conference venue selected for ICLASS 2024 is Holiday Inn Shanghai Hongqiao. Despite the hotel name might indicate otherwise, the conference site offers a five-star lodging and conference experience. The conference venue opened in the year of 2011. During its lifetime of more than ten years, the hotel has hosted many domestic and international conferences in different fields. The conference venue is located south of Hongqiao Airport, Shanghai. The location of the venue makes it convenient for conference attendees to tour around, no matter via public transportation, taxi, or car rentals.
The venue owns one main conference room (on the first/ground floor) that can host 500-800 conference attendees, which fits the conference needs perfectly. There are 4-6 individual conference rooms that can be used for parallel sessions on the second floor.
The conference venue offers various amenities, including free WIFI, breakfast, laundry services, etc. Particularly, the conference venue provides free indoor pool access, gym, and even personal fitness coach by Will’s professional fitness team. Fitness courses are also available for reservation. The conference venue also has Thai spa services available on-site with a price discount to conference guests.
Currently, we have reserved 200 guest rooms at the conference venue and they will be available upon registration. The negotiated price for each room (38 square meters) will be 550 RMB (~80 USD) for both single-bed rooms and double-bed rooms. We encourage the attendees of the conference to choose the on-site lodging given the price and room quality at Holiday Inn Shanghai Hongqiao.
