|The 11th ICOC will be held in
Istanbul April 19-22, 2007. Conference headquarters
will be the 5-Star Swissotel. Overlooking the Bosporus,
it is one of the most beautiful and well-managed
hotels in Istanbul. The Dealer’s
exhibition, Academic Sessions and some Exhibitions will
be held at the Hotel. Three years ago, the ICOC
negotiated a low BASE ROOM-RATE OF $175
FOR TWO PEOPLE*.
EXPRESS ICOC REGISTRATION FOR THOSE
BOOKING ROOMS AT THE SWISSHOTEL! NO LONG
LINES...NO WAITING. IF YOU ARE STAYING AT THE SWISSHOTEL
BOSPHORUS CONFERENCE CENTER, YOUR COMPLETE REGISTRATION
PACKAGE WILL CONVENIENTLY BE IN YOUR ROOM UPON ARRIVAL.
THOSE NOT STAYING AT THE SWISSOTEL MUST PICK UP
THEIR CONFERENCE PACKAGES AND BADGES AT THE CONFERENCE
REGISTRATION DESK BEFORE ATTENDING ANY EVENTS.
This low rate is a major price coup for a luxury
hotel with all the Conference facilities we need
in a very popular tourist city like Istanbul at
a prime season of the year. *VAT and a superb, collegial,
breakfast in our private rooms that look toward
Asia are added, as shown.
YOU CAN SAVE EVEN MORE BY BOOKING THE
As many of you know, hotel prices in Istanbul have
escalated. All transportation for Receptions, Cruises,
Tours, Museum Exhibitions and the Tophane Private
Exhibtions will depart from and return to the Swissotel.
It is very time-consuming to travel to and from
all the Conference events from other locations in
Istanbul, due to heavy traffic at peak times. And
staying at the Swissotel Bosporus will energize
our traditional collegial socializing that is so
much a part of our Conferences. We hope registrants
will book this low rate to fulfil our contractual
agreement with Swissotel for a minimum number of
roomnights. Without this, ICOC will be charged very
high fees for the two Lecture Halls, Exhibition
Rooms and the Dealers' exhibition Hall. Your support for
booking the Conference Hotel keeps your registration
