Delegates attending the ESSC 2024 can take advantage of special rates for a range of accommodation options in Antwerp. A limited number of rooms are available at discounted rates. We, therefore, strongly recommend that you book your hotel room as soon as possible.

The deadline to avail of these rates is 26th May 2024. Antwerp is a small city, and we strongly encourage you make your reservation early to avoid disappointment. Room reservations can be cancelled until 15 days before the date of arrival.

Book your special accommodation rate through this link.


Antwerp is easily accessible by air, rail and road. If possible, we would recommend traveling by rail or road, for more sustainable travel.
