14 - 18 October 2018

Bilbao, Spain

It has been brought to our attention that various third party companies have been contacting Euro PM2018 exhibition personnel with regards to hotel reservations in Bilbao. Please note that these companies have not been authorised to handle hotel accommodation for the Euro PM2018 Congress & Exhibition, and are not affiliated with the event, nor EPMA in any way. Although they may appear very knowledgeable about both the event and the hotels in Bilbao, we advise delegates and exhibitors to not use such companies and to be alert should they receive such a telephone call or email.

An advance reservation of rooms has been made for Euro PM2018 delegates by Bco Congresos, details of which are available on the Hotel Information page.

To book your hotel accommodation, please book via the Bco Congresos service, or book through your preferred and trusted travel agent or booking website.
