Hotel Information

The Lausanne Tourisme & Convention Bureau has pre-booked a number of rooms in different hotel categories across the city of Lausanne.

Participants who wish to stay at a hotel in Lausanne will be able to book a room at preferential rates in the hotel of their choice while completing the symposium online registration process.

We wish to kindly bring your attention to the fact that the deadline for booking a room at one of the Symposium-designated hotels is 5 February 2018.

After that date, you will no longer be able to use the Symposium registration platform to book a hotel and preferential rates may no longer be guaranteed. Requests for accommodation would be processed on a case-by-case basis according to availability. As the number of hotel rooms is limited, we therefore strongly encourage you to book your room as soon as possible.

While hotel reservations are being arranged through Lausanne Tourisme, Lausanne Tourisme does not process payments. Lausanne Tourisme will only forward credit card details to the hotel to guarantee rooms. If at a later stage you wish to cancel or change the dates of your reservation, please follow the instructions on the website and contact Ms. Claudia Furnari at Lausanne Tourisme (

Please also note that successful registration for the Symposium does not guarantee your hotel booking, and vice versa. Registration for the Symposium and registration for hotel rooms are two distinct processes. WADA and Lausanne Tourisme cannot be held responsible for incomplete Symposium or hotel reservations.

WADA and Lausanne Tourisme also call your attention to the fact that they are not responsible for hotel reservations relating to meetings other than the Symposium.
