IMPORTANT: Please BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE REGISTERED FOR THE CONGRESS. When you contact the Hotels, make sure that you are quoting “IPS congress June 2006” so that the hotels will apply our special congress room rates for you!. If booking through us (see below), you only need to send us an email if it is not possible for you to select your room option from the congress registration page.

All prices are inclusive of 18% VAT and are cited either in US$ or in Ugandan Shilling (converted into US$ in brackets according to the current exchange rate, June 2005). Please acknowledge that all prices are only quotes and thus subject to slight changes by June 2006!

Please bear in mind that the US$, the pound sterling, and the Euro are the strongest currencies used in Uganda and are the easiest to exchange. We recommend that you change your currency into one of these currencies for your expenses while in Uganda. US dollar notes dated prior to 1997 are turned away, we recommend if you are using US$ to bring notes issued not earlier than the year 2000.
