FEBS 2017 Official Hotels

'FEBS 2017 Official Hotels' are hotels selected by the Congress-organizing company Kenes to provide a range of negotiated price options for delegates, and easy booking options with Kenes support.  All hotels are within reasonable distance of the ICC venue.

Jerusalem is a touristic area and the beginning of September is still high season. Therefore, you may consider combining your annual vacation with the Congress dates and extending your hotel reservations and seeing what Jerusalem, Israel has to offer as a travel destination.

To make your hotel reservation, click on the hotel booking links on this page; this will direct you to the official booking system, which is run by Kenes as a separate platform.

For group bookings (10 or more rooms) you are required to contact Mrs Sivan Mahatabi from our Accommodation Team, via smahatabi@kenes.com
