Edinburgh International Conference Centre
The Exchange, Edinburgh
EH3 8EE, Scotland
This year’s events will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Situated in the heart of Scotland’s beautiful capital city, the EICC is one of the world’s outstanding venues for conferences and events. Their purpose-built centre offers the very best facilities and technology.
We have negotiated a discounted hotel room rate at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa of £235/night (inclusive of VAT). The conference hotel room block closes on 3 September 2018 5:00 pm GMT. Hotel rooms may sell out in advance of the hotel room block close – we encourage you to book early to secure a room at the conference rate.
The conference room rate includes a full Scottish Breakfast served at One Square and premium in-room wifi.
Please note, the discounted hotel room rate is only available on the following nights – 18 October through 27 October. If your reservation dates extend before or after these dates, please contact the hotel directly to book. Be sure to mention the Open Source Summit room block.
Important: The Linux Foundation will never reach out to attendees by phone to make hotel reservations for our conferences. Please be advised that the most secure way to book in our discounted room block is by using the direct booking like provided above, or by calling the hotel directly. If you do receive a phone call from someone claiming to be with The Linux Foundation or the hotel and they attempt to sell you a hotel room, please email us at email@example.com.
If you have any questions related to the room block or conference hotel, please email the events team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
