Evenings drop to a pleasant 19°C, which means air conditioning is definite must for a good night’s rest.

HOTEL SCAM ALERT

It has come to our attention that companies or individuals claiming to be affiliated with the EED2020 may have contacted our invited speakers and delegates regarding their potential stay at our partner hotels. Please be aware that this is a scam sent from different companies, that will send you an email or call you to entice you to purchase rooms in Napoli.
We never promote specific accommodations and we are not affiliated in any way with “EhotelServices” or any other travel agent.
The only way for our delegates to reserve a hotel room under the EED2020 special rate is to make bookings directly through the partner hotel(s), using the EED2020 special code.

Data protection and privacy is of the utmost importance for us and your contact information has not been compromised by EED2020 Organizers. The agencies are accessing public congress information and searching contact details through search engines like Google.
