Hotel Information

ss Rotterdam hotel and Congress venue on a cruise ship
3e Katendrechtse Hoofd 25, 3072 AM Rotterdam, Netherlands

As the former flagship of the Holland-America Line, ss Rotterdam has sailed the seven seas. Discover La Grande Dame’s many stories and visit its authentic areas while you eat, drink, sleep, party, meet or work. Today ss Rotterdam is permanently moored in Rotterdam and it’s easy to reach.

The WMRC 2023 Congress Secretariat (International Conference Services, Ltd.) is the official housing bureau and will offer assistance with the coordination of housing requirements for the Congress. Special room rates have been negotiated and will be available to WMRC 2023 attendees only.

The success of the WMRC 2023 depends on delegates, sponsors, and exhibitors using the official Congress accommodation by booking through the official housing bureau. WMRC 2023 cannot meet contracted room obligations if registrants reserve rooms outside the official hotel or book hotels through channels other than the official housing bureau. Rooms that are not filled through the official housing bureau create an expense for Congress in the form of financial penalties (attrition fees) and place the financial success of Congress at risk.

For the WMRC 2023 Congress, a limited number of guestrooms at ss Rotterdam hotel, the Congress venue, will be offered to registered delegates at a discounted rate. You must register for the Congress before you can book your accommodation. Please do not contact the Hotel or make a reservation directly with them.

The legendary former flagship of the Holland America Line, 228 metres long, 28 metres wide, 51 metres high, rich in history and renowned for its cultural-historical value, the ss Rotterdam. On the website of Vrienden van Stoomschip Rotterdam you can read all about its history.

Cancellation and Reduction in Room Nights Policy

Cancellations and reductions in room nights must be made no later than 13 June 2023 in order to avoid a penalty charge equal to the full stay. Cancellations and reductions in room nights after 13 June 2023 will result in all room nights being charged to the credit card on file. No refunds will be issued for no-shows. In the unlikely event that the Congress is cancelled, travel and accommodation costs will not be refunded.

Rooms can only be booked via the booking link provided after the completion of your registration.

Housing Piracy Warning

WARNING: Please beware of housing piracy companies. They contact delegates/ sponsors to book rooms through their channels and are claiming that they control the rooms for the Congress. They do not. These companies charge non-refundable deposits from the moment you book their rooms; thus, making it impossible for delegates to cancel their reservations. In some situations, rooms are not booked but payment has been taken.
