The Hotel

The Convention will take place in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Congress Road, Glasgow. The hotel is situated about one mile from Glasgow City Centre and beside the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.

A special room rate has been negotiated for convention members. Rooms will be available on Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights for a convention rate of £90 room per night (for either twin/double or single occupancy), inclusive of breakfast. For room bookings, please contact the hotel directly, quoting "Satellite 2". Please note that only a limited number of rooms are guaranteed, at these special rates, until 28th May 2009.
