complete meeting information, including links to take you to the ITU hotel
and meeting registration Web sites.


There is no meeting hotel for this Interim. The ITU has provided a link to
hotels that give preferred rates to ITU participants here:

ITU Preferential Hotels

Participants are responsible for selecting and booking their own hotel.
These hotels typically do not advertise the ITU hotel rate. You will need to
ask for it. It has been suggested that you narrow your search down to 5 or
10 likely hotels, and send telephone, email or FAXes to confirm the ITU
rates and availability. You should locate a prospective hotel on a map to
see how far it is from ITU headquarters. Bus, train, taxi, light rail and
walking are all transportation options depending upon the hotel location.

There is no one to call for help with hotels. Participants are on their own.


Every visitor to Geneva receives a free Geneva Transport Card from their
hotel at check-in. This card provides unlimited use of the entire
public-transportation network.

There is no registration fee. Participants are required to have a
registration badge while at the ITU. Registration for the Interim may be
