As you may know, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is starting one week
after EuroPython 2018 in Edinburgh. Since this typically attracts many
thousands of people and artists, the hotels are filling up quickly in

If you’re planning to attend EuroPython, please book your hotel
early. Many booking sites offer free cancellations, so there’s no risk
in making reservations now, even if you decide not to come in the end.

Room allocation for EuroPython 2018

To help with this, we have partnered with the Edinburgh Convention
Bureau to set aside a number of hotel rooms which are reserved for
EuroPython attendees. These rooms will be held reserved until a few
weeks before the conference and are also available with a free
cancellation option.

The Edinburgh Convention Bureau has setup the following website for
booking rooms from this allocation:

Update on EuroPython 2018

Meanwhile, we wanted to give you an update of where we are with the
conference organization:

We are still working on getting everything setup for launching the
website, opening ticket sales and the Call for Proposals (CFP).

This year the EuroPython Society (EPS) will be running the ticket
sales, rather than a local organization and we are facing some
challenges related to VAT taxes, which are taking longer to sort out
than expected.

This is the main reason for the delay you are seeing, but we’re
getting there.
