IPSSW2018 – IMPORTANT changes to Radisson guest registration


You may have received a message from the Park Inn by Radisson, Amsterdam City West stating that the opening of the hotel is delayed and that they will no longer honor your reservation.

We apologize for any concerns this has caused. However, this is the case and the hotel mistakenly reached out ahead of schedule, without the details or information we had planned to provide.  

Here’s what you currently need to know:

  • IPSSW2018 is still taking place on the scheduled dates in Amsterdam, however we must change the venue.
  • If you are booked at the Radisson, IPSS will be sending re-booking instructions very soon. DO NOT contact the Radisson at this point.
  • The new venue will better suit our conference – more information is coming soon.

We are excited to see you in Amsterdam, and look forward to an outstanding conference.

Please direct any questions you may have to
