Book your hotel now!
With Cologne being the biggest conference centre in northern Europe, hotel rooms are scarce and all delegates are strongly advised to book their accommodation as soon as possible in order to secure a place to stay during the conference.
Play the Game and the German Sport University have secured a limited number of rooms in the vicinity of the conference venue at a reduced price and a few of these are still available. Go to the Accommodation site to see the list of partner hotels.
