Possible Belgian Hotel Change
The Venue change means that our hotel (Ibis Messe Zürich Airport) is at a 8 km walk to the new location, instead of 1 km to the old one. This hurts.
One thing we’ve got going for us is that JCI CH negotiated a great deal with Zürich Transportation. For +- 6€ per day, you can move around all regions that you need to for the Congress, including our current hotel and the new Swiss Life Arena.

The Zürich public transport runs pretty much all night, so if you want to go for drinks in the city center, you’ll be able to get back to the hotel easily and it will be included in the transport ticket.
We are looking into options to change hotels for a similar price, but so far we’ve had no luck. This isn’t an easy feat for a large group like ours, and prices are already climbing. We’ll keep you posted, of course.
