Cappadocia is one of the top-rated tourist destinations in the world, with attractions for all ages and tastes. Since the early 1980’s Turkey has been focusing heavily on tourism-related investments. Cappadocia has been the central place for such investments. Therefore, plenty of hotels and facilities accommodate guests with any need and/or budget.

Stay at Cave Hotels or ordinary Hotels in Cappadocia.

Valleys, rock formations, and caves form naturally, with some of those caves housing sprawling rooms, churches, and even accommodations carved out by early Christians over the centuries. You may stay in an ordinary hotel or one of the cave hotels in Cappadocia. These are entire hotels carved out of the landscape, letting you experience the true culture and beauty of the region.

Accommodations will be booked through the online registration form when delegates are registering for the conference.  For details on registering and reserving your accommodation, please click here.
