There is a wide range of hotel accommodations at different price points. There are several hotels located near the conference location at CIS Champagne. For your convenience we have courtesy blocks at the following hotels.

CIS Champagne

Meetings will be held at the CIS Champagne, a hostel-style hotel that offers a range of affordable hotel rooms, from a private one-bedroom with shower up to sharing five beds in one room.

How do you pronounce "Reims"?

We don't blame you if you thought it was "Reems," but no, the word is closer to "Rance," as in, rhymes with "France." Roll the first R a little (on the back of your tongue) and let the word disappear somewhere in your throat and you've got it.
