Accommodation and funding

The Delegates Welcome Service (CAGI) supports the logistics of the organisation of short stay accommodation, mainly for those delegates from NGOs or civil society who participate in an international conference. It can also grant financial support to reduce the costs of the stay, thanks to:

  • funding granted by the Swiss Confederation, the Republic and Canton of Geneva and the City of Geneva,
  • privileged partnerships with different hotels from the region of Geneva.

After the demand is analysed, the delegate who benefits of such support, pays a contribution for the accommodation. The CAGI pays the hotel directly for the stay. The contribution of the delegate goes from 35 Swiss Francs to 110 Swiss Francs per night.

The CAGI makes the bookings according to the availability of the hotels when the demand is made. The CAGI cannot take over an existing booking under any circumstances.

It is strongly recommended to contact the CAGI as soon as possible, given the enormous demand during certain periods in which Conferences and Events Season takes place.
