  • Childcare Options

    The Goldschmidt conference welcomes the attendance of delegates with young families. Whilst insurance and low demand mean that offering onsite childcare is not currently an option we will do our best to make the conference open to those who travel with their children. Children under 15 will not need to register for the conference but please do bring them to the helpdesk so we can issue a badge and let you know about the facilities in the centre and nearby which might be useful to you. A room is set aside for nursing mothers to use and a fridge can be made available for storing milk.

    Although the conference does not offer childcare we have been notified of several options for those looking for a service nearby. We are unable to recommend particular services as the list has not been vetted. All arrangements with any of these services are undertaken at your own risk. The conference is in no way responsible for any arrangement made with the companies below.

  • Hotels

    The Local Organising Committee have prepared this list of potential low cost accommodation options (download PDF below). The conference cannot guarantee availability or standards at any of these establishments and all bookings are made at delegates own risk. The conference is not working with any third party housing agency on accommodation for the conference. If you are contacted directly by any agency making this claim please be warned that this is likely to be a scam.


    The congress centre is linked to the Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile hotel, delegates can book rooms directly with the hotel at a confirmed rate by using the forms available here. Additionally, the conference has established a set rate for attendees at Le Méridien Etoile which is located next to the congress centre. If you wish to use this Goldschmidt rate please follow this link. It may be possible to get the same rooms at a lower price through price comparison websites.
