How do I reserve a room at the Meliá Madrid Princesa Hotel
Our team will manage all hotel reservations. Once you receive your personal email invitation to register for the event, you will be asked to provide your arrival and departure dates. Please note there may be additional fees to include a guest in your room, or to stay for additional nights. You will not be able to get the discounted Genetec rate if you contact the hotel directly. At checkout, you will be responsible for paying the balance of your hotel cost - including incidentals, guest fees, any additional room nights, and tax - to the hotel directly.
What if I register but need to cancel?
Please contact EUevents@genetec.com to notify us that you will be unable to attend Connect'19 by April 24, 2019.
Which airport should I fly to?
The Adolfo-Suárez de Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD) is the closest airport, approximately 15 km from the event venue in downtown Madrid.
How do I get to the hotel from the airport?
We will arrange all transfers to and from the airport. Please make sure to provide your flight details in the registration form so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
