Ytterbium will be held at the Park Inn, Heathrow — the same hotel we used for Dysprosium in 2015. We are looking forward to working with the hotel team again to create a great Eastercon for everyone.

Rooms at the Park Inn
We plan to open room booking in August/September 2018, with early booking available to members with special access requirements. We will announce details nearer the time. For details on room rates and booking, see our page about rooms at the Park Inn.
Food and drink
There will be a restaurant, a lounge bar, and convention food in the hotel. Vegetarian and vegan choices will be available; please let us know via Access if you have particular dietary requirements.
The Park Inn will run the bar, but they have given us the go-ahead to get our choice of Real Ale and Cider in, so the search for a brewery to work with has begun!
Parking at the Park Inn will be charged at £5 per day during the convention (Friday to Monday); make sure you register at the reception desk to get this special convention rate.
In addition, we have negotiated overflow parking in the NCP car park to the rear of the hotel, also at £5 per day — over 80% off the standard rate! To get this special rate, members must have their ticket validated by the attendant when they leave, and not at the machine.
