If you want to stay additional nights not included in the drop-down menus, select the closest dates and put your preferred check-in and check-out dates in the Hotel Request/Extended Hotel Dates box during registration. We will respond to you as soon as possible. Please do not call the hotel directly.
Q: What is the attire?
A: Average temperatures range between 21°C (71°F) to a low of 12°C (54°F). We advise bringing a light jacket for variant interior temperatures. Jeans are acceptable and encouraged for daytime meetings. For the Vatican Museum, no shorts allowed and women must cover their shoulders and knees.
Q: I'm a customer and would like to bring a guest. Is that possible?
A: Because of the exclusive participation of GCAB, you are welcome to bring a guest at your own expense, however, we are unable to extend an invitation to your guest for the meeting and evening activities. Participants will be paired with Cisco executives for both the Tuesday and Wednesday evening dinners.
