How to book a room at the venue NH hotel?
We had planned to open the hotel reservations, using the dedicated NH event tool from 1st July onwards.
However, the new hotel management said it will only open the event tool, and allocate the complete hotel, all 500+ rooms, for the WME2021, if we accept that all reservations are due for payment immediately upon reservation. Or simply put: you have to pay immediately when you book your room. You would still be able to cancel without any charges until one week prior to the event and will be refunded by NH, but we believe that this new policy is not acceptable and unfair toward visitors of the WME, and we are still negotiating with NH about this.
Most likely scenario at this moment is that room reservations will open only 4 months before the event, so March 1, 2021.
This would mean that in case the hotel at the venue is full, you would have to find another place to stay, relatively short before the event, which might be a problem.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you look for a hotelroom in Eindhoven or in the vicinity of the event right now, and make a reservation without obligatory payment. (You can use the list of alternative places to stay on this page (PDF) as a guideline, but there are more options of course).
This way you will be assured of a place to stay during the World Model Expo, and in case you will be able to book a room at the NH hotel as soon as these become available, you can cancel your previous reservation elsewhere without any problem or additional charges.
We appologize that we cannot provide you with any better news at the moment, but as you know, we run the Expo, not the hotel.
