The organisers offers special corporate rates in two hotels:
– Yas Island Rotana Abu Dhabi;
– Centro Yas Island-by Rotana.
To get the discount you just need to email the hotels and mention that you are attending a conference at Zayed University.
However, right now on Booking.com, the rates are actually cheaper than the corporate rate, so, maybe it makes sense to book directly directly via Booking.com.
The organisers will arrange transportation in the morning and after the conference to/from these two hotels.
