What kind of place is the IEC venue?

The IEC venue is called Hotel Azur, a 4-star hotel with around 600 beds, 11 conference rooms, a ballroom with a capacity of 600 people, and 10 other rooms with a capacity of 60 people each for the thematic sections and workshops. It is an awesome place! A spacious, cheerful, clean hotel with a post modern touch to it. The global integral community will “occupy” the whole hotel, and you will go through an unparalleled experience in this week-long “evolutionary holiday!” The hotel is in a Hungarian town called Siófok, one hour west of the airport and  Budapest. Siófok is a prime summer holiday resort town on the shore of Lake Balaton, one of Europe’s biggest (80 km long) sweet water lakes, “The Hungarian Sea.” The grand integral tribe will be together on this tranquil lakeshore (the lake is in our garden!) in a 20-25 celsius (70-80 F) warm springtime, with blossoming flowers and swaying green trees. The end of May is the most pleasant and romantic time of the year in Central Europe! 

Why is it important to stay together at the conference venue?

Come and stay at the conference hotel with us! When you arrive at the conference, you immediately start to feel the irresistable charm of the integral community buzz, and you most probably won’t want to leave it for other places. We know, from many years of firsthand conferencing experience, how annoying it is if things are happening but we need to go away from the flow every day — just because we thought we’d like to save a few dozen Euros and stay somewhere else. Once at the conference, you will want to experience every hour of it instead of repeatedly going off to another place, where there is no energy and your experience leaks away.

Is it cheap or expensive? 

Think of this, for €115 / day you get:

1. A 4-star hotel room 2. Three delicious meals a day (vegetarian or meat options & all-you-can-eat) 3. Eat with the integral community: a prime chance to socialze, enjoy creative flow, or build your business 4. Two unlimited coffee breaks and snacks each day — these not only serve our “coffee addict” needs, but are also another great opportunity to hang out and socialize.

To break it down: 1.  €75 / night for a 4-star hotel room   2. €11 / all-you-can-eat meal (3 times/day: breakfast, lunch, dinner) 3. €3.5 / coffee break with unlimited coffee, fruits, cakes, snacks (2x/day)

One bonus:

FREE admission to the SPA COMPLEX. A separate building with multiple, large hot pools, socializing jacuzzis, and saunas.

Shall I save money and stay somewhere else?

Do you think it’s worthwhile to walk around town, trying to find cheaper food and lodging, in order to save a few euros but then miss out on being a part of the communty flow? We suggest you not stay somewhere else for your own good. You would likely feel sorry that you have to leave, right when it’s really building up steam and you want to be there. All your friends will be going to eat together and you will walk away and out. In the evening, important events happen, but you “need to go home.” You don’t want that experience. This occasion only arises every two years, and well might be the most important peak of your integral life. So we suggest you focus on the essence, be there, and let us take care of your physical needs with our reasonably priced packages.

Should you stay elsewhere, please know: it will take you 30-60 minutes daily to go back and forth. If you are hungry or need coffee, you will get regular a la carte prices in the conference restaurant and might find you didn’t save much. Or, you walk away from the community and find a restaurant in town, juggling with time and not necessarly saving any money. Also, you don’t get coffee and snacks unless you pay for them extra, at regular price. Our prices have been negotiated down from the regular prices in the hotel and restaurant and offer everything in a cheaper win-win package bundle. Make your experience unbroken and enjoyable!

Where do I pay for hotel and food?

Scroll above and see Tickets or go directly to the Ticket Shop! You can pay for hotel and food when you buy your ticket to the conference. Then just arrive at the hotel, check in at IEC’s registration desk, and you are all set! You will get your room, food tickets, coffee break and snacks tickets, and your free spa entry card. You are all set, and all your focus is then on people and the flow.

Too expansive? Ask for scholarship and get financial support!  – we will help you in

We, the organizers, are enthusiastic about helping, and some donors are offering financial support so that people with less income can also join the conference, instead of trying to stitch it together by trying to stay and eat somewhere else, thereby losing the flow. If you apply for a scholarship, one way we can help is to give you a reduced rate, made up from the donations, and we can even further reduce your costs by offering you cheap, home-style accommodations within 3-5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. These are basic but clean. Our local integral volunteers list the available places to stay, offering them to those asking for scholarships. With us, you will find home-style stays 75% cheaper than at any Airbnb you can find and also closer: within a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel. Scholarship application link here.
