The InterCongress will be held in Ramallah, Occupied Palestinian Territories. Academic sessions, panels and business meetings will be located at Best Eastern Hotel in Ramallah.

The Best Eastern Hotel is ideally located on the east side of midtown Ramallah, very closed to the heart of the city.

Situated in Ersal Street, Bireh, the hotel is close to Jerusalem and most Palestinian cities. It overlooks the valley on the Eastern Coast of the Mediterranean Sea and is surrounded by exquisite gardens. The hotel was designed specifically for the traveller who, while needing to be near the city for business purposes, also requires the tranquility that only the countryside could provide. It has its own parking area as well as a frequent public transport downtown.
