Beware of Unauthorized Hotel and Registration Solicitations

Use MCI to Avoid Fraud! Note that MCI is the only official registration and hotel agency associated with WOC2018. While other hotel resellers and travel agencies may contact you with offers for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with WOC2018 or ICO. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.


Barcelona attracts many tourists, and due to the high demand for accommodation during the summer months, reservations will be made on a “first-come, first-served” basis.  We recommend booking early to ensure availability.
