The venue for all the official conference activities and accommodation will be the Rosewood Hotel in Beijing, a stunning fusion of Chinese and Australian design, described by the London Daily Telegraph as “a cut above everywhere else in Beijing.”

The hotel is situated in the fashionable Chaoyang district, centrally located but with easy access out to the airport, and a short taxi ride from major Beijing locations like the Forbidden city and Tiananmen Square.

ROOM ALERT:  It is likely the least expensive rooms (which are fabulous in their own right) may sell out soon.  So it's a good idea to book NOW.


We have negotiated obtained a special rate for The Indie Summit participants, of CNY 1700 per room per night for a deluxe room. At current exchange rates this is around US$ 250, or 215 Euros, or GB£ 190 a discount of 42% on the hotel’s rack rate. If you choose to upgrade to more expensive room, this will also be available with a similar discount.

If you stay a day or two either side of the conference, you can get the same rate. It’s a very good deal!

This rate is only available with a special discount code which we will send to you as soon as you book your delegate place. If you are travelling with family or other companions, the discount code can be applied to their accommodation also.

“The Rosewood is one of the capital's classiest lodgings, and a cut above everywhere else in Beijing. Chic guestrooms, on-trend restaurants and fabulous facilities are backed up by obsessive attention to detail – from the intriguing in-room book selection to the staff's designer uniforms.” – Daily Telegraph, UK

If it is calm amid the hustle and bustle of Central Beijing you seek, then look no further than Sense spa. The relaxing treatments are just the tonic after a long day, and luxurious touches like bamboo linen (delightfully soft on the skin) are found throughout the serene space. The more active will enjoy the gym kitted out by Technogym, the yoga studio and the almost 80-foot-long pool. – Forbes Travel Guide, USA

“staff are unfailingly friendly.. a bevy of chefs guide you through the local cuisine” – Mr and Mrs Smith, UK

“No 1 hotel in China” – Conde Nast Traveller, Readers’ Choice Awards 2017


Delegates should book their stay at the Rosewood Hotel as soon as possible to take advantage of our special delegate rate of CNY 1700 plus local tax per room. We have guaranteed 50 rooms at this rate; once these have been booked, rooms are subject to availability.

  Whilst a credit card is required to guarantee the booking, guests can cancel or shorten their booking, free of charge before 23rd April 2019. However, any cancellations, amendments or ‘no -shows’ on or after 23rd April 2019 are non-refundable and your credit card will be charged for the entire length of your stay.

  If you choose not to stay at the Rosewood for any reason, please let us know, as we may need to apply an additional charge of £250 GBP to your booking, to cover the increased fee we will need to pay to the hotel in case less than 50 rooms are booked.

   REMINDER: Most visitors will need a visa. Normally, you can apply for a visa, from 3 months in advance. We will provide you with an invitation letter for this. If you apply for your visa in good time, you should receive it well in advance of 23rd April. If you apply in good time, but are refused a visa for any reason, we will refund your hotel cost and delegate fee.

  If you are a permanent resident in Beijing, please contact before booking your place, as special arrangements will apply.
