Please, check your local travel agency for accommodation in Varadero. Also, check online. For example, Sunwing offers very good deals for hotels in Varadero, Cuba close to the Symposium venue.
Basically, any hotel located in Varadero will work for participating in the symposium because it is easy to catch the local shuttles (5USD/5 EUR/day) to go from any hotel to the symposium venue. The shuttle service works pretty well.
