Event Details

Our venue (see image) is a local gem, Les Étoiles de Jamaa El Fna. It’s a cultural center in the middle of the frenetic Marrakesh medina (old city).

The center is just steps away from the Unesco landmark square, Jemaa el-Fnaa. 

Venue Location (Google Maps)

CONNECT events are always in local city centers, never in a hotel conference centers. We have limited number of rooms reserved at two nearby hotels but you are also welcome to book nearby local lodging on your own.

You have three basic choices for Marrakesh:

  • Stay in any of the small riads (a traditional Moroccan house around a central courtyard) close the Jemaa el-Fnaa square. These lodgings are often extremely old buildings, and be warned that the medina (old city) is an adventure to navigate. But you’ll be in the most local lodging.
  • Book an Airbnb. They are affordable and plentiful within minutes’ walk of the event venue.
  • Choose a modern hotel outside of the old city. If you sleep better in a modern hotel with thick walls and air conditioning, they’re all located outside of the medina.

Use the Jemaa el-Fnaa Square as your point of reference for the venue. There are dozens of options to suit budgets nearby. We recommend booking your lodging immediately, as Marrakesh is popular in November.

If you’re flying in to Marrakesh and want to experience some of Morocco, we’re working with local operators to offer some pre-event multi-day experiences.

We’ll announce more experiences soon.

At a minimum, plan to arrive on Monday, Nov. 18th during the day, in time for the welcome party at 6pm. Then, leave in the afternoon of Thursday, Nov 21.

We highly recommend arriving earlier, however, to make sure you make the most of your time in Morroco. We will be announcing some pre-event multi-day tours from Tourpreneur operators should you like to partake in an excursion before CONNECT begins.
