Conference Venue

The conference will be held at the Gran Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun hotel.

Cancun is located in southeastern Mexico, on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.  Cancun is surrounded by the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, soft coral sands, and the striking shade of turquoise that reflects from its crystal-clear waters.

Beautiful surroundings combined with top-notch service have made the hotel the winner of the prestigious Five Diamond award numerous times and garnered accolades from Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler as one of Mexico’s best resorts.

All 602 air-conditoned suites offer spacious comfort and feature breathtaking ocean views, bringing glimpses of sea and sand at every turn.  Each suite has white marble floors, a sunken living room, infinity balcony and Wi-Fi.  Decor is warm yet refined, naturally complementing the setting.  Each suite features coffee/tea making facilities, bottled water, iron and ironing board, safe, mini car and flat screen TV.  Bathrooms have a hair-dryer, bathrobes, quality toiletries and slippers.

The 40,000 square foot Gem Spa is a world-class spa to enjoy.  A pool spans the length of the hotel and boasts rich, blue “lagoon like” waters and numerous relaxing lounges. The resort’s gorgeous beachfront is continually regarding as one of Cancun’s best beaches and has tropical palapas along the sand.  Picture-perfect vistas offer an unobstructed view of nearby Isla Mujeres. Hotel guests may also enjoy a variety of water sports.  From the pier, guests can catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres.

Various dining options include the Five Diamond La Basilic, which offers classic French fine dining; the oceanfront fresh seafood restaurant Isla Contoy, and the authentic and stylish La Joya that offers contemporary Mexican cuisine.  Local Mexican flavor is infused in the ambience nightly with traditional Mariachi singers serenading nightly at sunset in the lobby.

Children may enjoy daily, supervised entertainment at the hotel’s Fiesta Coral Kidz Club from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Activities include beachfront sandcastle building, seashell hunting, crafts and other interactive activities.

The hotel is located at Boulevard Kukulkan km. 9.5 Zona Hotelera, Cancun 77500, Quintana Roo, Mexico.  Check-in time is 3 pm and checkout time is noon.  With its proximity to shopping, dining and nightlife, guests can enjoy Cancun without a car.  Transportation information will be posted when registration opens.  The Cancun International Airport is approximately 30-40 minutes from the hotel.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
