Since 2016 we have tried to explain why pre-reservations are not possible but it seems we couldn't get the message through: we explicitly asked for that, but the hotels won't commit without some upfront payment. So, we will *not* have pre-reservations to show. We summarized the data we have so far here: https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf19/Bids/Curitiba/Hotels It's still pending to separate the number of vacancies per room type (single/double/etc). We did confirm with them that they are available for the period where we would have DC19. We couldn't get anything in writing though. Please let us know if there is any other information that is needed.
