No Room

The Chinese are fearful that there may be an accommodation shortage in Beijing, when it hosts the Olympics in 2008.

They estimate that the capital would be around 2.2 million hotel beds short of projected demand during the entire Games.

Therefore a tourism promotion conference is going to be held next April, to attract international hotels and travel agencies to improve and expand accommodation.

The Games are scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. on August 8, 2008 (8/8/8/08). This series of 8's is deemed to be very lucky by the Chinese.
