Fees and Registration

Conference registration and workshop fees for face-to-face delegates

Waiting lists for EPDP workshops

If your first-choice of EPDP workshop or other event is full, you can ask to be put on a waiting list. However, we advise you to also book another workshop, because we generally have a very low cancellation rate for the workshops and so places do not often become available. If a place does become available, we will offer it to delegates in the order in which they were added to the waiting list. If we are able to offer you a place on your first-choice workshop, we will let you know at least 10 day before the session. If you do not hear from us by then, we are sorry that on this occasion you have been unsuccessful.

Accompanying persons
Accompanying persons wishing to attend the opening networking event and welcome reception, and to join the EMWA lunch and coffee breaks, must be registered for the conference by the EMWA member they are accompanying. 

For registered disabled delegates, one registered accompanying carer may attend free of charge. EMWA reserves the right to ask for proof of disability (e.g. national registration certificate) for delegates claiming the reduced rate for their accompanying carer. Accompanying persons (including carers) may not attend workshops, seminars, ESS, Symposium, or other paid events at the conference, but are welcome to attend all open sessions, breaks, and meals.

At the time of registration, delegates may choose between immediate payment by credit card or to be invoiced. Invoices must be settled by bank transfer in Euro. All fees are payable in advance.
