  • Does my registration cost cover personal insurance?
    Registration fees do not include insurance of any kind. It is strongly recommended that all registrants take out their own travel and medical insurance prior to the event. The policy should include loss of fees through cancellation of your participation in the event itself, loss of airfares for any reason, medical expenses and repatriation should travel arrangements have to be altered. The conference secretariat will not take responsibility for any delegate failing to insure.
