All formalities regarding registration, including issuance of badges to duly nominated participants to attend the sessions, are free of charge.

How to collect your conference badge
To be issued a conference badge, all participants must be duly registered as indicated in the section “How to register” above.
Upon arrival at the venue for the first time, you will be requested to proceed to the registration desk to collect your badge for access to the conference premises. The acknowledgement letter for the participant’s nomination, available upon confirmation in the online registration system, and a valid passport or a nationally approved identification card should be presented to the registration staff for the issuance of your badge.
For subsequent visits to the venue, once you have a badge, you may access the venue directly through security, without stopping at the registration desk.
Once the badge has been activated, the record cannot be deleted from the database.
