Conference Fees

Conference fees include all conference workshops and events (excluding optional consultations) on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, 2019, including the apéro on Saturday and lunches on Saturday and Sunday.

Some optional activities have additional costs.

There are two payment options: PayPal or bank transfer.

Due to PayPal fees, a surcharge has been added to conference tuition for those who wish to pay this way.

To pay by bank transfer you must wire the COMPLETE amount in Swiss Francs (CHF) including any consultation fees, and covering any currency conversion and bank fees, within four days of your registration to the account indicated on your registration confirmation email. If you are sending funds from a country in the SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area), you may send your payment in Euros. When sending a SEPA payment, you must select “our” for the payment fees (to cover the fees on your side). Please use this calculator to determine the amount in Euros to send.

If the total amount has not been received within four days your registration AND reserved consultation are at risk of being canceled.
