Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What happens after my registration is received?

After your registration comes in, we will send you an invoice to be paid immediately upon receipt. We will continue to keep you updated on developments between now and the event.

If you need a Visa to travel to the event, please use this link to submit your request and we can organise the invitation letter for you.

Do I need to pay to attend the Pre-conference Technology Day on Wednesday, 30 September?

No, the Technology Day is completely free for attendees.

The Pre-conference Technology Day was created because we know how integral tools such as translation management systems (TMS) are to project managers. This is a great opportunity to get to know the leading tools on the market and to learn how to harness the functionality, to help you manage your projects more effectively.

Can I bring a guest to the Networking Dinner on Thursday, 1 December?

You are welcome to bring as many guests as you would like to the Networking Dinner, though there is a cost of €55 per person. Just let us know on the registration form how many guests you would like to bring. 

When will the attendee list be available and how do I access this?

Our aim is to have the attendee list available 6 weeks before the event, so you can see who will also be attending and to arrange meetings in advance. This will be on the event website, in a special password-protected area that only attendees can access.

As soon as the list is ready we will email you to let you know it is available and to give you the password.

What happens if I need to cancel my attendance?

We understand that sometimes things come up and you need to change your plans.

As all requests must be received in writing, if you need to make a cancellation and to request a refund please email registration@elia-association.org. It is also possible to make substitutions, so if you have somebody you would like to give your place to just let us know.

To see if you qualify for a refund, have a look at the Terms of registration. Please note that according to the terms, which were agreed to when the registration was made, all cancellations incur a €60 processing fee.
