Registration Terms and Conditions
Registration fees are based on the date of receipt of the registration form. The prices indicated are per person and are only applicable if both the registration form and the payment are received before the deadlines mentioned above; otherwise the higher registration fee will be applied. If a person is found to be ineligible for the membership and/or other discount under which they have registered, EWEA reserves the right to audit or adjust the registration fees applied.
Upon completion of your online registration, you will be sent a confirmation by email. The confirmation is sent to the e-mail address provided on the registration form and will show if we have received your payment and will include an invoice.
Invitation letter for visa application
Attendees must have registered and paid the required registration fees before requesting an official letter of invitation. All requests should be made during the online registration. Please note that the organisers will not be able to contact or intervene with any Embassy or Consulate office on behalf of a participant.
EWEA Membership fee
EWEA membership rates will be applied and a member company will appear in the relevant list only if all membership payments have been made and if the organisation is an EWEA member at the date of the event. The processing time for new membership contracts is two weeks. If the membership status is not valid at the date of registration (either due to non-payment or contract processing time), the non-member fee will be charged and any reimbursements made only after receipt of the membership payment.
Payment must accompany the registration form. Registrations received without payment will not be processed nor confirmed. All prices are in Euro (€). All payments must be made in Euro (€); no other currency will be accepted.
Payment by credit card (for all registration categories)
The online registration platform is a secured site. VISA and Eurocard/MasterCard are the only credit cards accepted. Please enter all relevant information on the registration form. It is also mandatory that the credit cardholder's name is clearly mentioned if it differs from the registrant's name.
Credit card fees are the sole responsibility of the registrant and should be paid in addition to the registration fees.
Bank transfer payment (for exhibitor staff registration only)
Payments by bank transfer are accepted until 7 January 2013 and should be made to the following bank account:

Bank fees are the sole responsibility of the registrant and should be paid in addition to the registration fees. Transfers must clearly state the name of the conference, the registration number and name of the participant, as unidentified bank transfers cannot be processed. If payment is made for more than one person or by a company, please make sure all names are indicated.
Exhibitors with outstanding fees at the time of the event will be required to provide a credit card guarantee onsite.
Austrian VAT is applicable on the registration fees and costs relating to food and beverages (20%). Please note that VAT on registration fees paid by companies and other taxable entities can only be reclaimed if the client’s VAT number is mentioned on the invoice. If applicable, please fill out your company’s VAT number in the corresponding section on the registration form.
