REGISTRATION GUIDELINES

CONDITIONS OF ATTENDANCE

The convention is exclusively accessible to fully registered delegates representing member companies and national associations affiliated to BIR, which have paid their 2022 annual membership dues to BIR, as well as to special guests and Observers (subject to conditions).

Membership within a national federation affiliated to BIR does not automatically entitle a company to register delegates to the convention at the reduced BIR member conditions.

“Observer” registration status can be granted to representatives from non-member companies for a maximum of one convention. After that, every observer needs to make sure that his/her company joins BIR as a member in order for him/her to attend any future conventions. Please note that for new members to be able to register to BIR 2022 Dubai, their membership applications must be submitted by 1 October 2022 at the latest.

The non-member fee will be charged if the membership status is not valid at the date of registration.

Registrations will not be processed without valid payment.
A confirmation will only be sent by email if above conditions are fulfilled and after the payment has been received.

Each participant should be registered with their own unique email address in order to gain access to products and services related to the convention, such as access to the mobile app, conference proceedings, online evaluation and participants list.
