The convention is exclusively accessible to fully registered delegates representing BIR member companies and national associations affiliated to BIR, which have paid their 2021 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.

BIR does not offer a daily registration rate. Each delegate must pay the FULL registration fee mentioned below, regardless of the time spent at the convention and the number of meetings they are interested in.
One online registration form must be filled in for each attending delegate.

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

Each participant should be registered with their own unique e - mail 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.
