The Coordination Body and local South African Congress Team would like to apologize for the delay in getting budgeting information out to you all regarding next July's Congress. There have been a number of unfortunate and unprecedented difficulties locally which have delayed us getting this information to you, and we ask for your comprehension in these post-COVID times. What we have been able to do is put together detailed budgeting details, as we are aware of this urgent demand for us all.
FICE International Congress 4th to the 6th of July 2023 in South Africa.
FICE SA is planning to hold the congress in Port Elizabeth (now called Gqeberha) at the Nelson Mandela University but is also having to investigate new venue options in Universities in Johannesburg and Cape Town. All of these locations allow the delegates good travel access from outside of the country as they are international air travel destinations and have local connecting flights too.
FICE South Africa will communicate the final congress venue by mid-November 2022.
Congress fees include refreshments in the morning, afternoon (tea times), and supper on the first two days of the event (4th and 5th of July with the evening of the 5th being the gala function).
Early bird fee (until 15 February 2023): 290 Euros
Late registration fee (until 1 May 2023): 330 Euros
Last minute registration (until 31 May 2023): 370 Euros
