Frequently asked questions
How do I book a Conference?
There are three ways to book a conference: Online via the online booking form, via fax or letter or via phone.
Via online booking form
In order to book a Conference online, please go to the Conference Detail Page. To get to the Conference Detail Page please click in the menu on "Upcoming Events", choose your conference and click on "Details". Scroll a little bit down and click on the tab "Booking" to view the booking instructions for the particular conference. At the bottom of the booking instructions you will recognise one or more booking forms, e.g. a form for physicians, a form for nurses etc.. Fill in the form that suits you. In some cases you can also choose additional services like gala dinner or workshops. Please make your choice. If you want to make several bookings please click on "Add Another Delegate". The webpage reloads and you can fill in the form again, e.g. for your colleague. As soon as you entered the data of the last delegate, please click on "Proceed with Payment". This will guide you to the Booking Cart. There you will see an overview of all delegates entered. The Booking Cart gives you the option to enter a Discount Code or to delete delegates from the Booking Cart in case you entered the wrong data. If everything is ok please click on "Proceed with Booking". That initialises the payment process where you have to enter your billing address and where you can choose your payment method. The payment system consists of five steps. Please fill in all fields correctly. After the last payment step a confirmation page is displayed which provides you with the link to your invoice (pdf). You will also get an automated confirmation email to your email address with your booking data and the link to your invoice (pdf).
