Green Destinations (hereafter referred to as GD) is the conference organiser of the conference “Global Green Destinations Days 2019” (GGDD19), which takes place from October 8 to 12, 2019 in Croatia.

These General Terms and Conditions are valid for each attendee registered for the GGDD19 conference. Any person attending, delegate, student, media representative, speaker, exhibitor, exhibition visitor etc. is considered an attendee.

REGISTRATION

The registration and payment deadlines are as follows:

Everyone who wants to attend the conference must register. Until the 2nd day of the event on the 9th October where early registration for late arrivals is still possible, the registration to the GGDD 2019 conference is solely possible via the online registration form. With the completion of the online registration (clicking the button “register here” at the end of the form), the contract between GD and the participant is legally binding.

If the maximum attendee capacity is reached, the organizers reserve the right to refuse any registration. This also applies to single program items (e.g. Train-the-Trainers Sessions on Green Destinations programs, Parallel thematic workshops, thematic panels sessions).

For members of Top 100 and GD representatives who want to apply for a waiver should

1) Apply for a waiver at the moment of pre-registration.

2) Submit a success story according to instructions.

The participant will receive official confirmation of registration/invoice from GD after registration via an email. All registration fees must be paid prior to the conference in full accordance with the deadlines mentioned above and the information provided on the invoice. Should one deadline be missed, the next applicable fee will be charged automatically and GD will send a new invoice subsequently.

Payments are only accepted in EUR and can be made by credit card or by bank transfer. Any bank charges have to be paid by the participant. Cheques will not be accepted. Only after full payment has been received within the respective registration period, the registration for the desired registration fee will become valid. Otherwise, the Conference Organization will change the registration fee according to the payment deadlines and send a new invoice. If the conference fees have not been paid before the beginning of the conference at the latest, they need to be paid onsite at the registration desk in cash or by credit card which will result in an additional onsite charge.

VISA REQUIREMENTS

It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of his/her visa requirements. Attendees who require an entry visa must schedule sufficient time for the application procedure. Attendees should contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications. It is recommended to apply for a visa at least three months in advance of the conference.

Individuals requiring an official Letter of Invitation can request it during the online registration. Invitation Letters will be issued only for registered delegates, who fully paid their registration – not for Exhibition Visitors. Invitation Letters will be issued electronically (as PDF file via email). Issuing the Invitation Letter does not financially obligate the conference organizers in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the conference are the sole responsibility of the attendee.

NAME BADGE

On arrival at the conference venue, every attendee has to proceed to the registration desk first in order to pick up the name badge and the conference material. The name badge has to be worn at any time during the conference and entrance to the different conference facilities will only be allowed when presenting a valid conference name badge. If an attendee loses, misplaces or forgets the name badge, a handling fee of EUR 10.00 will be charged for reprinting the badge. Upon handing out a new name badge, the lost badge will become invalid.
