Can I see an example about how to determine the cost of the REGISTRATION?

Imagine you want to attend the Agora and submit a communication to CongressAgora and take advantage of the visibility the event can provide to your work, by attending FACE TO FACE the event EVERYDAY. In addition, you are member of a NODE coordinated by a partner from your research or innovation group; 3 node partners have formalized their registration as AsistAgora or CompletAgora. You are making the PhD (and have a certificate describing this situation). Finally, you want your communication to be a POSTER, and you want to have your poster printed and arranged from the Agora organization. You make the payment before 15/04/2019.

 

 With this information, the price of the registration will be: 

 

  1. Selection of the base modality: 

 

The adequate modality would be M2a, CompletAgora, allowing you to take advantage of the benefits associated to this modality.

 

When you chose the FACE-TO-FACE option and you make the payment (date of payment document) before 15/03/2019, you will have as base price the quantity of 190 € as it is displayed in Table 1.

 

  1. Application of discount on the base price:

 

According to the situation described, you can benefit from three discounts: 

 

  • 50 % because you are a PhD student.
  • 20 % because you have joined a NODE in which 3 or more integrants have registered and made the payment.
  • 10 % because you are member of a NODE. 

 

Since the discounts exclude each other the biggest discount , will be applied (that is to say, 50% corresponding to a PhD student) on BASE PRICE. Because this quantity is greater than 25% the gala dinner would not be included, although the remaining social events are included. If you want you can get a ticket to the GALA DINNER.

 

The price, once the discount is applied, would be 95 €.

 

  1. Application of extras on the price at which the discounts have been applied:

 

According to the information specified, you would have an extra:: 

  • 30 € per printing and arrangement of the poster, avoiding its transfer from the origin. 

The final price of the registration, once the specified discounts and extras have been applied, would be of: 125 €, The registration could then be made adding the payment document as well as the needed accreditation (PhD student in this example).


What are the cancelation rules stablished by the Organization?

The cancellation of the registration, once the payment has been made, will involve, in any case and for any cause, a minimal penalty of 30% of the price paid in concept of management, as long as it made before 30/06/2019. 

 

From 01/07/2019 and until the event start, only the 25% of the event will be refunded. 

 

Once the event is started, no refund will be made.
