registration information

ESTAL Congress has a three-step secure registration system:

  1. The 1st step is to register your e-mail address, then select and memorize your password. After doing so you may sign in and continue the procedure.Please note, that there is no way for group registration, one e-mail address can be used for one registration record, as it also serves as an identifier.
  2. The 2nd step (“pre-registration”) involves your personal details, affiliation, membership. If your affiliation is not in the database yet, please press “Add affiliation” and enter the data on that sheet.
  3. In the 3rd step, please select your registration category and, if it is the case, you may register an accompanying person. You can define another invoice address if it is different from your workplace address (default). After completing this stage, you are becoming a “Registered delegate”.

Payment can be completed separately, in a subsequent stage, from the “Registration” page.

In addition to the registration, the booking of the hotel room has to be done individually through the reservation form to be found under “accommodation”
