Payment options

By Credit card

The preferred method of payment is payment by card online via our secure payment gateway.

In the unlikely event of a rejected on-line credit/debit card payment, the delegate is recommended to return to his/her registration online and to try to process the payment again. Should the payment issue persist, the participant is advised to contact the card issuer/bank first to check for any potential block on the online transaction. If so, once this is removed it will be possible to pay via the online payment gateway.

By bank transfer

By choosing the bank transfer option, an e-mail with a copy of the payment proof, clearly stating the name of the participant should be sent to to validate the registration. Any bank charges incurred are to be paid by the participant.

Payment by bank transfer is available until the 1st of August 2024. After this date, all payments can only be done by credit/debit card.
