Helsinki Conference

WUWM conferences are open to all interested professionals. Any person wishing to participate in the technical programme (e.g. conference sessions, market tours, etc.) must register as a delegate.

Accompanying persons (partners) are normally spouses who may wish to participate with delegates in the conference social functions and/or in any social programme that may be offered. Partners may not participate in the conference sessions. Delegates may not be registered as a partner. A partner may not register without an accompanying delegate.

Partners may participate with delegates in the welcome cocktail reception, in the conference closing dinner, in each of the daily lunches with delegates, in the Thursday evening city walking tour, and in the visits to both the wholesale and retail markets. For those partners who may wish to visit sights in the city of Helsinki or visit the Finnish Islands, perhaps even taking the ferry to visit the old city of Tallinn in Estonia, please visit the Helsinki City navigation link in this website to discover more about these and other possibilities. Those partners wishing only to attend the closing dinner with delegates may do so by paying a fee - please contact the WUWM Secretariat to enquire about that cost.

Cancellation Policy
Prior to 23 March 2013 (two months before the event) the cancellation fee applied will amount to 50% of the paid registration. There will be no reimbursement for cancellations made after this date although delegate substitutions will be possible without cost. Exceptions will be made for registration cancellations due to the failure to receive a visa on written confirmation of the visa denial from the Embassy. (Please know that visa invitation letters will not be issued without the delegate first making their registration and payment).
