Which expenses are covered by the GENEVA FORUM?
The GENEVA FORUM will take charge of the whole conference week organization in the UN Palais des Nations which will allow participants to fully enjoy the meetings and get to know each other. On the other hand, the conference speakers and auditors will be expected to cover their travel and accommodation expenses.
Will the accommodation and travel expenses of invited conference speakers be covered by the GENEVA FORUM?
As stated above, the GENEVA FORUM will host the week-long conference in the UN Palais des Nations where you will have the opportunity to meet with your peers.
During this forum, even when invited by the organizing committee itself, speakers will still be expected to finance their own accommodation and travel expenses.
However, please enquire whether your institution is able to cover the Forum expenses considering that it counts as a scientific conference. Do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team if you need an invitation letter.
Will the speakers coming from very far have their accomodation fees covered by the GENEVA FORUM?
De la même manière que nous ne prenons pas en charge les frais de transports, nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas prendre en charge les hébergements de tous nos conférenciers.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide accommodation or travel expenses for all our speakers.

We do however offer low-cost housing options available in Geneva:
