The support is limited to cover conference registration*, travel expenses (round trip economy flight tickets only) and 4-night accommodation in one of the hotels recommended by CIMAM. Distribution of funds is set on a case-by-case basis for each recipient. CIMAM books and pre-pays all expenses directly (travel and accommodation) avoiding reimbursements to any grantee. Funds do not cover transportation to/from the airport, visa expenses, travel insurance and registration to the optional conference tours.
*Conference registration includes access to all conference sessions, lunches, dinners, refreshment breaks, access to organized visits and coach service to and from planned visits. All registered delegates also receive a copy of the 2018 Conference program and a courtesy tote bag.
