If your application is paid for by a company to whom different VAT rules apply, please mention your VAT number in the registration form, after which we will send you a separate invoice. Please note that this event requires you to register before purchasing your ticket. This means you will not be required to pay before we approve the current registration request. We also include a 3% processing fee charged by credit card companies and PayPal, along with a €10 fee charged by Eventzilla. For our 2023 workshops we increased our fees to match inflation and additional labor costs.
