3rd Conference Mailing

Dear Members and participants of ILGA-Europe’s Annual Conference,

We are only a few weeks away from yet another amazing ILGA-Europe conference. With over 450 registered participants, dozens of speakers and other speakers, more than 40 workshops and an extensive social programme, we are working hard to make the conference an unforgettable experience. 

We are now sending you information regarding the Conference as well as all documents pertaining to the third conference mailing.

This Third Conference Mailing includes the following documents:

Please carefully read all materials, including information about the elections taking place at the conference, as well as explanations on other elements that relate to the statutory parts of the conference. You can find all listed documents on ILGA-Europe's webpage under 3rd Conference Mailing.

We also want to take this opportunity to repeat important information regarding the Conference opening and closing day, as well to update you about some important programme information.

Opening and closing of the Conference

Participants of ILGA-Europe’s Annual Conference will be welcomed at Opening Reception on Wednesday, 28 October at 8 pm. The official start of the Conference is scheduled for Thursday, 29 October at 9 am. The Conference will end with the Gala dinner and Closing party on Saturday evening, 31 October. The local hosts are organising an optional Beach Brunch on Sunday 1 November.

Networking space

This year, the conference participants will again be able to take part in the ‘networking space’. The idea of the networking space is to provide participants to the conference with a ‘space’, where they can present work of their organisation. It is here where you can get to know about work of other organisations, and meet each other in an informal way. It is possible to bring materials to the networking space that can be presented at a market stand. It is our hope that this will be a good way for participants to establish better contacts during the Conference.

If you want to reserve a physical place for your organisation at the Network space you need to contact Boris Balanetkii-Schlütter before 20 October.

We strongly encourage you to be considerate and not to bring large quantity of printed material to the networking space, and also bring materials not only in your native languages (English preferred).

We are looking forward to see all of you soon in Athens
