More on the March INSOL Cape Town conference registration cost

 

Turnaround Management Association

 

5 members have already applied for INSOL membership via TMA in the past few days to qualify for the cheaper INSOL member conference registration fees.  But there are more members asking for information about the total conference cost.

Let's start at the beginning - you really need to read the INSOL conference brochure in any event, which you can download at Cape Town INSOL conference brochure.   The brochure contains a registration form, but you can also register electronically by clicking [here].

Registration fees are on page 8 of the brochure.   We are beyond the early bird cut off date, and only the key events are listed below that most members are likely to be interested in.   There are other Ancillary Meetings in the brochure.  The pricing structure is as understood from INSOL but stated in Rand terms.

FOR INSOL MEMBERS

300
  British pounds for the Turnaround and Reorganisation Ancillary Meeting on Saturday 17 March
+ 985
  British pounds for the main conference Sunday 18 - Tuesday 20 March
= 1285
  British pounds total
X 14
  (R14/British pound)
= R17 990
   
- R 5 397
  30% discount
=R12 593
  Total payable to INSOL before accommodation and flights
+R 730
  $100 to become an INSOL member via TMA - contact Lynn at admin@tma-sa.com to become an INSOL member. If you already are an INSOL member, disregard the R730.
 =R13 323
  Total

FOR NON-INSOL TMA-SA MEMBERS

This option is really redundant if you are a TMA-SA member - rather become an INSOL member too and inexpensively so as described above.

Notes:

  • Add accommodation and your traveling costs to the total.   Accommodation is reserved at the ArabellaSheraton and can be booked using the registration form until 16 January, but it seems expensive.   You may want to try the City Lodge which I understand is opposite the congress venue at the Waterfront.
  • The brochure states that the conference ends on 21 March but this is just to ensure that you attend the gala dinner Tuesday night before leaving on Wednesday - this has been confirmed with INSOL.
  • At time of writing, the exchange rates were R14/British pound and R7,3/US$.
