Dear TechNet Community,
We are very excited to announce that Registration to the 15th TechNet Conference is now open!
For this occasion we are launching a 15th TechNet Conference webpage: www.technet-21.org/en/home/technet-conference/2017
This living webpage will regularly post the latest information related to this year’s conference on the theme of “Building the next generation of immunization supply chains”.
Currently, the page is focusing on:
- How to register to participate in the conference;
- Providing administrative information (including hotel booking); and
- How to express your interest in showcasing or presenting anything during the key side events: Manufacturers Marketplace (MM), Innovations Cafe (IC) and Project Gallery (PG)
In the future we will start posting new information from the TechNet Conference Planning Committee such as the draft agenda and list of participants…etc.
Until then, please take note of important updates listed below on registration and deadlines, hotel booking, accommodation warning and how to submit an expression of interest for the MM, IC and PG.
If you have any specific questions, Carmen Au and Jacqueline Lashley have joined the TechNet Secretariat to help organize this event. In the future, you will most likely get emails or TechNet postings related to the Conference from them. So do keep an eye out for their names in your inbox. You can also reach out to them directly using this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional important updates are provided below:
Registration is now open until 31 July 2017.
Please complete the conference registration form available on the TechNet-21 website if you wish to attend the TechNet Conference. You can access the conference registration form on the 15th TechNet Conference webpage: www.technet-21.org/en/home/technet-conference/2017
Note that in order to register for the TechNet Conference, you will need a TechNet-21 account. If you do yet have an account, please sign up now so that you can access the registration page: www.technet-21.org/en/register-new-user
Space will be limited so we will not be able to guarantee that all registered participants will be able to attend. We can confirm, however, that if you don’t register by 31 July 2017, you won’t be able to participate.
2. Hotel Booking
The venue for the Conference is the Hotel Cascais Miragem. We have reserved a limited block of rooms at the Hotel Cascais Miragem at a discounted rate. If you would like to book your room with the Miragem, please use the hotel booking form available on the Conference webpage.
3. Accommodation Warning
Cascais is a small seaside resort with limited hotels which will fill up fast for October. We’ve been informed that general hotel availability is rapidly dropping. Whether you decide to stay at the Hotel Cascais Miragem or not, we strongly recommend that you book your accommodation now to avoid having difficulties finding a hotel room. In other words, it’s easier to book as soon as possible to cancel later, than wait and get caught without a room.
4. Administrative Note
To help participants with their planning, we have prepared an administrative note with key information. We recommend that you download this from the TechNet Conference webpage.
5. Express your interest in organizing something during the planned Side Events
For those of you that wish to propose something to showcase or present during the key side events (Manufacturers Marketplace (MM), Innovations Cafe (IC) and Project Gallery (PG)), please return the Expression of Interest form back to the TechNet Secretariat by 5 June. Background information on these three side events and the EOI template are available for download off the TechNet Conference webpage
