Delegation Registration Guidelines
Each delegation must register in order to participate in CEI 2017. Below are some preliminary guidelines for all delegations to follow and are subject to change:
Each delegation should be 2-4 student delegates and no more than 2 adult delegates. Countries can have multiple delegations, but should develop separate projects. Chaperone gender must match the gender of the youth. In others words if you have male students, you need a male chaperone and vice versa with females.
Adult Delegates: It is our goal to have all adults accompany youth with a project. If you would like to attend as a "professional" without youth, you will need to provide a compelling reason for attending the conference without student delegates.
Each delegation must complete our online registration form (available February 2017) containing information about the delegation.
Registration will not be final until fees are paid.
For Invitation Letters: If you require a letter of invitation for Visa purposes, please let us know right away so we can assist you with that process and get it started early.
Registration Fee: $445 per person (400 Euro) with standard accommodations (1-2 bedroom units and shared bathroom facility) Single Bedrooms (for adults/educators only) with semi-private bath and shared kitchen will be $545 per person (500 Euro).
Pre- and Post- Conference lodging: We will have lodging available on Friday June 30th and Saturday July 8 to accommodate delegation travel plans. Dormitory rooms are $35 per night per person and Lodge rooms for adults only will be $65 per person per night.
