The registration for the conference will start soon. We are hoping to use Eventbrite for the registration process for the Conference and will let you know when that has been arranged. The conference cost per delegate is EUR 250 for GREF members.

Please note that you only register for the conference with GREF, and you should separately book the hotel accommodation.


The Conference will take place at the Grand Terminus Hotel, Bergen. Rooms have been set aside for delegates of the Conference and you are asked to contact the hotel directly to make your own booking for your delegation. There is no reservation code but please let them know you are attending the GREF Conference.

We hope to see you all in Bergen for what is shaping up to be a very interesting couple of days.
