All fees mentioned are per person and do not include 21% Spanish VAT. ECMA needs to charge Spanish VAT on the registration fee (i.e. admission) as the place of supply of these services is where the event takes place physically. For Spanish companies the reverse charge rule applies based on Article 194 of the EU VAT Directive and no VAT will be charged.

To encourage a high level of participation from delegates from European Converters to register, ECMA offers a 25% discount to converter companies as of the 3rd delegate for the group. Please contact the ECMA Secretariat for more details.
