CML Horizons 2019 Conference fee for regular delegates

A conference fee of EUR 500 per delegate will be invoiced to the participant in the name of the Leukemia Patient Advocates Foundation, Switzerland, in advance of the meeting. The conference fee covers

  • max 4 nights of accommodation,
  • local transportation from Lisbon airport to the conference and back.
  • food and drinks (breakfast, lunch and dinner), during the conference.
  • Free wifi internet in conference rooms, and in bedrooms too.
  • the general costs of the conference.

Participants are expected to cover their own travel to Lisbon International airport (e.g. flights). The conference fee does not cover incidental costs like bar, mini-bar, phone calls, taxi costs, upgrades for double rooms, relatives attending the conference, and any other non-official activities.

Payment of the conference fee must arrive before the start of the conference. It must also be paid in case of cancellations later than 30 days before the conference. The conference fee should be paid by wire transfer to the foundation. Should another postal address be required on the invoice for the conference fee, the delegate must provide a note during the electronic registration process, stating the full postal address and the name of the organization who will pay the conference fee.

For those that cannot find organisations or sponsors to cover the costs to attend the conference, see our Scholarship page

Sponsors' delegates are also expected to register at the registration website. Room bookings will then be made by the logistics agency. Pharma representatives are expected to settle their room costs at the hotel. We will organise their individual local transport to the conference venue if they provide us with their flight details at least two weeks before the conference.

We encourage everyone to seek sponsors in early 2019 to cover the travel and conference costs. However, we acknowledge that not everybody is able to find an organisation or sponsor to participate in CML Horizons 2019.

Therefore, a limited number of 25 scholarships, full or partial, are available for patient advocates who are interested in attending the conference and who cannot find sponsors for their attendance. Applications for these scholarships are invited from interested advocates. Those that are granted will receive an economy class return ticket to Lisbon and will not need to pay the conference fee.

Lisbon City Tour on Sunday

The city centre was destroyed by an earthquake in 1755 but was rebuilt by the marquês de Pombal. This seagirt city of multicoloured houses and elegant parks and gardens has been reconstructed as a bustling modern metropolis. In fact, Lisbon was designated a European City of Culture in 1994. The general outlines of the city remain as they have for hundreds of years and is still a city of balconies and vistas. Some of the most striking of the latter can be seen from the miradouros, the terraces maintained by the municipality on seven of its hillsides.

For those interested, we will be offering an optional 3.5-hour tour on Sunday afternoon. This will not be an official part of the program, and those who will like to join this tour will need to register at the registration website or at the hospitality desk at the hotel.

For any questions regarding the conference, please contact Lidija Pecova () +389 7838 8235 or Giora Sharf (
