CML Horizons 2020 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 – 5 nights of accommodation,
  • local transportation from Juan Santamaría International 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 Juan Santamaría 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 no 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 

Sponsor delegates participation

Sponsors' delegates are also expected to register at the registration website. Room bookings will then be made by our logistics agency. Pharma representatives are expected to book their own flights and settle their room charge 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. Costs for attending the conference, including the daily delegate rate and all meals, will be covered by us and will not be invoiced to pharma representatives.

Venue and Accommodation for CML Horizons 2020

San José is the capital of Costa Rica and found in the Central Valley.  It has become a modern, cosmopolitan city and is presently home a third of the country’s entire population. Founded in 1738 by Cabildo de Leon, San José was not made the capital until 1823.  

Today it is a sprawling metropolitan area that encompasses 44.62 sq km (17.2 sq mi) and a population of 365,799 people, which is roughly a third of Costa Rica's total population.  San José is the economic center of Costa Rica, home to a rich culture, historic architecture, and an exciting night life.

Located in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, San José has an average elevation of 1,161 meters above sea level.  Technically it lies in a torrid zone of tropical rainforest, but due to its elevation, it has a mild climate.  Temperatures range from 15 and 30 °C (59 and 86 °F), but it is also very windy so it can be cooler.  

The rainy season stretches from May to late November, but it isn't atypical for San José to experience rain and cloudiness during the dry season due to its elevation.

Within the city of San José there is a rich cultural history, including theaters and museums, and many bars and restaurants.  With one block you can find two of Costa Rica's most famous theaters, the Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica and the Teatro Popular Melico Salazar, and a variety of musical performances, acting, and art exhibits.  

The Gold Museum offers a rare collection of gold pre-Colombian artifacts from Latin American indigenous civilizations. The beautiful Lankester Botanical Garden is also located on the outskirts of the city.

Conference venue: Crowne Plaza Corobici

Address: Sabana Norte contiguo al Parque Metropolitano La Sabana, Mata Redonda, San José  2443-100, Costa Rica Tel: 506-2543-6000

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 

Conference fee and travel costs for representatives of the sponsors

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. Costs for attending the conference, including the daily delegate rate and all meals, will be covered by us and will not be invoiced to pharma representatives.

CML Horizons 2019 will take place in Lisbon, Portugal. All participants are expected to cover their own travel costs to Lisbon and to pay the conference fee which covers accommodation, local transportation from the airport and back, food, drinks and the cost of 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.

  • Hold a position where they can shape ongoing advocacy activities and initiate new ones
  • Be proficient in English
  • Preference will be given to applicants coming from countries with limited resources.

Scholarship types

We are offering two different types of scholarships, which will be given according to the needs of each applicant.
