JCI World Congresses are hosted in different countries around the world. In 2012 it will be in Taipei, Taiwan and in 2013 in Rio, Brazil. Brussels is only two hours from London on the Eurostar. This year’s conference therefore offers the fantastic opportunity to attend a world congress about as close as it can get!
There are at least 10 JCI London members planning to attend and we’d like to make it even more. JCI London members attending their first international event can apply for a bursary by downloading this form.
Here are details on how to join the JCI UK delegation:
Registration: Delegates are required to register direct with JCI Brussels – http://www.jciwc2011.be/ The cost is currently 350€ until 31/08/11, then its 375€ until 30/09/11, then its 450€ until the date of the congress.

Hotels: The JCI UK delegation official hotel is called Le Dome and is 300 meters from the congress HQ hotel and is very close to the metro station. 40 rooms are reserved at the Le Dome for the BANSI countries (JCI UK, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Malta). All you need to do is reserve the room direct with the COC and pay the hotel direct on departure. The cost is 112€ per room per night including breakfast and taxes. To book the hotel please use this link – www.resotel.be/jciuk Rooms will be available until 01/09/11, after which any remaining rooms will be released and your reservation will be subject to availability.
If you decided not to use this hotel that’s ok, if you can just let JCI UK International Director Carrie Green know where you are staying so we can make sure we can keep in touch that would be great.
Social events and Goodie Bags: These will be organised for the JCI UK delegation. More details will be coming soon!
