CONGRESS UPDATE 225 February 2019The 2019 Congress is being held at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.Registration will cost €100 for ICOMBO Level One members, and €180 for Level Two members.Accommodation options are not yet available.ICOMBO WORKSHOP – 28th NovemberWe are interested to hear from ICOMBO members regarding suggested topics for discussion at theworkshop, and perhaps a topic for future research.

I am particularly interested in hearing from aboutParental Leave situations in different countries – are multiple birth families receiving better benefits thanfamilies with single births? Is there something ICOMBO could do? Is this something of value to you andyour organisation, or do you have a more important topic to discuss? Please contact me atchair@icombo.org and let me know what you think.Registration for Congress is now open

If you wish to submit an abstract to the Congress, for a poster or a presentation during one of thesessions, here is the link

At the moment, there is nothing on the Congress website about accommodation for Congress. I havecontacted the organisers to get further information. I will pass it on when I hear something.I have heard from a few of our members who have confirmed that they will be attending, and will also bestaying in Hong Kong for a few days after Congress for some sightseeing.

My husband John will betravelling with me, and we also plan to stay until about 3rd or 4th December. Perhaps we will do somesightseeing together ??? I expect that we will be staying at a hotel near the congress venue while thecongress is on, and I will probably transfer to another hotel closer to the tourist areas of Hong Kong forthe last few days.

I will forward more details to any people who are interested, just let me know.
