The mission's program runs from Tuesday September 17th till Friday September 20th. For information on the program see the tab 'Program'.

 

Confirmation of participation

Please note that your participation in this mission will be confirmed by the organising parties. The organising parties reserve the right to reject your application if they believe your company does not fit the envisaged profile. Moreover, there is limited capacity for this mission. Therefore, please wait with booking flights and hotels until your participation has been confirmed.

 

Costs

The participation fee is €500 ex. VAT per participant. This fee includes programming, most lunches and dinners, and local transport. Hotels, flights and other out-of-pocket costs are not included.

Please note: for Dutch companies who decide to combine participating in this mission with the BOSteRDAM program a discount will be applied. If you sign up for the BOSteRDAM program before the mission, your participation in the mission will be free of charge. If you decide to participate in the BOSteRDAM program after the mission has ended, we will detract the mission fee from the BOSteRDAM fee. For more information on the program see the 'BOSteRDAM Cleantech Link' tab.

 

Booking flights and accomodation

Accomodation

The hotel of our choice is Porter Square Hotel, priced approximately $250 per night (depending on the moment of booking). We recommend you stay at this hotel along with other Dutch and Scandinavian participants. Please note that through InnovationQuarter you can get a 15% discount for this hotel - we'll provide you with the discount code once you have registered. 

If you are travelling on a budget you might want to consider Airbnb as well.  Should you want to get in touch with other mission participants to book something jointly, please let us know.

 

Flights

Considering the program starts the 17th at 15.30 we recommend you arrive either on the 16th, or 17th in the early afternoon. The following flights are most suitable. Indirect flights are considerably cheaper. 

When signing up for this mission, we offer you the possibility to have us take care of booking your flights. Our travel agent, Maritime Travel Services (MTS) in Rotterdam, gets things done for you in a matter of hours, and will offer you a tailored itinerary at no extra costs to you
