Greetings ,

Best wishes. This is a quick update on some aspects of the forthcoming What Works? SBCC Summit, Nusa Dua, Indonesia 16th to 20th April, 2018

  1. ParticipationOver 900 people have registered to attend the Summit. This is excellent. When combined with the 1,300 abstracts submissions received it is further demonstration of the relevance and dynamism of this field of work.
  2. Registration deadline extensionSome organizations have asked for a little more time to register as they work to decide who will attend, secure funding and get travel approved. The Summit venue capacity is 1,200 maximum. For everyone the deadline for registration at this link has been extended to March 30, 2018. Please note that it is first come first served so when we reach the 1,200 number that will be it!
  3. Opportunities to highlight the work of your organisation and support the SummitA reminder (prompt and prod!) that there are the following ways in which your organisation can both heighten the focus on your work and support the Summit itself. Please do give strong consideration to:
