Applications for Special Events and Exhibits
The tenth sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation and the Subsidiary Body for
Scientific and Technical Advice will be held at the Maritim Hotel, Bonn on 31 May to 11 June 1999. As in
previous sessions, special events may be organised at lunchtime and in the evenings, and exhibits may be
displayed in the meeting facility, in accordance with the conditions of the secretariat. Interested
organizations which are already accredited, are requested to read the conditions before applying using the
appropriate registration forms. Only organizations accredited as observers may apply to hold a special
event or an exhibit.
The demand for special events and exhibits has been steadily
increasing over the Convention meeting process. In order to accommodate as many applications as possible
and to allow maximum participation, the secretariat encourages organizers of both special events and
exhibits to consolidate with other kindred organizations by having joint events or to split their time and
or space allocation. In the interest of providing equal opportunities to all accredited organizations, the
secretariat may find it necessary to accept only one event per organization.
Organizers are requested to return the completed registration forms
by 10 May 1999. This will allow a better scheduling of events and allow an earlier publication of the
schedule on the web.
The secretariat would like to make as much information on the content
of the events and exhibits available to the interested public. In order to facilitate this we are
requesting each organizer to submit a concise synopsis of circa 100 words as a summary of the actual event
or exhibit highlighting the theme and discussion topics. This should be submitted to the secretariat the
day after the event in order that the information may be made available through our website.
