    I am interested in participating in the pre-conference program. As I am an ex-pat in Belgium and entitled to a refund for the VAT and assuming that the 400 EUR do contain the VAT, could I please receive an invoice stating the VAT amount and receive reimbursement for it after payment?

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Best regards,

    Anita Sheehan
