Why is there German VAT (19%) on registration fees?

According to articles 53 and 54 of the European VAT Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 the place of supply of services in respect of admission to a.o. scientific, educational or similar events, shall be the place where those events actually take place. Consequently, local VAT must be charged on the admission fees to such events. In this respect German VAT is levied on the admission fee to our 58th Annual Meeting in Berlin, Germany.
Insofar as and to the extent that you are entitled to deduct VAT in your own country, the German VAT can be reclaimed.
As from the 1st of January 2011 European taxable persons must reclaim foreign VAT electronically (via an electronic refund portal) in their own member state (EU Directive 2008/9/EC from 12 February 2008).
In summary, VAT charges are applicable to all attendees, regardless of their status as an entrepreneur, possession of a valid VAT registration number, or location within or outside the EU. Local VAT will be charged on the admission fees for the event.

How can I see who is participating?

The attendance list will be made available by the latest end of July 2024 to registered and paid MEMBER delegates. The list will be accessible in a dedicated Attendee Hub and accordingly to the visibility preference of each delegate.

EPCA’s Badge Policy "No Badge No Entry"

EPCA Delegate Badge

Access to EPCA activities will be allowed only to people wearing a #EPCA58 delegate badge. Our policy is not to reprint badges or replace lost badges. If you lose your badge, you will be able to purchase a new registration at the current on-site rates, but only if on-site registration will be offered. Please keep track of your badge and make sure you bring it each day.

EPCA Badge Policy

EPCA Delegate Badge

A few days prior to the event, registered delegates will receive an email that includes their unique participant QR code. Alternatively, log in to the Attendee Hub and click on the E-Ticket button, for the personalized QR code.
Simply present this code at one of the badge kiosks at any partnering hotel (namely InterContinental Berlin -or- Pullman Berlin Schweizerhof -or- Crowne Plaza Berlin City Centre -or- Berlin Palace -or- Hotel Berlin, Berlin), a photo will be taken and the event badge will be printed and handed over to you.

Onsite badge Pick-up

At #EPCA58, we value the security and exclusivity of our events. As such, the delegate badge is a vital identification document throughout the event. Please be advised of the following guidelines:

  • Badge Access: Access to all official events, including the opening walking dinner, requires the possession of a valid delegate badge.
  • Event Registration: To attend activities e.g. the walking dinner, make sure you have registered for the event online. Only registered participants will be allowed entry.
  • Lost Badges: In the unfortunate event of losing your delegate badge, kindly note that replacements will not be issued.

We strongly advise you to keep your badge secure at all times.

People who have not registered and therefore cannot present a valid event badge can still access the public areas of the participating hotels like the lobby, restaurant or bar, but will not be accepted in any EPCA area or its member companies use for meetings. For member company events taking place in the EPCA partner hotels, please note the “No Badge No Access” policy is enforced.

Guest Badges

A set of guest badges is provided to companies having booked a meeting room or -table with EPCA. Please note: those guest badges only provide access to the meeting room /-table and are not an #EPCA58 Delegate Badge.

The Lufthansa Group airlines bring people together - every day, all around the world. The global route network of Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings offers optimal connection and combination options, so you will benefit from quick and direct flights to the event. You will reach the booking platform via this link https://www.lufthansa.com/de/en/meetings-and-events-delegates and with the event code BEAPYSJ.

Airport information
More than 2700 flights a week land in Berlin, with 52 international and 7 national airlines offering 154 connections to 50 countries – among them low-cost airlines such as Easyjet, Germanwings, and Ryanair. So, the chances of finding yourself a suitable flight in the capital are pretty good.But how to find the fastest way to the city center?

BER Airport is connected to the rail and road network. Airport Express and regional trains run together four times an hour from the airport station to Berlin Central Station. The railway station is located in Terminal 1 on level U2. The bus stops A 1-8 for local buses are located on the arrivals level of T1. From there, Terminal 2 is also just a few minutes' walk away; follow the signs.

In addition, the S-Bahns S9 and S45 run every 20min from station "BER Airport" to Berlin city centre. 

You can find more detailed information on Berlin’s airport under www.berlin-airport.de.

 

Offset your CO2 emissions

If you cannot or do not want to do without your car, or if you travel by plane, you can offset your CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, it is not always so easy to find the right project for a donation or the right kind of carbon offset scheme. But when it comes to choosing the most effective CO2-reducing projects, such worldwide organisations as Global Changer can help. 

In Berlin

Use public transportation (BVG  www.bvg.de). Use environmentally compatible, rent a bike, public means of transportation or walk to the different event locations.

 

 

Sustainability practices at #EPCA58

We aim to organize the 58th Annual Meeting of EPCA as green event according to the Germen Eco-label guideline for Green Meetings & Green Events.

Climate change is not a myth and natural resources are finite. Responsible consumption and production are at the core of the UN’s SDG 12. At EPCA we want to contribute to a clean future by choosing whenever possible sustainable and green venues, suppliers and products. SDG 12 goes hand in hand with SDG 13, which is a call to take immediate action to combat climate change and its impact. As we know that the Annual Meeting has a significant impact on the environment, this is also where we can make the biggest difference. Here’s what we do to support this goal:

#EPCA58 is paperless - Avoid unnecessary use and distribution of paper collaterals

Materials and waste: Whether printed or digital, all communication has an impact. The collateral produced for an event is an important contributor to its environmental footprint. The flyers, banners and other needed communications have an impact that depends on their volumes, materials used, finish and format. Furthermore, promotional material, in various forms by company members and different publications, that were frequently distributed at EPCA's Annual Meeting had an environmental footprint in its production phase and contributed to the event’s waste. As a big portion (80%+) of this was discarded at former EPCA events our Annual Meeting is since 2022 paperless.

Offsetting our carbon footprint

EPCA plants trees in partnership with activities in the destination or by supporting WeForest to offset the carbon footprint of our activities. WeForest restores threatened forests and landscapes in tropical regions and biodiversity hotspots. Their focus is the well-being of the communities where they work.

Efforts related to the venue and F&B

Reducing food waste, water and energy consumption; we encourage all delegates to support the recycling of materials during and post-event.

Official Opening Walking Dinner on Monday 7 October 2024: In order to raise awareness of food waste, EPCA is asking all delegates to make a sensible choice as to whether or not they will be able to attend the dinner. Please only select the option to attend if you are sure that you will be able to join us. EPCA may charge a (no-show) fee to encourage delegates to honour their commitment. This initiative aims to reduce food waste caused by delegates who do not attend the dinner.

Please use selective waste units in all hotels where provided and refrain from single-use packaging during your stay in Berlin. 

Stimulate the EPCA community to take action

We ask our attendees, partners and sponsors to make conscious choices when it comes to transport, travel, collaterals, food, water and electricity consumption.

A meaningful contribution to the community.
Instead of traditional giveaways, EPCA has chosen to direct these funds to a local charity. In doing so, EPCA is making a distinctive and lasting impact.

We wholeheartedly thank you for your active participation in our endeavor to foster "The Power of Action"!
