ÚLTIMA HORA: ALOJAMIENTO - Se han negociado unas tarifas especiales para los asistentes presenciales del Financial Congress 2011. Más información aquí.

The event has a double format, FACE TO FACE + ONLINE.

PHYSICAL: The Congress will be held in the Euskalduna Conference Centre in Bilbao on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th June 2011 in a room with capacity for more than 600 people.

And to achieve participation for all, people will be able to ASK QUESTIONS live to the Congress via Facebook and from home, work or wherever they happen to be, and the questions will be answered live by the experts present.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. It will be free. Both the physical and virtual aspects. With this proviso: that those registering to attend the physical Congress (this option will be available on the website) only do so with the firm intention of taking part, otherwise you will be depriving people who could register later of the chance, people who are sure of being able to attend.

However, in the meantime, whether your aim is to attend physically or online, select the option "I shall attend" on facebook (both those of you who will attend physically, and those who will take part free from your computers).
