Pricing The WLN Board is very keen to promote our networking at conference and for all members firms to attend regularly. It’s very disappointing to the hosts to make all the efforts of setting up such an event, only for too many members to stay away. And we also want to promote a healthy mixture of both the more experienced partners and those who might attend for the first time. Healthy for the long term prosperity of WLN’s member firms. With all that in mind, the WLN fees* for this conference will be as follows: 

  • 1st delegate (from all firms) – not exceeding €480 each
  • 2nd and further delegate(s): will attract a discount from the above, to be confirmed with exact pricing; additonally we will offer a  special “1st timer” discount
  • Accompanying person – €tbc each
  • Saturday social programme – €tbc each
