БРОНИРОВАНИЕ

Почему стоит бронировать через официальное Бюро по размещению WFH?

Бронирование через Бюро по размещению WFH дает вам множество преимуществ, в том числе следующие:

  • Гарантированные льготные цены в отелях, участвующих в программе Всемирного конгресса WFH 2024.
  • Отсутствие платы за бронирование или неожиданных расходов, поскольку все тарифы включают Wi-Fi и все налоги
  • Безопасные и надежные операции по бронированию
  • Специальный адрес электронной почты и сотрудники на месте для оказания помощи
  • Бесплатный трансфер до конференц-центра IFEMA и обратно

Официальный сайт WFH по бронированию отелей

Наиболее простым и безопасным способом бронирования является наша система онлайн-бронирования. Обращаем ваше внимание, что в режиме онлайн принимаются только платежи по кредитным картам (Visa или MasterCard). Гостиницы будут доступны до 22 марта 2024 г. (или до тех пор, пока блоки отелей не будут распроданы). После 22 марта 2024 г. номера в отелях будут предоставляться в зависимости от наличия свободных мест, и их стоимость не может быть гарантирована. Для проверки наличия свободных номеров после 22 марта 2024 г. отправьте электронное письмо на адрес [email protected].

Групповое бронирование предполагает заказ десяти и более номеров. Необходимо назначить одно контактное лицо, которое будет выполнять функции координатора группы и отвечать за всю переписку с менеджером WFH по размещению.

Если вы хотите забронировать десять и более номеров, пожалуйста, проверьте список отелей, которые вы предпочитаете, скачайте и заполните форму группового запроса на отель, указав необходимое количество номеров в сутки, и отправьте ее по электронной почте на адрес [email protected]. Пожалуйста, не отправляйте ее непосредственно в отель.

Бюро по размещению WFH ответит на ваш запрос в течение трех (3) рабочих дней. Пожалуйста, обратите внимание, что блоки отелей распределяются в порядке поступления заявок.

Требуемый депозит можно внести посредством кредитной картой (Visa или Mastercard) или банковского перевода. С 1 марта 2024 года оплата будет производиться только кредитной картой. Любые запросы или просьбы о предоставлении дополнительной информации, изменении или отмене бронирования номеров следует направлять в Бюро по размещению WFH в письменном виде. Просьба не обращаться непосредственно в отель.

    1. Оплата кредитной картой: Бюро по размещению WFH спишет с вашей кредитной карты депозит, равный стоимости одной (1) ночи проживания. Этот депозит не подлежит возврату. За 50 (пятьдесят) дней до начала мероприятия (1 марта 2024 г.) с вашей кредитной карты будет списана оставшаяся сумма за весь срок проживания. Бронирование номеров будет подтверждено после того, как Бюро по размещению WFH получит ваш заполненный запрос на бронирование с указанием номера действующей кредитной карты.
    2. Банковский перевод: Если вы не можете предоставить гарантию по кредитной карте (Visa или Mastercard), пожалуйста, заполните заявку на бронирование, используя инструмент онлайн-бронирования, и выберите в качестве способа оплаты банковский перевод. Вам будет выставлен счет на предоплату в размере ста процентов (100%) от общей стоимости проживания в долларах США. Бронирование отеля не будет подтверждено, если полная оплата не будет получена в течение семи (7) рабочих дней после получения счета. Пожалуйста, не осуществляйте банковский перевод до получения счета. Информацию о нашем счете в долларах США можно получить здесь.

Подтверждение бронирования отеля будет отправлено по электронной почте в течение 48 часов после получения запроса на бронирование. В подтверждении будет указано название и адрес отеля, а также стоимость проживания за ночь. Пожалуйста, не связывайтесь с отелем напрямую, поскольку все бронирования будут осуществляться Бюро по размещению WFH.

Любое изменение или отмена регистрации должны быть направлены в письменном виде по адресу [email protected]. Вам будет направлено подтверждение об изменении или отмене бронирования. На все запросы распространяются следующие условия:

  • Изменение имени не допускается
  • Если бронирование на 100% предоплачено, запрос на отмену должен быть получен не позднее 1 марта 2024 года.
  • Возврат средств будет произведен за вычетом административного сбора в размере стоимости одной ночи проживания
  • При отмене бронирования после 1 марта 2024 года возврат средств не производится
  • Если вы оплатили только депозит за 1 ночь проживания, депозит возврату не подлежит
  • Если вам необходимо выехать раньше запланированного срока, возврат средств не производится
  • Все возвраты (если применимо) будут обработаны в течение 30 дней после окончания мероприятия

Мы просим всех участников одновременно зарегистрироваться и забронировать номер в отеле, воспользовавшись ссылкой на онлайн-регистрацию здесь. Это позволит связать регистрацию на мероприятие с бронированием номера в отеле. Это также позволит получить наилучшую цену за номер. Для тех, кто не может зарегистрироваться для участия в Конгрессе в данный момент, но хотел бы забронировать номер в отеле, просим обращаться по адресу [email protected].

TREATMENT ROOM

A treatment room will be available for all participants at the WFH 2024 World Congress. For details on the medical treatment in Spain, bringing your own factor, the Congress treatment room, and more, see below.

When planning your trip to Spain for the WFH 2024 World Congress, we encourage you to take the following into account.

  • Free medical treatment is generally not available to foreign visitors to Spain
  • It is recommended that you purchase personal travel insurance for your visit to Spain to cover emergency medical treatment and health care in the case of any other illness or accident that might occur, even if you cannot be insured for your pre-existing medical condition(s)
  • In general, you should bring enough clotting treatment for hemophilia with you for your entire stay
  • If you are travelling to different parts of Spain before or after the WFH 2024 World Congress, note that clotting factor product for an emergency may be limited to larger hospitals. The host NMO, The Federación Española de Hemofilia (Fedhemo) website provides a list of hemophilia treatment centres in Spain (click here to find out more).
  • A treatment room, stocked with donated clotting treatment, will be available during Congress

You may bring a supply of prescribed medications into Spain for your personal use without a permit, provided they are commercially prepared and manufactured. This includes your regular prescribed medicines and clotting factor products.

Helpful hints for all medicines and clotting factor products

  • Keep the medicine in its original packaging with the product labelling visible
  • Make sure you bring a letter written in English, from your doctor explaining that you require these medicines and/or clotting factor concentrates for your medical condition and that you have been prescribed a less than three-month supply to bring to Spain with you. Your doctor’s letter should indicate if you need to carry needles or syringes in addition to administration devices supplied by the manufacturer. For a letter template, click here.
  • Declare your medicines to Spanish customs and provide the letter from your doctor
  • It is advised that you carry your medicines in your carry-on baggage, not in checked baggage
  • It is your responsibility to store your medicines and clotting factor in packaging that meets manufacturers’ advice for temperature control, and to check with your airline that your cold store packaging meets all security requirements

A bleeding disorders treatment room will be set up for the duration of Congress in the North Convention Centre (NCC), on Level 2, in the Colón meeting room, close to the plenary room and all session rooms. Specialized physicians and nurses will be available to assess emergency and semi-urgent situations related to your bleeding disorder and to assist with infusions. Physiotherapists will be available in the same location at designated times, from April 20 to 25, to support patients who are having an acute or sub-acute bleeding episode. Volunteers will assist delegates to get to the treatment room from a treatment room desk in the foyer outside the exhibition hall. A limited number of scooters, wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers are available upon request.

Their belief in educating future leaders is clear in their investment in the Youth Leadership Workshops, which has led to the training of over 50 young adults. They also support workshops devoted to educating providers and patient leaders on how to collect and use data to advocate for better patient care. Their staff generously volunteer their time as trainers and as well as serving on various committees.

WFH President's Award - Recipients

National Bleeding Disorders Foundation

The National Bleeding Disorders Foundation helps advance our mission on several fronts. They inspire others to follow their lead as a founding champion of the NHF Chapter Challenge. Their commitment to equality of access is demonstrated in their support of the Cornerstone Initiative, which lays the foundation for care in the world's most underserved regions, as well as programs that aim to raise awareness and improve care of women with bleeding disorders and those with von Willebrand disease. We also benefit from their steadfast engagement with various programs including the WFH Twinning Program and their individual leaders’ contribution to our leadership and committees.
