HUPE Conference

Event postponed2

Dear registered participants,

As you know, we had to postpone our conference and we are happy to announce new dates: 13th to 15th November 2020 in Valamar Poreč.

If you haven't changed your mind and are looking forward to our conference, we are already saving a place for you and you do not need to confirm your arrival once again. However, if you wish to withdraw your application and would like a full refund of the conference fee, please send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and include all the relevant data, eg. all the names, school and IBAN for refund. You can ask for FULL refund at any time until October 1, 2020. Please allow three weeks for refund, our treasurer is only one and she must prepare for online classes just like all of us do. After that date, we will not be returning any registrations. Valamar hotels has already refunded all the payments for accommodation.

Once again, all registrations made for the April conference will automatically be deferred to November and all confirmed speakers will have their proposal automatically accepted for inclusion in the programme.

Of course, new registrations for the conference will be possible. We are also happy to inform you that we have negotiated lower accommodation prices for November.

We will regularly post all the relevant information on our Facebook and HUPE webpage.

Stay healthy and positive, inspire and be inspired!

See you in November,
