  1. Dear Colleagues,


    This is David and it is regarding to collaborate with your company if you are interested, I will brief you about our requirements from you and based on your opinion, we will proceed further.


    More details:

    We are organizing a conference “European Diabetes Conference”, held conjointly with multifarious scientific associations, eminent researchers and scholars from all around the globe during July 20-21, 2020 in one of the world’s most beautiful place London, UK. The conference covers major areas in Diabetes Research, Endocrinology and Obesity. The potential attendees are Physicians, Diabetes Professionals, and diabetologists, Endocrinologists, Gynecologist, Pharmacists, Occupational Therapists, Healthcare Faculty, Healthcare Researchers and Students. It is an immense pleasure and privilege having here with us to honor your hard-earned scientific discoveries, innovations and would like you to share, extend and impart your valuable thoughts to the global scientific community.

    We request you to forward this message to those group of Doctors/ Clinicians/Academicians/ World-Class Experts/ Young Researchers/ Business Delegates from Industries and Talented Student communities will be participating in this prestigious event who are looking towards plan for an International Conference as well as refreshment trip.

    The registration fee for attendees ranges from $499 (for students) to $599. We also provide accommodation in the conference venue hotel for discounted prices.
    We will quote a price for the total number of attendees, which is usually 15% less than the total registration amount. That 15% will be your share. For example, if you provide 30 attendees, each of the attendees will be paying $599 to you. The total amount for 30 attendees is $17970. The 15% of this amount is $2695. So you will be paying us $15275 for 30 attendees. The same structure is applicable for accommodation fee also.

    You may include our conference in the holiday packages you offer to your clients and you may quote your own price for your clients. But you will be paying us only the 85% of conference registration fee for each attendee.

    Let me know if you need any clarification, so that we can discuss further.
