Payments Carried Forward from 2020 with Titania Hotel

In 2020, when we had first planned to meet in Athens, participants paid for accommodation at the Titania Hotel. The hotel carried forward these payments to 2023. In November 2022, the Titania Hotel announced that they are undertaking renovations during the time of the Annual Meeting and could no longer host our event.

The refunding of 2020 payments is in process. If you have not yet received a refund Jenny Stewart will contact you, or your organisation if appropriate, to advise on the what needs to be done to obtain your refund.
