Event registration

Post by Maarten » Sat Nov 02, 2019 5:31 pm

Hi Friends

The registration for the 12th Leonard Cohen Event in Ghent is now open!

The official dates are August 7-9 2020 but we might have some pre- and post-Event programs so make your plans accordingly. :D
Our event is not commercial, so the participation fees are required to cover all the expenses associated with organizing an international event including the venues, bands, the hiring of technical and musical equipment, the souvenirs and so on.

Please carefully read how to proceed to registrate for the Event below!


1) Send an email to maarten.massa@me.com

Include the following information:
  • Name(s)
  • Forum name(s) (if you are a registered member of the Leonard Cohen Forum)
  • Email address(es)
  • Mobile phone number(s) (please include your country code aswell, eg. +32 473 ...)
  • City and country of residence
  • T-shirt size(s), male/female (a size chart with measurements will be made available later and you will be able to edit your size if needed)
  • Indicate if you are paying by international bank transfer (for EU) or PayPal.
  • Let us know if you, for some reason, don't want your name to be shown on the online Event pages.

2) Pay the registration fee

2a) Registration fee
  • Early bird registration: €160 (available until December 31 2019) --- the Early Bird registration is now closed ---
  • Normal registration: €180 (starting from January 1 2020)

2b) How to pay the registration fee

1/ International bank transfer (EU)

> SEPA transfer is the fastest, cheapest and prefered way of payment if your country is a SEPA member.

> Choose "Send and request" and use the "Send" tab
> Recipient account: maarten.massa@me.com
> Choose "Sending to a friend" to avoid unnecessary PayPal fees!
> Make sure The Event will receive the full amount! This means that you have to pay all the PayPal fees for both ends of the transaction!
> No problem if you have no PayPal account or any balance on your existing account – you will be able to pay through their secure services by your credit card.

3/ Other methods of payment

> Credit card holders may pay through PayPal even if they don't have an account there (also remember to pay the fee!)
> Other payments can not be accepted. Sorry, we can not accept cheques!


3) Registration confirmation

After a few days (upto a week) you will receive a confirmation email when your email and payment have been received. Your email address will be included in a mailing list that will be used solely to inform you about The Leonard Cohen Event, but everything will be posted on this forum aswell.


4) Cancellation policy
  • If cancelled before Jan 15 2020, 75 % of the fee will be refunded (no refunds for the PayPal fees!)
  • if cancelled before March 15 2020, 50 % of the fee will be refunded
  • After March 15 2020 there will be no refunds
  • The registrant has the right to transfer the registration to another person (and be able to get the whole fee refunded from that person)

5) Notes
  • Use @LCGhent2020 and #LCGhent2020 on social media if you post anything related to our Event!
  • The Event is organized by Maarten Massa and his Team, The Leonard Cohen Files and The Leonard Cohen Forum
  • If you have any questions, post them here or email me at the email address stated above.

I am looking forward to seeing many friends -old and new- in Ghent in August 2020!

Hi all

Just a gentle reminder that the last month for the early bird registration has started, so if you are planning to come to Ghent for the Event and you want to make use of the early bird discount, make sure to register before the end of 2019!

Meanwhile, a list with confirmed participants can be found here:

All good things

Hi friends

First of all: my very best wishes for the New Year!
Now 2020 has begun, the Early Bird registration period is over and I'm proud to announce we have already received over a hundred registrations! The Event is really looking great and I'm sure you will all enjoy your time in Ghent. I will post more details once we have made the final arrangements for a couple of more items.

If you haven't found the time to register yet, make sure it's on your list of New Year's resolutions! :-)

All the best
Maarten
