VAT Regulations

 

Due to VAT regulations set out by the European Union, and specifically by Portugal, we are legally obliged to charge 23% Portuguese VAT on all in-person delegate registration fees regardless of the company’s country of origin or VAT registration status. For virtual tickets, Dutch VAT at 21% is applicable in some cases.

In some cases where an exhibition booth is requested, Portuguese VAT may or may not apply.  Likewise, for sponsorship, Dutch VAT at 21% may or may not apply.
