Skopje Logo

The 64th Europa Forum will be held in Scopje on 25th to 27th October 2018. It will be hosted by our colleagues in District 132 Macedonia , at the Macedonian Philharmonic and will follow the theme “Awareness & Empathy”.

Registration is only available on-line from a secure website via the official Forum Website. Registration fees prior to 1st July 2018 are for Lion members €215.00, Non-members €135.00 and Leos €70.00. From the 1st July 2018 the fees for Lion members and None-members will increase to €240.00 and €150.00, respectively. The last date for Registration is 27th October 2018.

The Gala Dinner and Host Evening are optional at an additional cost of €50 and €43 per person, respectively.

There are a range of excursions on offer that are book-able via the official Forum website.

There are a range of hotels offered by the officially appointed travel agents via the official forum website. These comprise of packages for varying lengths of stay but once booked require full payment and I suspect that a non-cancellation policy applies. From my investigations it appears that better prices with flexible conditions and a greater variety of hotels close to the convention centre are on offer by using a specialised comparison site such as Trivago. I and a number of others from our District have elected to stay at the Alexander Square Boutique Hotel that I suggest would be suitable for our delegation.

WizzAir is the only airline in the British Isles that operates direct flights to Skopje, a single flight on selected days leaving Luton at 8:55am and the return from Skopje at 6:15am local time. The return cost including baggage and administration fees is currently around £247.00 per person. There are other options available from both Heathrow and Gatwick at comparable prices that involve transfers and thus considerably longer journey times.

If members attending can let me know I will ensure that you are kept advised directly of any changes or developments as they arise. Equally, if you require any further help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
