The Closing Plenary finishes at 15:30 on Wednesday 20 June.

Where in Bangkok is the event?

Additional accommodation

The Marriott is able to offer the same group rate for the additional room between 3 days pre and 3 days post of the main event (from 15-23 June 2018). THB 3,500 for single occupancy/ THB 3,900 for double occupancy. Guests wishing to book extra nights should contact the Resource Alliance team at ifcasia@resource-alliance.org. Any additional nights required are at the guest’s own expense.

Check in / check out times

The standard check in time is 15:00, however, if the rooms are ready earlier the hotels will often let check ins happen sooner than this. Should that not be possible, they will let luggage be stored on site before your room is available. The check-out time is 12:00, therefore check-out will have to be completed before the closing plenary, however, once again luggage will be able to be stored onsite.

IFC Asia programme enquiries

What is a masterclass?

A masterclass is an intensive 5 ½ hour session which takes place on Monday 18 June, 11:30-13:00 and 14:00-18:00, with the same expert speaker(s) delivering in-depth and cutting edge content on a particular topic. We recommend delegates sign up for a masterclass to allow them to make the most of their time at IFC Asia and fully explore their chosen topic with one of our top speakers.

Once the masterclass is finished, the standard programme (from Tuesday morning to Wednesday afternoon) begins with workshops, big rooms, an exciting social programme and lots more taking place from. Delegates have the opportunity to attend up to six different sessions, each lasting one and a half hours in length.

IFC Asia booking enquiries

Deadline for registration

We would suggest you book as soon as possible to ensure your place at IFC Asia and to allow you time to make the necessary visa arrangements if travelling to Thailand from another country. We will close registrations once the conference is fully booked or two weeks before the conference is due to start, whichever comes first.

Paying conference fees onsite

We need to receive payment in advance of the conference start date (18th June 2018). Please let us know if you wish to make payment onsite, and we will ensure this facility is available for you.

Please note admittance to the conference will only be granted once full payment has been made.

 

Sharing Passes

We do not permit delegates to share passes. There are a few reasons for this, including security considerations, but most importantly you will not receive the full benefit of the IFC experience if you don’t attend the whole conference.

IFC Asia travel enquiries

Booking flights

All delegates are responsible for booking and paying for their own flights. The airport nearest to the conference is Suvarnabhumi Bangkok International Airport – BKK.

Taxi Booking

The Resource Alliance doesn’t provide transport from the airport to the hotel. It is very easy to find a taxi outside the airport – the journey to the hotel should take around 45 minutes and the fare should cost about 500THB.

IFC Asia payment queries

Payment on site

We are unable to take payment onsite at the conference itself. Full payment must be received at least two weeks before the conference.

Registration amendments

If you wish to make any amendments to your registration, please email us at ifcasia@resource-alliance.org
