Annual Meeting and Symposium of the Taxonomic Databases Working Group
Missouri Botanical Garden
15 - 22 October 2006



Why should you register now for TDWG 2006?

1. It's cheaper to register!

A late registration penalty fee of 50 $US will apply after 13 September 2006.

2. It's cheaper for a room at the Recommended Hotel

The deadline for hotel discount is 13 September 2006.

A number of registered delegates have indicated their intention to 
use the Recommended Hotel but have not yet made their hotel booking. 
Please do so as soon as possible. You MUST do so by 13 September to 
receive the discounted rate. You are not required to pay up front 
(but you must guarantee the booking with a credit card) and can 
cancel if necessary without penalty up to 15:00 local time on the day 
before you booked to arrive. The hotel booking URL is now being given 
on your Meeting registration confirmation e-mail. If you have an 
older version of the confirmation please contact me for the URL.

3. We, the meeting Organisers, really do need to know NOW how many 
delegates to expect. It strains the relationship with our hosts 
(Missouri Botanical Garden) if we keep on reserve meeting rooms and 
facilities we don't need. If you register late it makes the local 
Organiser's job 10 times more difficult arranging catering, transport 
and administration assistance.

4. If insufficient delegates register early for the Banquet we may 
have to cancel it completely - remember what a great social occasion 
it was in St. Petersburg? - it will be too bad if you are 
disappointed when you arrive in St. Louis because you did not book 
early enough.

5. We keep TDWGs standing costs down (and so YOUR membership & 
registration fees!) if we can plan early.

What are you waiting for? Why not register TODAY? Questions? Ask me NOW.

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting if you receive this 
message more than once.
