Over 600 Registered to Attend #SBCCSummit; Registration Extended to January 22

Over 600 practitioners have registered for the inaugural International SBCC Summit, an event that will bring together social and behavior change communication professionals from around the world. Summit organizers recognize the high demand to attend the event; therefore an extended registration period has been put into place. Registrations will be accepted up until January 22, 2016, 11:59 PM ET OR until the event reaches capacity – whichever comes first.

Those who register in this extended time frame and need a visa to travel to Ethiopia need to be aware there may be a need to procure visa clearance on their own. Currently, summit organizers are sending attendees’ information to Ethiopian Immigration Authorities to process clearance to apply for a visa. More information on visas is available here.
