Homestay Options


In order to keep costs for participants manageable we are attempting to co-ordinate homestays with members of the ISLN network. Members of ISLN who provide a homestay will be refunded the cost of the conference dinner in the form of cashback before the dinner.

Homestay providers will provide a single or shared room (shared with another delegate) and will advise delegates as to how to get to and from the venues, and when possible share transport with them.
