Time is running out to book a place at the 2017 World Credit Union Conference at the special early bird rate.

This year’s premier global credit union event is being held in Vienna, Austria from 23 to 26 July, and delegates can make a significant saving of US$100 by booking their place before the early bird rate expires on Friday 19 May.

The World Credit Union Conference is organised by the World Council of Credit Unions, and more than 1,800 credit union staff and volunteers from over 55 countries are expected to attend this year’s event, which focuses on networking and educational sessions geared towards finding solutions to today's industry challenges.

As well as saving on the cost of a delegate pass, an US$80 saving is also available on the Executive Series if booked at the early bird rate. The Executive Series involves intimate educational and networking sessions led by the conference keynote speakers over lunch or breakfast. It is perfect for peer connections, candid discussions and fresh ideas, as well as a chance to spend more time with some of the high profile figures who will address the conference – “big data” expert Susan Etlinger, TV’s Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec and branding expert Simon Mainwairing.

Other optional activities delegates can register for include an exclusive performance by the historic Vienna Boys’ Choir, a very special river boat cruise on the Danube, and a series of day trips including a city tour, a Viennese waltz lesson and wine tasting.

Bookings are open now, and as the only British member of the World Council, ABCUL member credit unions are eligible for a very significant saving on top of the early bird discount by booking at the World Council member rate. So don’t forget to save US$100 by booking your place before 19 May.
