BRUMUN is committed to keeping the costs to a minimum. However, we also want you to have as authentic a conference experience as possible, so the objective has been to find a balance which helps us achieve these two goals.
For the conference, we will hire a conference venue for days one and four when we need to have general assemblies - we also purchase stationary required to make the conference as authentic as possible (e.g. infoormation booklets, placards, identity badges etc...) and organise the printing of a daily newspaper. There is an option for a social event half way through the conference though there is a limit in relation to numbers for that, so places will be allocated to those who book them first.
Therefore, the main costs in running this conference are (1) Venue; (2) Stationary; (3) Printing; (4) Prizes; (5) lunch for two of the four days (since the conference venue is in the city centre, the students are given the freedom to organise their own lunch on days one and four - there are numerous food outlets near the conference facility); (6) Social Event
The cost for each delegate and chair-team member will be €90 per student.
Lunch for days one and four are NOT included in the €90 fee for the conference. Lunch options are as follows: (a) option to bring your own packed lunch; (b) option to go out for lunch (venue is in the city centre near a number of food outlets).
The cost for each member of the administration team and media team or chair will be €60 per student.
If you check the costs of other conferences, you will quickly see that these are really competitive costs for an MUN conference - our goal is a quality conference at low cost - the event is non-profit.
Unlike many MUN conferences, there is no charge for accompanying teachers and also there is no school fee - we appreciate your support before leading up to and during the conference and your dedication to promoting critical thinking, political awareness and public speaking at your schools.
