HOST OR BE HOSTED suggested rule of thumb:
It is up to the host or hosted to set the rules, but
we are suggesting that the hosted should, out or courtesy,
cover for the host at least the registration fee they paid
to participate to ECOWEEK. The exact arrangement(s) between
host and hosted are at the absolute discretion of the host
and hosted. This is not a service that ECOWEEK is offering
and it is not the responsibility of ECOWEEK the outcome of
the communication and arrangements between host and hosted.
ACCOMMODATION TIPS: For those of you
who are not so familiar with the city of Milano or you are
visiting for the first time, here are some accommodation tips*:
> We intend to invite local participants in Milano to host
visitors from outside the city. In the past, there was limited
response to this call, so do not count very much in being
hosted. But we will certainly do our best to help, and we
will let you know.
> You are encouraged to look for accommodation online.
