Discussion Points

Sponsorship for Accommodation:

  1.Seek full sponsorship from hotels: if unsuccessful then negotiate best offer. Suggested by Salma M. Osman (Omdurman U. of Science and Technology).
  2.Seek sponsorship/group-discount from airlines because some have agreements with specific hotels which offer discounts for those airlines. Suggested by Margunn Indreboe (UNDP).
  3. Check possibilities of accommodation at DAL and Kenana Guests houses  (follow-up to be assigned).
  4.Continue current efforts with University of Khartoum Guest Houses, Corenthia Hotel at Burj Alfatih (followed by Hadia Mahmoud from Steering Committee and Rofaida Babiker from Student Committee) and Coral Hotel (followed  by Dana Garelnabi from DAL Group).
