In a message on the 35th WDC website the organizers said that in response "to requests received from many delegates wishing to attend the Congress, who have not been able to register for various reasons, the Congress Organising Committee has decided to extend the date for general registration fees of $ 750 (accompanying person $ 500) till September 30th. The late fee of an additional $100 will be applicable from October 1st to October 7th, and registration will now close on October 7th, 6 p.m. India Standard Time)"
IDMA Secretary General Ronnie VanderLinden thanked the organizing hosts, the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and the Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB), for taking this considerate step. "As the diamond business communities in Belgium, Israel and elsewhere came back from their summer leave only toward the end of August, many delegates had not yet been able to register and make their travel arrangements. At the same time, we are urging ALL delegates and participants to the 35th World Diamond Congress to register and book their rooms as soon as possible," VanderLinden stated.
