  • Conference accounts

These are valid for the duration of the conference. Application for these accounts must be made by the organizer of the conference by sending an e-mail to at least two weeks before the start of the event.

You will then receive a Word file and an Excel file from us by e-mail from which you can create the documents for your guests using the mail merge function.

We need the following information from you:

  The login is case-sensitive!
  The accounts are numbered consecutively and the abbreviation serves
  to identify your event. It should be meaningful, but not
  too long (e.g. gast0000@conference).

- Desired version of the Word file (German and/or English).

Please check beforehand whether reception of the WiFi network operated by HRZ is possible at the intended conference locations with the SSID "gast-bonnet".
