Event Dates
Thursday, September 27 to Sunday, September 30, 2018  

Deadline to Register
All registration information for you and your guest must be completed in its entirety by close of business on Friday, August 31, 2018.  Should you not respond by this date, we will assume you (or your guest) are not attending the Club of Excellence event.

Cancellation
Should you need to cancel your participation or your guest’s participation in the European Club of Excellence event, please send an email to Jennifer Escobar, Director of Marketing Communications at JenniferEscobar@kemet.com.

Passport
You and your guest will need a valid passport to attend this event. For more information on Croatia entry requirements, click here. If you need assistance with your passport, please contact your local HR representative. 
All attendees must be at least 21 years old. 

Transportation
KEMET will provide you and your guest round-trip air transportation to and from Dubrovnik International Airport (DBV) to the hotel on the travel dates of September 27 and 30 only. Please save any parking and in-transit meal receipts from your originating airport so you may expense them once you return.

Hotel Accommodations
KEMET will provide one hotel room for you and your guest from Thursday, September 27 - Sunday, September 30, 2018.  If you wish to secure a second hotel room at your own expense for your guest, please indicate this on your registration form. If the hotel has availability to accommodate a second hotel room, you will be required to pre-pay for this room at a rate of EUR 190 per night including VAT.

Meals and Activities
KEMET will provide you and your guest with breakfast, lunch, dinner, scheduled daily activities and events during the program. No additional charges (room service, bar tabs, meals outside of organized functions, additional outside events or activities such as spa treatments, etc.) will be covered by KEMET.

Extending Your Trip
If you would like to arrive before the event or stay later, we have negotiated a hotel rate of EUR 190 per night including VAT and daily breakfast, for up to three days before or after the event based on availability. Should you choose to extend your stay, you will need to make your own arrangements for ground transportation from or to the Dubrovnik International Airport. If you would like to extend your stay, please indicate this in the registration form.  Because the hotel will require prepayment of your additional room nights in advance, we will collect your credit card information on the event registration form.

Air Travel
KEMET has contracted with CWT to arrange air travel for you and your guest. Once you have completed the registration form, details regarding air travel will be emailed directly from CWT to you shortly. Any requests to deviate from the round trip air travel arrangements proposed by CWT must be approved by the Corporate Communications Department.

If you are unable to attend the Club of Excellence trip, you may postpone your participation until the 2020 Club of Excellence trip.

Personal Expenses
You will be asked to provide a credit card to cover any incidental charges upon check in on September 27. Any additional expenses incurred such as telephone calls, movie rentals, mini-bar charges, spa treatments, laundry and non-included activities will be at your own expense. Please be sure to settle your account with the hotel prior to check out on September 30. KEMET will not reimburse for child care expenses, room service, laundry or additional tours and activities beyond the official program.

Name Badges 
KEMET will provide name badges for you and your guest when you arrive at the CoE. Name badges must be worn at all group sponsored functions and activities.

No Minors Allowed
As a reminder, this trip has been specifically designed for adults. For the safety and well-being of minors (any person under the age of 21) and for insurance purposes, our regulations expressly prohibit minors from using KEMET-provided transportation and attending any group functions, including all meals, receptions, and social events.

No Pets Allowed
No pets are allowed on the KEMET Club of Excellence trip, except for official service animals. KEMET will not reimburse for pet-sitting expenses.
