“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Mt 6:10)

For the first time, we chose hotel/convention center that offers advantages–saving moving time for meetings, GBS in hotel rooms, comfortable spaces and environment for lodging/fellowship/meetings. We expect also to reduce behind-the-scene UBF workers to half or less. With these advantages, we have the following factors that affect 2018 ISBC budget:

  • We originally planned to keep conference fees on a par with 2013 ISBC fees within inflation rate by letting North American attendees purchase meals at over 25 restaurants in the Galt House hotel and KICC neighborhood. Most big conferences that are held in Louisville, KY, take this meal option. Per requests of many UBF staff and members, however, we decided to have catered meals at the KICC for both international delegates and North American members. We offer participants from USA/Canada 3 meal options (all 9 catered meals, 6 catered meals, and no catered meal). Catered meals cost $70-$100 more than the meals at nearby restaurants for 9 meals. This will be the main cause of increase in conference fees for those who take catered meal options.
  • We considered the changes in Canadian dollar-US dollar exchange for the past years and lowed overhead fee for participants from Canada.

* Considering these factors, overall estimated conference fees are as follows:
