Brussels, May, 10th, 2016. We are happy to announce that the registrations for the SIGNIS TV Seminar 2016 in Taipei are now open. The seminar will take place at Chinatrust Executive House Hotel on 9th-12th September 2016. This year, we will have the pleasure to be joined by the SIGNIS Journalism Desk which has decided to partner with us

The main local partner will be Kuangchi Program Service, and Father Jerry Martinson, SJ.

The theme of the seminar is "Imaging the Church in Media: Television and Journalism". Along with the panel and the keynote address, our sharing this year will take the form of “Case studies,” a slight variation on our traditional Show & Tell. Also, we will receive speakers from 3 local TV Stations: Kuangchi Program Service (Catholic), a Buddhist station, and a Christian (Protestant) one. You can see the draft programme here.

The registration to the SIGNIS TV/Journalism Seminar 2016 includes: accommodation in the Chinatrust Executive House Hotel (3 nights), meals (3 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners), and participation in meetings and conferences.

This year, we also offer an optional sightseeing excursion of the city of Taipei, after the close of the Seminar, on the afternoon of September 12th. This includes a 1/2 day trip to CKS Memorial Park, 101, KPS Studio, NPM and Fishermen Wharf at Tamsui. The price of this excursion includes one more night at the hotel and one more dinner.

Registration does NOT include: plane tickets, visa costs (see below), transport from and to the airport. You will, however, be welcomed at the airport upon arrival, and given an option of limousine or taxi. We will try to form groups so that transportation from airport to hotel will be only about US$50 per person.

The deadline for registration is June 15th, 2016.
