Dear DX Friend,

We would like to invite you to the EDXC Conference 2014 to be held in the Southern France on 19-22 September 2014.

The latter part of the conference (21-22 September) will take place in the city of Nice.

It is understandable that people are coming from and going to different places and different times. That is why we will try to be very flexible with the conference packages. The price for the basic package will be around 175 € (single) / 120 € (double) including:
