  2. a variable rate, depending on the cultural or sporting event chosen

The basic price includes:

  • Your participation in the opening ceremony,
  • Your participation in the closing ceremony,
  • Your official participation medal,
  • Your free access to the accreditation center in the village of the Gay Games, and most of the sports venues,
  • Your public transport pass (bus, metro, RER) throughout the Ile-de-France (5 zones) for non-Parisians,
  • The full program

Note bene: 145 € ~154 US$ ~ 127 £ as of 13 January

Late Fees 1 May 2018 30 June 2018 3000 registrations 205 €

For example, basic fees on 31 March are 145 €, but as soon as registrations at this rate are over 2.000, basic fees raise to the next fees. If the number of registrations doesn’t reach the maximum quantity at the End date, fees can nevertheless raise.

For example, if you live in the USA and register today in soccer, you pay 145 € of basic fees plus 40 € of soccer fees for a total of 185 €. If you register only in May 2018 if there are an available slot, you would pay 205 € + 40 € = 245 €.

The deadline for registrations is scheduled for 30 June 2018.

 

NOTE:  Paris 2018 reserves the right to modify registration rates at any time.

 

How rates are calculated?

Participation in the organization costs by participants was calculated to represent less than a quarter of the overall budget of the event, including large opening and closing ceremonies, the 36 sports, 14 cultural activities, evenings in the village and all the festivities.

Your participation fee is essential for the success of this unique event. It is also a militant act to support our values.

Why register as soon as possible?

  1. First registered, first served: all activities have a limited number of capacity. To be sure to participate in your activity, you should register as early as possible
  2. Planning: Paris 2018 will have more time to plan all events according to your wishes and you will have more time to prepare your travel and accommodation
  3. Economic: You will take advantage of better prices for registrations but also for your travel and accommodation thanks to our special deal with our official travel agency KTS France and misterb&b and show your support to Paris 2018 – Gay Games 10.

How to finance your participation

To finance for your individual participation or for your team you can:

  1. Search for private partners,
  2. Launch campaigns of crowdfunding
  3. Conduct further operations to raise funds

What can you sell to private partners?

Paris 2018 will host the Gay Games and authorizes the presence of logos of brands or corporate brands on the equipment of participants, also possible during the opening ceremony. Nevertheless, it is outlawed to use the Paris 2018 logo – Gay Games 10 in whole or part. Only official partners of PARIS 2018 – GAY GAMES 10 will have this right. Furthermore, any advertising or brand of liquor, cigarettes and pornography is prohibited.

How to launch campaigns of crowdfunding?

There are many websites for crowdfunding or online wallet that can solicit a people network to finance all or a part of travel and participation to Gay Games 10. To raise a budget of € 2,000, on average it takes to convince 200 people, including family,  entourage,  colleagues, etc.  Considering to offer your donors some counterparties like goodies, testimonials, quotes, autographed photos etc. can be a good reward for them for helping you.

How can you raise more money?

What if you are hosting a dance party or a gala dinner with a participation fee whose profits would be used to register your team to the Gay Games? And if you create a calendar, a game, a T-shirt or another object or newspaper that you could sell? You may find lots of ideas to collect a portion of registration fees, if you stand for all, then maybe you will be able to pay for the whole registration.
