We can increase the number of rooms at IGU in a daily cost of US$ 400 per day per room. They have 5 room if we need and the event on FLN proposed very similar conditions.

With the Summit in Brazil, the average travel costs for both North American and European attendees is about the same ($1,400 and $1,550 respectively). With the Summit in Portugal, the average travel costs for North American attendees is $1,950 while the average travel costs for European attendees will be only $1,165.
