Previous Mediation Seminars

The Cyprus Consumer Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution is the first approved Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution which provides dispute resolution services in all sectors of the economy (except for telecoms). We are an approved and licensed Alternative Dispute Resolution Entity notified to the European Commission and therefore our goal is for our seminars to be of a high standard.

Mediation Seminars and their Cost

The pricing of the mediation seminars of the Cyprus Consumer Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution is among the most competitive in the market since it ranges between €680 and €870 Euros plus VAT depending on the date of registration of the interested parties. Compared to other mediation seminars, our pricing is considered law and due to the fact that they are co-financed by the European Union we manage to maintain the quality at very high levels.

The cost of €680 plus VAT is payable for early registrations (early bird) whilst the cost of €870 Euro plus VAT is payable in case of delayed registration.

The reason that the cost differs in case of early registration in the mediation seminars is so that the Center can act proactively and make arrangements with third party providers (for example the trainers and the hotel etc.)
