Australia’s official representation will include WBU Executive Member Bill Jolley; BCA CEO Emma Benison; and two delegates chosen from blindness service agencies. Observers are also welcome to attend the assembly and participate in the associated social and cultural program. Those who are blind or vision impaired may be accompanied by a guide.

The venue for this year’s Assembly will be the Holiday Inn, in the centre of Ulaanbaatar. The rate for a standard Room is US $80 per day and a registration fee of US $250 is payable to the local organisers, the Mongolian National Federation of the Blind.
