Co-op

Can I use Co-op funds to attend the event?
Yes. If you pre-register (either for just the event pass or the event pass plus hotel accommodation) partners and distributors can get a US$300, Co-op allowance for this event for each employee and end user that you wish to sponsor. Silver and Bronze partners and their end user guests can be sponsored by the regional MDF fund. To get this US$300, please enter the co-op sponsoring partner's name and email address on the "Summary and Payments" page during online registration.

The US$300 fee will be directly discounted at the time you or your customer registers. No additional reimbursements apply, so no claims are required in 2013. You can not use co-op if you register on-site the day of the event. There is no limit to the number of end user guests that a Check Point partner or distributor can sponsor through Co-op.
Can I use Co-op to cover Conference expenses beyond the approved allowance?
No.
Do I need to open a Co-op project for the approved allowance?
No. Please enter the co-op sponsoring partner's name and email address on the "Summary and Payments" page during online registration so that you get the appropriate allowance.
Do I need to file a claim after the event?
