The regional finalists will be invited to FIATA’s World Conference in Taipei (8- 13 September 2015) in order to present their dissertations to the judging panel and for the eventual announcement of the International Award winner at the Opening Ceremony. The prize to be awarded to the winner principally consists of practical and academic training, including a week based at one of TT Club’s regional centres in London, Hong Kong or New Jersey plus a week in TT Club’s Head Office in London.
