The Visitor Program will provide a venue for in-depth learning about the mission and ministry of the Lutheran World Federation. The Visitor Program will offer significant opportunities for dialog, discussion and learning facilitated by a wide diversity of leadership and guests who are present at the Assembly. These sessions will occur in the Presentation Theatre at the Winnipeg Convention Centre while the delegates and advisors are participating in the Village Groups.
These sessions are open to all full-time and day visitors as well as to accredited volunteers. Day Visitors do not register in advance, but register on site at the Assembly. A daily cost of $10 Cdn allows them to view the plenary sessions, join the morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, and thus meet with registered participants. Assembly documents and the meal program are not covered by the day visitor fee. There is a $4 Cdn charge for translation headsets, recommended for those viewing the plenary sessions.
