    "participants who are"

    The first sentence is abbreviating "participants [who want to take part//in order that they may take part]; The second is more specific in that "who are going to take part" implies you have some record of who will be coming.

    Which is correct will depend on whether you are planning the fees to quote in a brochure or whether you are amortizing costs across a known number of people.
