EuroPython 2019: Attendee briefing

EuroPython 2019 will start on Monday. Again we will have more than a thousand attendees signed up and we’re looking forward to an exciting conference packed with more than 130 sessions from Monday - Sunday, July 8 - 14.


Here’s some useful information to get you started:

1. Picking up your badge using your ticket ID

As in past year, we are again using the ticket ID for badge pickup. You can find your ticket ID in your account listed under:

Please have this ID at hand when picking up your badge.

We are planning to open doors at 08:30 on Monday.

Our regular registration desk hours are : 09:00 - 17:00 from Tuesday - Friday.

2. Conference App

We have created a dedicated mobile app to support your conference experience.

The mobile app gives you access to the conference schedule (even offline), helps you in planning your conference experience and provides a rich social engagement platform for all attendees.

You can create a profile within the app (or link this to your existing social accounts), share messages and photos, and easily reach out to other fellow attendees.

Please note: You need to open a new account inside the app, it’s not connected to your EuroPython account. If you have had an account in previous year, the app should recognize this and you don’t have to set it up again.

Download the Attendify app here:
search for “EuroPython 2019” and enter the
code “europython2019” to access the app

4. Social Event

We are organizing a EuroPython Social Event at the FHNW Muttenz:

on Thursday, 19:00 - 22:30

We serve finger food and cold drinks. We’ll also have Python crafted
live music and a DJ for more conventional music.

You need an extra ticket for this event, it’s not included in the
conference ticket.

The program and tickets can be found here:

Please note that we cannot accept cash payments, so please order your tickets online.

5. Self-Organisation and Public Channels

We have a Telegram group attendees can chat with each other, it’s
open for everyone to join:

We have set up a wiki page for attendees to self-organize and give
other attendees helpful tips:

Help on how to use it:

More info on our social channels.

6. Catering on Workshop and Training Days (Monday / Tuesday)

Please note that catering on the Monday and Tuesday is only included for attendees who have a training or combined ticket.

If you don’t have such a ticket, you can still attend the free sponsored trainings, the Beginners’ Day and the many PewPew workshops (remember, each attendee will get a PewPew device for free) on Monday and Tuesday, but you will either have to pay in cash / with card at the caterer or arrange food/drinks from the grocery store at the ground floor. For coffee breaks you can go to the ground floor, to the 12th floor of the FHNW building, or outside at the beach bar (nice weather only) and buy drinks.

7. Drinking water

At the FHNW, you can bring your own water, if you like, and fill up your bottle at the taps. Drinks are only available during the coffee breaks and lunch. 

At the CCB, we will have water dispensers throughout the day, so you can bring your bottle and fill it up as needed.

PS: This blog post will also be sent out via email to all registered attendees.
