DjangoCon Europe 2020 postponed to September

Posted by Miguel Magalhaes, DjangoCon Europe 2020 organizers, Markus Holtermann on March 20, 2020

It is with a sincere heart that we have decided to postpone DjangoCon Europe 2020 to September 16-20.

As you might be aware, conferences are being cancelled worldwide. We still have hope, and before throwing the towel, we have decided to postpone. We took particular care to choose safe dates, far enough from the current outbreak peek estimates, but also far from the next fall/winter. Some experts state this is here to stay, and if they are correct, we should have troubles next fall/winter, let's just hope to a smaller degree.

Many of you have already bought tickets, and to those, we kindly ask to hope with us.

Ticket refunds will happen in any of the following scenarios:

Please do not rush requesting ticket refunds. We will process them as we can. Please note that a ticket refunded and latter on bought again has double the fees for us. So delay your decision for as long as you can. If everything goes well, we will have a conference, and we count on you to be there! When booking your trip to Porto for September, please make sure to book with the possibility to cancel.

For those of you who are planning or have already booked your flights with TAP, our official carrier, here is some crucial information. In short, they have plans for flight reschedules free of charge. You can reschedule your tickets to the new dates.

During the conference, we will follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, as well as the Portuguese Direcção Geral da Saude (DGS) guidelines.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this uncertain time. We appreciate your support of this difficult decision and look forward to seeing you soon in September.

Hopping for the best,

The DjangoCon Europe 2020 Organisers
