Dear friends of UX Camp Europe,

Only 13 weeks to go until the camp!

As every year, the main event is on Saturday and Sunday (03.06 – 04.06.2017) with a warm-up on Friday evening (02.06).

We guess you’re all as excited as we are, so without further ado let’s share some news and answer some of your burning questions.

HOW DO I GET A TICKET?

Tickets will be released sometime in late March or early April (once all volunteer spots are filled). We will announce the ticket release date via our main channels:

• This newsletter if you have subscribed to our mailing list
• Our website: http://www.uxcampeurope.org/
• Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/uxcampeurope/
• Twitter: @uxcampeurope

You’re probably aware that in the last years all tickets were gone in under 2 minutes so if you want a guaranteed ticket you might also like to consider sponsorship or volunteering.

CALL FOR SPONSORS

UX Camp Europe wouldn’t be possible (and free of charge for our participants) without our lovely sponsors. So if you want to raise your profile in the UX community or let the world know that you’re hiring: This is the place.

We have some truly fantastic sponsors already confirmed for this year:
while Adobe and SapientRazorfish are supporting us as Platinum sponsors, our loyal friends Das Büro am Draht, Kühlhaus and UID are going for Gold again. Wow!

Sponsorship slots are already going really fast but we still have some opportunities available for UX Camp Europe 2017. Please get in touch via sponsoring(at)uxcampeurope.org and we will send you all the information.

(Sponsors get a guaranteed amount of tickets depending on their sponsorship level.)

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

By volunteering to do a 1 or 2 hour shift you are making an important contribution to a successful UX Camp and are also guaranteed a ticket.
A shift may include time at the cloakroom, registration desk or wherever your help is needed together with another international volunteer.

As with sponsoring, volunteer places are highly in demand (50% are already gone) and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Please note: We will only release regular participant tickets once all the volunteer spots are allocated. So if you are willing and committed to be a friendly helper on the day get in touch via volunteers(at)uxcampeurope.org.

(And yes, we do keep a black list of people who let us and the camp down. So only register as volunteer if you can really make it!)

ACCOMMODATION ALERT!

Due to the unlucky timing of a few large events in Berlin on the same weekend, accommodation will be scarce. Although we aren’t able to confirm your ticket right now, we suggest you try and find accommodation soon with a relaxed cancellation policy. We know this sucks, but it might be better to be safe than sorry.

CALLING ALL BERLINERS

Due to the above mentioned accommodation situation, we believe it would a true barcamp experience if local people could host visiting participants for the camp weekend. Please send us an email to team(at)uxcampeurope.org stating the following information:

• Your name
• Area
• How many people you could host

Once we have a list of available hosts, we will share these details with confirmed participants looking for accommodation. You can then make your own arrangements amongst yourselves for a true community experience.

THAT’S ALL FOLKS
Take care and we hope to see you soon!
