500+ active participants from all over the world meet for inspiration,
networking and lots of fun in Berlin every year.
It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you we are cancelling UXcamp Europe 20. In light of the ongoing developments with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), anything else would be irresponsible. Here now is some information regarding the cancellation.
We have been watching the situation with coronavirus disease very closely both in Germany and internationally. As we are not medical experts, we follow the guidelines of the German Ministry of Health and others. In speaking with authorities and the Humboldt University we came to this conclusion.
The most important and responsible way to act now is to #flattenthecurve, for us that is to avoid large public gatherings, especially with an international group. The best time to implement this policy is now, before it is too late. Even though some of you may come from areas that have been spared so far, we are not willing to take a risk for the whole community.
Yes, it's a bummer, we know that. But there are more important things right now than our beloved conference. We'd better be safe than sorry here.
What about my ticket?
Your ticket automatically expires, you don't need to return it. We will have new tickets for the next UXcamp Europe as soon as we have announced a date.
What about my travel arrangements?
If you have already booked a hotel, flight, or train, you should cancel now and ask for a refund. If you still plan on coming to Berlin, expect a very quiet city, better come another time instead.
What happens next?
For now we wanted to inform you about the cancellation. But it wouldn’t be a good year without some form of UXcamp Europe, would it? Keep May 30th in your calendar, in the next newsletter we will have more information about our plans. Make sure that you have subscribed and follow us on social media. May we also recommend our Slack channel, where you can connect with other UXcampers and reach us directly.
Believe us, we do not take this lightly. But we think it's the right thing to do now. We would like to thank you for your continued support of UXcamp Europe and a special thank you to all the wonderful companies who wanted to sponsor the event.
We wish you and your loved ones all the best. Stay safe and healthy! Talk to you soon.
Henning, Holger, Katrin, Marie, Martin, Marvin, Volker.

We’re called UXcamp Europe for a reason: if you believe your passport makes you a better person this event is definitely not for you.
This week-end there is only one nation: The United States of UX. It’s true!
Expect to be asked for help with stuff that creeps up during the camp and can’t be covered by our volunteers.
Check the Rules of BarCamp if you’re not quite sure about the etiquette.
500+ people is a lot but we are still a BarCamp – not a corporate conference. The whole experience is therefore what you (yes, you!) make out of it.
If you have an idea please share, don’t just talk.
Catering & lunch are free of charge but also come at a cost: waiting. A lot.
A great opportunity to chat with your fellow campers from all over the world about their favourite food and tastiest UX recipies.
