Registration fee

The registration fee depends on the type of registration. It must be paid in advance using one of the approved methods. Once your payment has completed, you will receive a PDF copy of your receipt using email, and it will also be available for download on the registration page. Please verify that your payment has been received within one week of paying it (by checking the status on the registration form), and contact us if it hasn't.

Once your registration and payment have been confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email. The email is sent from contact@pgconf.eu so make sure to add it to your contacts list to avoid it reaching your spam folder.

You can pay using Credit Card (Mastercard, Visa or American Express), PayPal, Trustly or IBAN bank transfer. If you have a company department making the payments, please see the section on paying somebody else's invoice. If you plan to register many attendees to be paid for by the same person, we also offer bulk payment.

Early Bird

Early bird registration is limited to 75 tickets, and will be available until September 10th (or until the tickets run out). To register with the early bird special price, choose a Normal registration in the ticket selection dropdown, and use the offercode EARLYBIRD during checkout.

VAT

PostgreSQL Europe is since 2016 VAT registered in France. As the event is held in Lisbon, all registrations will include VAT. For further information about VAT on our invoices, please see the VAT FAQ.

Training

On Tuesday, the day before the conference, we will also be providing half-day and full-day training sessions. These are in-depth sessions on a wide variety of PostgreSQL topics, and cost an extra training add-on on top of registration. The training add-on registration will be available once the training schedule is announced, see the training page for details.

Participants in the training sessions are entitled to a discounted rate for the rest of the conference, regardless of registration date. Training must be pre-paid using one of the standard methods - paying at the door is not allowed for training registrations.

Training sessions can also be purchased separately from conference access, in which case only the cost of the training applies, and no additional fees. This gives no access to the general conference or any of the related events.

Cancellation

If you need to cancel your registration after you have paid, please contact us via email for manual handling.

  • If you cancel at least 4 weeks before the conference, we will refund you the full cost of the registration, minus any transaction fees.
  • If you cancel at least 2 weeks before the conference, we will refund you 50% of the cost of the registration, minus any transaction fees.
  • If you cancel less than 2 weeks before the conference, we will refund you 25% of the cost of the registration, minus any transaction fees.

Registering for somebody else

If you want to make a registration for somebody else (one or more people, such as registering a group of people from the same company), you can use the "register for somebody else" functionality. You will find the link in the registration area, once you logged in with your personal account. Fill out the individual registration forms for each of the persons you want to register, and then generate a shared invoice for all of them. Note that this shared invoice must be paid under the same terms as any other invoice, using the same payment methods and deadlines.

If the attendee being registered already has a community account in the system, the registration will be automatically attached to that account. The account is matched by comparing the email address. If they do not have an account, they will receive an email with instructions for how to create one and attach the registration, should they wish (account creation is not mandatory, but it is recommended in order to be able to access all features).

Paying somebody else's invoice

If you need to make a registration where somebody else (such as a company finance department) makes the payment, this is of course also possible. In this scenario, make sure that you follow this process:

  1. The person attending the conference makes and completes the registration form logged in using their personal account.
  2. Once the registration details are filled out, proceed to generate the invoice for the registration.
  3. Once the invoice is generated, there will be a field at the bottom of the invoice specification labeled External link. This link should be sent to the person paying the invoice.
  4. The person paying the invoice can then access the invoice using this link without logging in, and proceed to make the payment using credit card, PayPal or Trustly.

Bulk payment

We also have a bulk payment system available for those who wish to register multiple attendees and pay on a single invoice. This system is intended for companies who wish to send many employees or vendors/providers who wish to pay for their customers to go to the conference. As it includes more steps, it is recommended that the regular registration process is used when possible.

To use the bulk payment system, please follow the following process:

  1. Each individual attendee uses the regular registration form to register, including filling out all details and possible additional options such as training. This is necessary since the connected account is used in all communication with the attendee, including participating in events and feedback. For this reason, it is important that each attendee register themselves, so they get access to all the features during the conference. The attendee should not proceed to payment of the registration.
  2. The person in charge of payment (who does not need to be one of the attendees, but can be) proceeds to the bulk payment page, and fills in the invoicing details.
  3. The person in charge of payment fills in all the email addresses for the attendees to pay for on this page, validates that the total cost is correct, and generates an invoice. Generating the invoice locks all registrations against modifications, but just as with regular registrations they are not confirmed until the invoice is paid.
  4. The person in charge of payment pays the invoice using credit card, PayPal or Trustly. Note that the invoice is due on receipt just like all other registrations, and must be paid using the same methods immediately. If you cannot pay using any of these methods, please contact us ahead of time to work out the details.
  5. When the invoice is paid in the system, all attached registrations will automatically be confirmed, and the attendees will receive a confirmation email. Only the person in charge of payment will receive a PDF copy of the receipt for the transaction.

If you have any questions on the bulk payment procedure or registration in general, don't hesitate to contact us.
