The conference is at this point completely sold out and we have
activated waitlist management to ensure a fair allocation of seats
made available from cancellations (if any). If you are interested
in attending, we urge you to sign up for the waitlist as soon as
possible. Seats are offered to those registered on the waitlist on
a first come first serve basis.
Once a seat is offered off the waitlist, it's valid for a limited time
only. The offer must be claimed and paid for before the expiration time
of the offer (usually 24 hours), so if you have signed up on the waitlist
make sure to check your email regularly! Waitlist offers cannot be paid
for via IBAN bank transfer.

The registration fee depends on the type of registration. It must be paid
in advance using one of the approved methods. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 or Trustly. 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, please see the
section on Registering for somebody else.
Invoices and receipts
When you have filled our your details in the registration form, an invoice will
be automatically generated for you. An invoice is generated regardless
of which payment method you choose. Once an invoice has been generated, it can
no longer be changed, so make sure you validate that it has any required company
information on it. If it is incorrect, you can cancel the invoice, change the
details and generate a new one. Note that once an invoice has been paid,
it can no longer be canceled or changed in any way.
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. This normally only takes a few minutes after your payment has completed,
but it is not sent until the process is complete so in particular with some
slow payment methods such as bank transfer, there may be a significant delay.
When registering for the conference, we will ask for personal information
such as name and address, but also dietary requirements and t-shirt size.
For information on how this data is stored and processed, see the
Paying with bank transfer
We generally recommend using one of the online payment methods available
(Credit Card, Trustly or PayPal) as these payments complete immediately and have
a fully automated workflow that makes it much harder for mistakes to happen. For
finalizing offers from th waitlist, IBAN payments are not accepted due to the
ticket having to be paid for before the offer expiration. The below special things
to note about IBAN payments is kept as a reference for anyone buying a normal
ticket using an IBAN payment.
- Our payment management is outsourced to our payment provider, so we cannot
actually see the state of your payment until it's completed.
- If any data in the transfer is incorrectly entered, the transfer will
automatically returned to the sending account with no extra information,
and we are never notified of it.
- In particular, do not use the invoice number as the payment
reference. The payment reference is a long random-looking string provided by
our payment provider.
- As this processing is handled entirely by our payment provider, the payment
reference information and bank account details can not be printed
on the invoice, and we do not have the ability to find them out for you. The
information is provided during the payment flow, and must be saved at that time.
- Payment must be made in exact amount of Euros. If you are making the payment
from outside the Euro zone, make sure that your bank submits the exact Euro
amount, with no rounding.
- Payment must be completed by the deadline listed on the invoice.
This means it must have reached our payment provider and have been
processed by them. Do not set payment date to be the date
on the invoice - instead make sure the invoice is paid immediately, to allow
for the many delays in the banking system.
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
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. If training is added to
an existing registration, the price of the training session itself is charged,
and no price difference on the general ticket is refunded. Training must be pre-paid
using one of the standard methods.
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.
If you need to cancel your registration after you have paid, please
contact us via email for manual handling.
If you cancel on or before 2018-09-24 (4 weeks before the conference), we will refund
you the full cost of the registration, minus a fee of €10 covering
transaction fees and administration.
If you cancel on or before 2018-10-08 (2 weeks before the conference), we will refund
you 50% of the cost of the registration, minus a fee of €10 covering
transaction fees and administration.
If you cancel on or before 2018-10-15 (1 week before the conference) we will refund
you 25% of the cost of the registration, minus a fee of €10 covering
transaction fees and administration.
If you cancel on or after 2018-10-16 (less than 1 week before the conference),
we will unfortunately not be able to provide a refund.
Registration is personal, and there is no facility for transferring it. We do however allow a
registration to be transferred to another individual within the same organisation when there is
a legitimate reason which prevents participation. The transfer carries an administrative charge
of €20. Contact us for assistance with transferring an existing,
and paid for, registration.
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
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:
The person attending the conference makes and completes the registration form logged
in using their personal account.
Once the registration details are filled out, proceed to generate the invoice for the
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.
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, Trustly or
IBAN bank transfer.
Buying vouchers for others
Finally, you can also buy a set of vouchers to be given to others. In this case you buy
a fixed number of tickets, and receive codes that can be used for free registration
using them. Vouchers can only be used for main conference access (no training, though
training can be independently added to the ticket later), and no refund is provided
for unused vouchers. Vouchers are subject to availability, and offer no protection from
If you are interested in purchasing vouchers, please
contact us for instructions on how to proceed.
