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 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, 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
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.
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. Training must be pre-paid
using one of the standard methods - paying at the door is not allowed for training
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 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
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 or Trustly.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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
If you cannot pay using any of these methods, please
contact us ahead of time to work
out the details.
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.
