What block booking options are available for companies?

Our offer for a block booking for companies is as follows:

  • Block booking for face-to-face attendance: 8400 Euro, i.e. you break-even with 30 face-to-face participants. If you chose this option an arbitrary number of virtual attendees is included as well.
  • Block booking for virtual attendance: 2800 Euro, i.e. you reach break-even with this option if at least 40 colleagues from your company register for virtual attendance to the workshop.
  • The conference organizers reserve the right to cap the number of registered face-to-face attendees for a company with block booking, in order to keep catering costs under control. This never happened so far though.

Please reach out to Egbert Biesheuvel if your company is interested in one of these options.

Which companies have block bookings for face-to-face participation?
