Social events for accompanying persons


One month before the conference, we didn’t have enough accompanying persons to keep these programs booked. On June, 25th we decided to cancel these events. For those who have already signed up we are refunding the money.

FOSS4G-Europe welcomes attendees accompanying persons.

Please use our Social Event Registration Form to register your accompanying persons.

For each day of the conference, we offer guided tours prepared for the accompanying persons. Tickets are required for these tours and for the gala dinner. For other events (welcome reception, evening events at the FOSS4G Hostel, coffee breaks, etc) no additional tickets for companions are required.

LOC member Cristina (OpenStreetMap mapper and geographer) is our Companion’s Social Program Coordinator. She will be your guide in these tours. Feel free to email her to know more details about each tour.
