FAQ: Ekoparty 2020 amidst COVID-19

We answer some frequent questions related to purchased tickets for Ekoparty and our next edition.

What did Ekoparty decide to do with the events planned for 2020?

In this post Leo Pigñer describes the decisions around Ekoparty Buenos Aires, Ekoparty Federal, Ekoparty University Talks and other projects.

In summary:

- Ekoparty 2020 will be held online from September 24 to 26, with talks, workshops and hacktivities as usual⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

- Ekoparty Federal in Cordoba will be rescheduled for next year

- Early bird tickets purchased for any of the conferences BEFORE April 27 ARE VALID for Ekoparty online, AND also include full access to Ekoparty 2021

I purchased a ticket for Ekoparty Buenos Aires/Cordoba, what's gonna happen?

Your ticket is valid for the new online format of ekoparty 2020, which will be our main event. It will consist of 3 days of talks, workshops, hacktivities and more, with high-level content and speakers. It will be held from September 24 to 26. You don't need to do anything, you're already in! We'll send the details soon by email.

Plus, with this year's ticket (if you purchased before April 27th), you have FREE ACCESS to Ekoparty 2021 in Buenos Aires or Cordoba (the same location as you had purchased), as by then, we'll resume the physical event.

Can I ask for a refund?

Yes, you can ask for a refund at Eventbrite, where you purchased your ticket (here's how to do it). However, we'd love you to attend ekoparty online. If you have any questions about refunds, email us at reembolsos@ekoparty.org.

I haven't purchased my ticket yet, where can I buy it?

You can purchase your ticket at this Eventbrite link.

Is there a student discount?

Yes. In order to get the discount, you must send your student certificate to estudiantes@ekoparty.org. Once we verify it, we will send you a link to purchase your ticket with a discount.

What's included with the conference ticket?

The ticket includes full access to the conference and its schedule: talks, workshops, hacktivities, challenges, wardriving, CFP, ekodating, sponsors lounge, Get Together, among others.

The schedule for Ekoparty 2020 has not been published yet.

Are trainings purchased separately?

Yes, trainings are purchased separately because they are specific and intensive courses, dictated by infosec professionals from all around the world. Sometimes, these are only available at higher prices outside of Latin America, and their authors decide to bring them to the region exclusively in the context of Ekoparty.

Trainings are from 2 to 4 days long, with a full-time schedule, and you will get a certificate once you finish. They are held in the days prior to the conference.

The trainings offering for 2020 is available at this link.
