I don't live in Berlin, and I'd like to book accommodation; where can I stay?
There are lots of hotels within walking distance from our venue. A few good-value options are: Holiday Inn Berlin City East Side and Michelberger Hotel.
I attended WTSFest before in London, will this feel the same?
The honest answer is it probably won't. As this is our first-ever event in Germany, we're keeping it much smaller than the UK event. But, of course, the sense of community is always the same.
Can I pay directly by invoice?
We won’t be able to hold tickets, so please pay directly via tito, our ticketing platform.
Can I sponsor the event?
Please do get in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to sponsor the event.
What does the sponsorship fee go to?
We use our sponsorship fee to pay for our venue, suppliers, photographer, videographer, and logistics fees, and most importantly, we pay our speakers a speaker fee (as all conferences should!)
