Please note that the conference and the workshops take place in two different venues in Copenhagen.
The workshops on Friday May 24 take place at Mogens Dahl Koncertsal, which is a small beautiful concert hall. It used to be a barn, but today it’s a multifunctional house with classical concerts and events. The address is Snorresgade 22.
Getting to the venues
There is excellent public transportation all over Copenhagen. Google maps is great for planning your trip by train, metro or bus to either venue.
Public transportation to Marketenderiet (Thursday May 23):
Trains or S-trains to Valby Station or Ny Ellebjerg Station. Bus line 8A stops 2 minutes from Marketenderiet. Other bus lines close to the venue: 4A, 14, 132 and 133.
Public transportation to Mogens Dahl Koncertsal (Friday May 24):
Bus line 250S (stop at Kigkurren) or the Metro line M1, stop at Islands Brygge (approximately 8 minutes walk) away.
Of course, the fastest, easiest and most Danish way to get there would be to rent a bike. There are numerous bike shops that provide rental bikes and a city bike program as well.
Both venues have limited street parking. Payment for parking is handled via EasyPark, ParkPark, Parkman app or a normal Parking meter. Remember to note what parking area you are in.
Please come early
Both days will start on time as announced in the program. If all participants arrive to register 5 minutes before the starting time, we’re in trouble 🙂 So please come early, enjoy a leisurely morning cup of tea/coffee and a croissant and maybe meet some of the other participants.
On Friday May 24 there are 8 half-day workshops, 4 to choose between in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. Sign up for your prefered workshops here, and please do it as soon as possible to make sure your prefered choice is available. Workshop Sign-up
If you originally bought a ticket for the conference only but have changed your mind, it’s not too late – you can buy a workshop ticket here.
Lunch is included on both days. There will be a vegetarian option. If you have other dietary restrictions/allergies let us know by May 10th at the latest.
There will also be tea/coffee/water and fruit available throughout both days.
The event has the same dress code as they do at Google: You must wear clothes 🙂 Wear what makes you happy and comfortable.
Tickets and what to bring
You don’t need to bring a printed ticket – we have your name on the guest list and look forward to checking you in.
If you like to take notes during the day, it would be a good idea to bring your notebook and a pen. You’ll get all presentations and materials from the conference no later than a week after.
Cancellation up to 2 months before the conference: 100% refund
Cancellation up to 1 month before the conference: 50% refund
Cancellations received after that date are non refundable, but the ticket can be transferred to another person.
