Thank you for your interest to buy tickets for Hackerhotel 2020.
Some things are different than last year so take some time to read the following announcement before ordering your tickets:
Exclusive use of Hotel Westcord de Veluwe
We need to sell 90 rooms for the Hackerhotel 2020 edition, to ensure exclusive use of the whole hotel.
When we reach the 90 rooms requirement the sales of the bungalows will start for the remaining number of tickets.
Sponsors have the option to reserve a bungalow in their sponsor package which is composed from items of our so called Sponsor Menu.
We have a counter counting down from 90 on the frontpage, which we will update every few days. When this counter hits ZERO 90 rooms have been sold and exclusive use of the hotel is assured!
Meals in 2 sittings: Early and Late
Also meals are served in 2 groups this year: Early and late.
There is a maximum of 175 persons in both groups. When a group is full, you are automatically placed in the other group.
You cannot change from group / meals. If you choose early all your meals will be the early option.
So the first 175 people that book tickets have an advantage.
The timetable for the Early and Late Sitting (Shifts) are:
Breakfast Early shift from 8:00 – 9:30
Breakfast Late shift from 10:00 – 11:30
Lunch Early shift 12:00 – 13:00
Lunch Late shift 13:15 – 14:15
Diner Early shift 17:30 – 18:45 uur
Diner Late shift 19:15 – 20:45 uur
Choose wisely as you cannot change from groups / meals.
Also after a group reaches 175 people it gets closed so no more options remain.
Buying early has advantages (not only 10 euro discount) !
This year when checking out and finishing your order you have to input your dietary requirements for every person in your party.
If you forget the system will give you an error stating that these fields are mandatory. Since there can be multiple people in a party (4 in this stage of the sales (1p,2P,3P and 4P rooms are on sale now) we have supplied 4 input fields for names, dietary requirements and sittings (Early / Late) that have to be filled in.
The first namefield is required (if you are one person buying a room for yourself), the rest of the name fields are optional.
- However the dietary options are mandatory to fill in, if you are alone or just 2p, then click at person 3 and 4 both options to (There is no person 3/4 in this booking).
These options help us greatly simplify the communication with the hotel so we count on your cooperation.
Optional Friday Buffet
Because a lot of people have requested proper food instead of snacks on the Friday evening, the hotel has offered us a dinner in the same style as the usual dinner on Saturday for a price of 25,00 EUR. This dinner needs (preferably) to be ordered in advance through our website and can be found in our shop. During this buffet the restaurant (or a seperate section not sure yet) will be only accesible for people that have ordered this dinner. Ofcourse you can also order fries and other snacks at the bar, during this time, or have a dinner outside or before you come to the venue. You can choose this option from the shop. Buying it later (until one week before the event) is also possible.
Don’t bring your own drinks!
Please refrain from bringing your own drinks to use in the general areas (hacking area’s , bars, halls etc).
You can organize private tasting sessions (Whiskey or Mate tastings) just like last year, but they have to take place in one of the conference rooms and certainly not at the bar (!!!) and have to be of a limited time (so organising a weekend long mate taste session in the general hackerspace area is not allowed 😉
We hope you will cooperate as this causes a lot of discussion for the organisation.
Coming Early, leaving late ?
For people from abroad, or people that just like to get in early or want to help we have an option to arrive on the thursdayafternoon.
You’ll pay regular room rate minus 20% (Hackerhotel discount) including a breakfast on fridaymorning. The prices for this are:
1P room 80 euro
2P room 95 euro (47.50 p.p.)
3P room 110 euro (36.67 p.p.)
If you want to stay after the event (so Sunday 16th till mondaymorning 17th) that’s also possible:
1p or 2P room 65,00 euro (will inform what 3 and 4P rooms cost).
You can choose both these upgrades for your room type from the shop!
It’s more expensive than last year!
Yup. Most tickets are priced 10 euros higher than the 2019 event.
Every ticket now also has 2 lunches, all rooms have LATE CHECKOUT meaning you only have to leave your room, Sunday the 16th of February 2020 before 19.00hrs.
So you can have a very lazy sunday. Also some tourist tax has now been included. In total a 45 euro package, for just 10 euros more. We hope you appreciate the efforts we put in to keep prices affordable?
Buying a ticket / Refund Policy
When buying a ticket you are entering a binding agreement with Stichting Connected Freedom, the organizer of Hackerhotel.
We have a new refund policy since people cancelling at the last moment or not showing up cost us some money, which we rather use for the event.
So this years refund policy is as stated below:
Cancelling 1 month in advance is a full refund
Cancelling within 2 weeks in advance is a 50% refund
Cancelling within the last week in advance is NO REFUND.
If you think this is steep or unreasonable we advice you to buy a Cancellation Insurance Policy (in Dutch Annuleringsverzekering). Ofcourse if you have urgent family issues (death/accidents/etc) Hackerhotel can refund but this will be judged on a per case basis and the foundations board will have final and deciding say.
Finally , Let me buy my ticket please!
Now when you agree with all above, then it’s time to buy your ticket here:
