Final information

With just a few days before the conference begins we’ll just want to let you know about these final things to keep in mind.

First of all the registration for tutorial tickets starts at 08:00 and for regular tickets at 12:00. Respectively the tutorials themselves start at 09:00 and the opening of the regular conference at 13:20. So make sure to register in time to avoid long waiting lines.

Students who purchased a student ticket MUST bring their student ID card.

If you don’t know where your tutorial will take place, ask the volunteers at the registration desk, they will happily help you with directions. If you don’t remember which tutorial you wanted to attend, look on your badge, it should tell you.


The official address for the venue is “Ter Elst, Kattenbroek 1, 2650 Edegem“. You can find more information on their website.

There is enough parking space at the venue, but if you can, try to car pool with your colleagues. It also makes it easier to get home safe after the socials.

Diversity group photo

The diversity picture is a tradition by now! Every year we take at least one picture to share with the world. As just one of many ways to make sure everyone knows that our conference is open for anyone who wants to join.

This year we expect more women than ever to attend the conference, both as speaker and attendees.

Pics from previous years


On Friday evening we’ll gather all women in the Expo hall for the group photo during the social after we’ve had some food. Let’s say around 20:30. It just takes a few minutes.

Follow us on Twitter, to make sure to know when it will happen and where to be.

Community-build mobile app for conference

We love our community and we’re always astonished how they build additional tools for the conference.

Just the other day, one of our attendees decided to build a mobile app for our conference. Big kudos to Paul Edenburg for working out this app. πŸ‘

Introducing student tickets


For many years we’ve had the request to allow students to join the conference at a reduced price. For this year we might have great news for these young PHP apprentices; they’re in the ticket shop right now! We want to make a kind gesture to the younger generation by giving them a huge discount and be part of the community.

Take note that you’ll need to show your student card at the registration desk of the conference as these tickets are exclusively for students.

Ticket sales are well underway

Ticket sales for PHPBenelux Conference 2020 are well underway, if you don’t want to miss out on your favorite tutorial or conference tickets we strongly advise to get your tickets in time as the amount is limited.

The conference consists of a 2-day programme with tutorials in the morning on the first day and 1 and a half day of talks following directly after that. Over the past years we’ve build up a reputation to be an affordable high-quality PHP conference. But we also like to go beyond that with sponsors joining the yearly theme (which is Country this year) and social activities to keep everyone entertained during the evening.

Included in the ticket price are the lunch (2 lunches for tutorial tickets), drink vouchers for evening social and dinner in the evening.

Upgrade your PHP related skills with our tutorials

Ticket sales are well underway, and with christmas at our doorstep what better gift could you get than a whole new skill set from one of these great tutorials.

All these tutorials are sold with a conference ticket so you’ll get both the tutorial and a selection of great talks to even further extend your knowledge. And to top it off don’t forget you’ll meet a lot of people from around the globe during our socials, with who you can have a drink and exchange all the great ideas that make our industry what it is today and what it’ll be in the future.

CfP status update

On September 30 we have closed our Call for Proposals (CfP). We received 398 proposals in total from 126 different speakers.

We have made our selection of tutorial speakers and are awaiting their confirmation.

In the mean time we’re going through the regular talk proposals trying to come up with a short-list of talks, but this process is taking a long time because there are many great talks sent in.

We hope to finalise our short-list and get all tutorial speaker confirmation this week so we can start our ticket sales by the beginning of November.
