We would like to apologise for the problems users reported today when they wanted to order and purchase tickets for our conference.
Even though we had prepared everything on our side and tested everything thoroughly, unexpected situations lead to unforeseen results.
A new platform and necessary changes for GDPR in the purchasing flow caused untested scenarios which lead to a delayed availability of the shop with payment issues as a result. We’re working closely with our team to solve reported issues swiftly and ensure everyone receives their tickets.
As a precaution we have temporarily closed the ticket sales for our sponsors and speakers. The early bird ticket sales will be available for ticket purchase according to availability of tickets. The early bird period will last until December 5 or when all our tutorial tickets have been sold (whichever comes first). Only then regular ticket sales will be available for combo tickets (tutorial and conference) and for regular conference only tickets.
Again, a sincere apology from the whole PHPBenelux Team.
Everyone is very anxious to hear if they were selected for our 10th anniversary conference. Our CFP team is working hard to select the talks that will be given at the conference, but they have to make really hard choices and some of them are still in debate.
So we’re already contacting the already approved list of speakers to ensure that they can make it to our conference.
Meanwhile it will give us time to discuss about the remaining talks and speakers who will be contacted later this week.
Of course we can’t select all the people who have submitted one or more talks to our call for papers, so once we are sending out the remaining speakers we will also be sending out our “Dear John” letters to those who didn’t made it to our schedule.
