ESSKA is closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are planning to host a successful physical event in Warsaw. However. if there are any changes to this due to circumstances beyond our control, all delegates will be informed immediately.


Registration Name Change

A handling fee of 30 EUR will be charged for every name change to an existing Event registration. A new registration form for the substitute attendee should be submitted, as well as a proof for the reduced fee if applicable. Name changes will only be accepted until the pre-registration deadline indicating clearly the new and old name. After the pre-registration deadline, all name changes must be carried out on-site.


Lost Name Badge

The name badge must be worn at all times during the Event. Access to the Event facilities will not be granted without a proper name badge. If an attendee loses, misplaces or forgets the name badge, a handling fee of 15 EUR will be charged for a new name badge. Upon handing out a new name badge, the lost badge will become invalid
