And what if Quarantine?

We all have a lot of questions and uncertainty about whether mass events will take place in autumn 2020.

We are constantly monitoring the situation in Ukraine and the decisions from our government regarding quarantine measures as well as overall situation in the world. And of course we stay positive and waiting for a usual event world to return back to normal.

Our preparation of JS FEST 2020 continues and we are already considering our actions in case of various restrictions related to mass events or travels.

That is why we have answered most common questions from you regarding the upcoming JS FEST 2020.

IF MASS EVENTS ARE STILL NOT ALLOWED BEFORE THE CONFERENCE DATE?

We clearly understand your concerns and considering the situation, we decided that if the ban on mass events is not lifted before the day of the conference, we will postpone it to the dates when the event can be conducted in the traditional offline format.
All tickets will be transferred automatically to the new conference date. You will receive an updated ticket with a new date to your email specified during registration.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH MY TICKET TO JS FEST 2020?

WHAT IF THE NEW CONFERENCE DATE DOESN'T SUIT ME?

We have an option of transferring the ticket to another participant. So, if the new conference date doesn’t suit you, you can give the ticket to another person. We will quickly replace the participant’s name on the ticket, however this is possible no later than 7 days before the conference.
We will follow all the rules and recommendations from Ukrainian government during the event.

WHAT IF MASS EVENTS ARE ALLOWED, BUT WITH SOME RESTRICTIONS?

WHAT ABOUT THE FOREIGN SPEAKERS?

If foreign speakers cannot travel due to local or Ukrainian COVID-19 restrictions, we will organize a live stream of the speaker’s talk. We will also create a separate chat for participants and speaker, where you can chat, discuss and ask all questions.
In case of date change, conference program can be changed. We will inform you about all changes and updates via email. You can also find all the latest information directly on the conference website and in our social networks.

WHAT ABOUT THE PROGRAM OF THE CONFERENCE?

DO YOU PLAN TO MOVE THE CONFERENCE TO ONLINE FORMAT?

No. Since we organize not only JS Fest, but also other technical IT conferences, we have already tried to hold some of our events in an online format. Such an experience was interesting and useful, but we realized that this our participants doesn’t receive all the benefits as they do in offline event. We strongly believe in offline format, we see great value in the informal communication between speakers and participants during the event.

Our team continues to think through every little detail to make this event convenient, comfortable, atmospheric, and safe for you!

Still have some questions?
