Registration and cancellation conditions

I can't come after all. Should I cancel now?

We will adjust the catering to the number of guests. So please cancel in time if you cannot come after all. That way, we avoid wasting food and incurring unnecessary costs. Would you like to change or cancel your registration? You can do so on your personal page (you will find the link in the confirmation e-mail) or let us know via

I have passed on dietary requirements. Where can I find information on this?

You will receive information about this by e-mail before the event. Separate meals can be collected from the main bar.

Is there also an app?

Yes! We deliberately chose a digital programme booklet: the SURF Events app. Here you will find the programme, map, speakers and much more.

Download the app and log in with the event code Cloud24.

Tip: Create a profile in the app. In Favourites, you can easily compile your own programme in advance.

Recordings and presentations

Will recordings be made during the SURF Cloudevent?

Yes, the plenary sessions will be recorded. These will be available to all participants after the SURF Cloudevent. Then we will also make the recordings public for anyone who did not attend. For more information, please see our privacy statement.

Sometimes external photo and video crews are present during SURF events to create an atmospheric impression. In some cases, they also conduct short interviews with visitors and speakers. You may or may not grant permission for this yourself. We only publish the impressions after the interviewees have given their consent.

Can I revisit the presentations after the event?

Yes, we share all presentations afterwards.

Privacy and contact

I don't want to be recognisable in the picture. Is that possible?

Prefer not to appear in a video? Then ask for a red key cord when you enter and wear it during the day. Do you appear in the mood video as a visitor and would you like to object to the published mood images? Please let us know via
