FAQ


Is there a code of conduct for the event?

Yes. By registering, all attendees at any event hosted by Grafana Labs are required to comply with the event code of conduct and event terms and conditions.


What is your refund policy for passes? If I cannot attend, can I transfer my ticket?

Tickets are non-refundable, but you can request to transfer your ticket to someone else by emailing events@grafana.com.


Do you require everyone to be fully vaccinated to attend?

Attendees are required to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks (14 full days) after the final dose (1 of 1, or 2 of 2) of a government-approved vaccine. Participants will need to show proof of vaccination and a government-issued photo ID to enter the event.

We understand this adds a level of complexity to attending Grafana Labs events, but to make this decision, we looked to industry standards: Other conferences such as KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, Snowflake Summit, RSA, and Splunk .conf all require vaccination. Our priority is to make all attendees feel comfortable and safe.


Will masks be required at the conference?

Masks are encouraged but not required. This policy is subject to change based on local mandates and guidance. All participants will be notified prior to arrival if this policy changes.

Participants are asked to be respectful of each other’s comfort level on social distance. We will provide a visual indicator of social distance comfort levels for event participants to wear onsite (optional but encouraged).

You can register by purchasing a ticket on our website. Once payment has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email with your ticket.


Do I need to print my tickets?

You are not required to print your ticket; you can simply show one of our team members your ticket directly from your tablet or mobile phone upon arrival at the check-in desk.


What time should I arrive?

Our check-in desk will open at 12:45. Please make sure you check in at the front desk and collect your name badge. If you arrive before registration is open, please wait at the entrance hall of the venue until a member of the staff lets you in.


Can I purchase a ticket at the venue?

We kindly ask participants to purchase tickets ahead of the event via our website. Tickets will not be available to be purchased on-site.
