Very sad news for many and it is unfortunate. However, it is also understandable. Kudos to the organizers for taking such a big decision.
WordCamp Europe 2020 in Porto has been postponed due to the ongoing and increasing uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19. We’d like to explain to you what this means. It is with heavy hearts that we announce WordCamp Europe will be postponed until 2021.
The decision to postpone WCEU 2020 was not made lightly, as each member of the organising team is deeply invested in the event, but it was made collectively.
As a community, we have decided, after carefully monitoring the international situation, the advice of organisations such as the World Health Organization and WordPress Community Support (aka WordCamp Central), and the concerns of our community, that the in-person event we envisioned — a diverse, inclusive, safe, fun, and educational event — is impossible, given the current circumstances.
All paid WCEU 2020 tickets will be refunded automatically through the same payment method used to purchase the ticket. You do not need to request a refund manually.
It may take up to 15 days for the refund to appear in your account, depending on your bank. Please note that if you purchased your ticket via PayPal more than 180 days ago, it may take more time to refund
