To encourage team visits, we have discounts available for larger groups. These can be requested by email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com).
Will images be taken during the event?admin2022-06-17T17:50:31+00:00
Yes, one or two photographers will be present at Appdevcon & Appril and there’s a video crew who record sessions and make an aftermovie. Don’t want to be photographed or filmed? Please get an orange ticker at the reception desk and place it visibly on your badge. We will try to avoid taking pictures of people with orange stickers; if they do end up on a picture we will try to blur them.

What is the difference between Appril and Appdevcon?admin2022-06-17T17:56:07+00:00
Appril Festival is a festival for app makers. Historically it has focused on all aspects of the development process, from connecting to app marketing. Appdevcon is a conference for developers. It has always focused on the most technical aspects of the development process, with tracks specific to Android and iOS developers.
In 2020, both events were canceled due to covid. For 2022 we have joined forces to bring you one event that caters to both target audiences. A ticket gives access to all tracks from both events.
For attendees with a specific focus, we have labeled Appdevcon talks blue and Appril talks red in the schedule. Some talks will cater to both audiences, so some tracks are both blue and red.
What is the schedule for the conference?admin2022-06-17T17:56:44+00:00
For a major event like Appdevcon & Appril, a large location that is easily accessible for everyone is required. Considering this is the largest and most spacious cinema in Amsterdam, it is a very suitable location.
Historically Appdevcon has always been. held in cinema’s. There is a special atmosphere in a cinema, with big screens and comfy seats, that give Appdevcon it’s own culture.
The Appril Festival is typically held in spaces with large community area’s for meeting and mingling with people. At Pathé Amsterdam Noord we have the best of both worlds: it’s a cinema like Appdevcon has always used, but it also has a large event lounge which we’ll use for people to mingle and meet.
I bought tickets for Appdevcon or Appril 2020, but the event was cancelled. Can I still use these tickets?admin2022-06-17T18:06:16+00:00
No. Since Friday 25th of February 2022, showing a proof of vaccination or negative test is no longer necessary. Still we want to be careful, so we recommend wearing a face mask inside in crowded environments. Also, the fist bump is still safer than a handshake.
Has Appdevcon taken extra measures with regard to air ventilation?admin2022-06-17T18:15:00+00:00
The event is held in the Pathé building in Amsterdam North. The air ventilation of this venue complies with all laws and regulations. The air in the rooms does not circulate; it is completely refreshed every ten minutes.
Their rooms are equipped with a complete climate treatment system. This keeps them nice and cool at all times, even in summer.
In addition to these air treatments, we recommend wearing face masks, we promote the use of self tests before the conference if someone has symptoms associated with covid, and we ask people to stay at home in the case of fever or a positive test. Someone who has to stay at home due to covid can expect to receive a full refund of their ticket or a rain check for next year.
Where can I find my invoice/receipt?admin2022-03-25T12:01:19+00:00
Unfortunately due to the hands-on nature of some of our trainings/tutorials, these sessions will not be recorded. The Friday conference sessions are recorded however. The sessions of previous years are on the video page. The sessions of this year’s event will be published a few weeks after the conference.
I have special dietary requirements, will these be catered for?admin2022-06-17T18:23:24+00:00
Yes, you can transfer your ticket to a colleague. Please inform us if you decide to do this so we can change the registration details on our system and send your colleague a new ticket with the correct name.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the event is done at 17.00h. On Friday, the conference closes at 17.30 but there’s an after party immediately afterwards. There is no strict end to the after party, but the bar closes at midnight.
What will I receive ahead of the event?admin2022-06-17T18:36:49+00:00
If you purchase a training ticket you can indicate during booking which session you want to attend. For Friday’s conference session this is not necessary, but given the smaller scale, classroom type setup of the Tuesday to Thursday sessions, it is required to select which sessions you want to attend.
If you purchased a ticket before the program was finalised, we will contact you to make your selection as soon as the schedule is completed.
I am a student, can I receive a discount?admin2022-06-17T18:39:03+00:00
We offer a limited number of student discounts. Please take a look at our ticket shop for availability. Upon arrival at the event, you may be asked for proof that you are indeed entitled to the student discount.
