Ticket cancellation is only possible for privately held tickets and must take place by 6 May 2017. Cancellation fees are €5, plus handling fees. Overall cancellation fees for Standard Tickets are a total of €12,89€.

A link with information about cancellation is inside your order confirmation e-mail that was sent to you right after your ticket purchase. In case you are unable to find that email, you may contact the Xing Event Team via: 

To save cancellation fees, it is also possible to sell a ticket you already purchased and have the name on the ticket changed accordingly. In that case, check the FAQ How do I transfer my ticket to another person?

It turns out that I can’t make it to re:publica after all and so I would like to transfer my ticket to someone else. How do I go about doing this?  

Not a problem. If you want to sell your ticket or gift it to someone then use the link provided in your confirmation e-mail, that was sent to you right after your ticket purchase. Please note that transfers can only be done until 6th May 2017 and that ticket prices cannot be reimbursed. So, if the ticket to be transferred is not a gift then it is up to you and the new recipient to work out your own payment method. Of course, you can still sell your ticket even if the 6th May 2017 deadline has passed. However, passed that date we won’t be able to change the original name on the ticket and nametag to that of the new attendee’s. There will however be blank nametags available on location at the accreditation desk, which can be filled out by hand.

If you have any further questions, simply send a short e-mail to: ticket(at) 

We will set up a dedicated accreditation booth for discount tickets at the main entrance to the event. Here you will be asked to show your student ID resp. other form of documentation.

Unfortunately, Early Bird Tickets are non-refundable but you can resell them and there usually are plenty of thankful takers to be found.

Yes. Your student ID must have been valid between November 2016 and May 2017. For example, a student ID from winter semester 2016/17 is all right, but one from summer 2016 cannot be accepted.

No worries, besides buying an Early Bird Ticket you have to two options for attending #rp17 – and they are both free:

  • Become a helper
    Before, during and after re:publica we are depending on the support from volunteer helpers. As a helper you will receive a Three-Day-Ticket in exchange for 8 hours of work, including catering. Helper accreditation will begin around February 2017.
  • Become a speaker
    Our Call for Papers begins in November. It will give you the chance to submit a talk, a workshop, a discussion panel or another form of action and thus apply to be part of the re:publica 2017 programme.

Up until now we have never had to reject anyone who has applied to be a re:publica helper. However, if more helpers apply this time than we need it may well be the case that we will have to reject a few applicants. If you do not want to run that risk, purchase a ticket now and sell it on later.

Access to the Business Lounge

Those who want to escape re:publica’s festival hubbub can head to the centrally located VIP lounge and use its calm atmosphere to conduct business or just hang out with old friends and new acquaintances and enjoy the catering with the re:publica and the MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin speakers.

  • Continuous catering during all three days

Four meals (breakfast, lunch, afternoon cakes, snack in the evening) as well as soft drinks, coffee and tea are included in the Business Ticket and are available throughout the day in the VIP lounge. All warm meals are freshly prepared by the STATION-Berlin kitchens and, of course, vegetarian options are also available.

  • Transferability

Compared to regular tickets, Business Tickets are transferable. For companies this means that colleagues can alternate attendance by sharing the company ticket. This way everyone can take in the re:publica atmosphere and become inspired, conduct meetings on location or let staff members with specific skill sets attend corresponding thematic focal areas during the conference.

No. Children up to and including 16 years of age have free admission.

Yes, for groups of pupils, students, trainees, people on social welfare, retirees and people with disabilities. Please present documents at the door.  Please send your inquiries for group tickets to ticket at

The re:publica has grown so much that it is impossible to keep the STATION courtyard open throughout the event. But this year, there are also more stages that are accessible for all visitors. Even so, there are certain times when you will be able to enter the courtyard without a ticket: The “pre:publica” on the Sunday before the event is open to everyone, and during the event, the courtyard will be open for all on the Tuesday and Wednesday night (the exact time will follow).


Last year we received over 900 submissions and unfortunately had to reject quite a few. However we also accepted many so don’t let that scare you off!
