Q.What is included in the ticket price?

With a valid ticket you will get full access to both days of ChatbotConf 2017 including side events, the conference, food and drinks as well as the afterparty. Sounds like a good deal, right?

Q.Where can I find a place to stay in Vienna?

Same like last year, we are working with a selected hotel partner to get you the best deal for an accommodation close to the conference venue. This partner will be announced a few weeks prior to the conference.

Q.How can I help organizing CBC17?

Without the support of a strong local community, ChatbotConf would not be possible at all. If you want to be part of the event organization, please send us an email or join the "Call for Volunteers" which will be announced a few weeks prior to the conference.

Q.I'm a blogger. How can I cover the event?

Please send us an inquiry via email including some links to your work, a short bio about yourself and how and why you are interested in covering CBC17. Looking forward to working with you!

Q.When will the agenda be announced?

Since we are working with a big range of different speakers and panelists, the final agenda will be released around mid September. However, we can assure you that you will find a broad selection of interesting talks on both stages.

Q.How can I become a sponsor?

Being a partner of ChatbotConf 2017 gives your organization unique exposure in the international messaging & chatbot space with coverage in the US, Europe and beyond. We have a variety of options available. Please get in touch at ChatbotConf@orat.io
