Do we offer a student ticket AKA can I attend for free?

Many BSides conferences do offer free tickets, we, unfortunately, cannot due to the costs of running the event, it is Vancouver after all! That said, we do provide a premium experience and subsidize the costs of all tickets by 30-50% to ensure the event is accessible for all.

If you are a student, we will be offering a student-priced ticket at the end of February with valid student email and ID.

If you can't support us financially, support us with your time by volunteering! Give us some of your time and the rest of the conference is yours! Sign up to be a volunteer at https://www.bsidesvancouver.com/volunteers

No catering this year?

Catering is by far our biggest expense and over the years we have been substantially underwhelmed by the offerings and frustrated by the food waste. Therefore, BSides Vancouver has decided not to cater lunch this year and re-allocate funds to making the conference MOAR awesome. Fear not, there is a food court one floor below the conference and if you purchase an elite badge you will receive lunch vouchers for both days.


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at events@fourthplanet.ca


What's the refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable. While we would like to be flexible with our community, dealing with refunds takes away time from the organizing of the actual event.

If you have submitted a paper and are accepted or if you have decided to volunteer your time we will gladly refund your ticket.

If you purchased a ticket you can login to Eventbrite and transfer your ticket to another user. Please do not contact us to do so.
