Mark your calendars and request your ticket for the EU DisinfoLab 2024 Annual Conference, on 9-10 October 2024, at the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel in Riga, Latvia.

The two-day conference will gather leading specialists from diverse backgrounds, exploring the pressing challenges in the realm of disinformation. This year, our conference will address various trends emerging in the field of disinformation, such as the role of supranational institutions in curbing the impact of disinformation, the risks and opportunities around AI, the issue of capacity building, the lessons learned from the many 2024 elections in the world, and the challenges of the implementation of the most recent European legislation.

By being part of our conference, you will join renowned experts and stakeholders from across the disinformation world for a mix of insightful panel sessions, inspiring interviews, keynotes and workshops provided by high-level speakers, including:

  • Melissa Fleming, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications, TED speaker, author of the book ’A Hope More Powerful than the Sea’, host of the award-winning UN podcast, Awake at Night
  • Hamza Al-Kateab, Syrian doctor, human rights activist and public health advocate, co-founder of Action for Sama
  • Waad Al-Kateab, Syrian activist and award-winning filmmaker, co-director of ‘For Sama’, co-founder of Action for Sama
  • Carl Miller, author of the book ‘The Death of the Gods – The New Global Power Grab’, speaker and researcher at Demos, co-founder at the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media

To maintain the quality and independence of the event, we are introducing a nominal registration fee for the conference. This decision was not made lightly, and we sincerely hope you will understand and support this approach – for more information, please read here.

Please note that this is a physical event. No live streaming option will be provided, and the sessions will not be recorded.

#Disinfo2024: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Practical information about our annual conference is recapped below.

Manage your registration
Registration request & confirmation

In #Disinfo2023, we were pleased to receive more than 800 requests to attend. Unfortunately, managing these requests has a cost, and this year we will have to restrict the attendance to professionals only. If your request to attend #Disinfo2024 is approved, you will be notified via email with details on how to process your participation fee and arrange your accommodation.

Registration fee

For the first time, we are introducing a nominal registration fee for the conference, to maintain the quality and independence of the event. In an era where many services claim to be “free” often turning users into the “product”, we strive to align with our ideals of independence and authentic freedom of speech. This approach ensures that our conference reflects our values.

Organising the conference incurs an average expense of about 500 EUR per attendee, covering venue, catering, staff, onsite support, and preparatory work. In our previous free conferences, no-shows have resulted in large unnecessary expenses. We hope this moderate registration fee will limit avoidable losses. Furthermore, we are delighted to announce that this year’s conference will feature even more content, including a third conference track and a movie screening. And, in our opinion, some absolutely fantastic speakers!

The Early Bird registration fee will be 100 EUR (excluding VAT) for civil society members, academics, and journalists, and 150 EUR (excluding VAT) for government and corporate attendees. This fee will increase to respectively 120 EUR and 180 EUR after the initial Early Bird period.

We sincerely hope for your understanding and support in this decision.

We keep track of no-shows. If in prior EU DisinfoLab conference editions you were granted access but didn’t attend without notifying us, your #Disinfo2024 registration might be put on hold.


Your individual badge will be sent by email two weeks before the conference, allowing you to print it in colour prior to the conference. 

The EU DisinfoLab’s official photographer will capture moments during the event. If you prefer not to be photographed, you will be able to request a red lanyard for your badge at the registration desk on-site.

Managing or cancelling your participation

If you are unable to attend the conference, please cancel your participation (see Terms and Conditions), and we will then notify participants on the waiting list. We keep track of no-shows – if you were granted access but didn’t attend without notifying us, your future registrations might be put on hold.


Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel. Address: Elizabetes iela 55, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1010, Latvia


Please note that access to the conference venue will only be granted to people with an official #Disinfo2024 badge.

Visa requests

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to assist with individual or group Visa requests or processes.


#Disinfo2024 is an in-person conference. We are excited to enjoy the networking time real-life events offer!

Call for proposals closed - thanks for all your ideas!
