EU DisinfoLab 2024 Annual Conference

9-10 October, Riga, Latvia

Manage your registration

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.

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 is 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 (31 May 2024).

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.

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, and did not notify us, your future registrations might be put on hold.
