Ticket cancellation is only possible for privately held tickets and must take place by 30 April 2018. Cancellation fees are € 5,95 plus handling fees. As an example, the overall cancellation fees for a Standard Ticket (€ 210,-) are a total of about €12,81. The amount for other ticket may differ.

You will find a link to cancel your ticket in your order confirmation that you received after your order. If you can not find that email, please contact the Xing-Events-Team.

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?

I purchased a Reduced ticket but will be finishing my studies in March 2018. Can I still use the ticket?

Yes. Your student ID must have been valid between November 2017 and May 2018. For example, a student ID from winter semester 2017/18 is all right, but one from summer 2017 cannot be accepted.

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 30 April 2018. 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 30 April 2018 deadline has passed. However, passed that date we will not 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.
If you have any further questions, simply send a short e-mail to: ticket (at)

What are the benefits of buying a Business Ticket?
  • Access to the Business and Speaker’s Lounge 
    Those who want to escape re:publica’s festival hubbub can head to the centrally located Business, Speaker’s and 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 lounge. All warm meals are freshly prepared at 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  and MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin atmosphere and become     inspired, conduct meetings on location or let staff members with specific skill sets attend     corresponding thematic focal areas during the conference.
