Important Update .
Considering the growing concerns around COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Test & Quality Summit from April to 21st October.
Most of our speakers are travelling from overseas, as are some delegates and partners, and it is important to ensure we have taken all steps necessary to minimise the risk for our speakers, delegates, exhibitors and employees.
All tickets will be valid for 21st October in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin (same venue).
In the meantime, we invite you to continue the learning online at EuroSTARHuddle.com between now and October.
For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions below:
Frequently Asked Questions .
Find answers to common questions about Test & Quality Summit. If you still have a question that you can’t find the answer to, please contact us.
I already bought my ticket to TQS – now the event has been postponed, do I receive a refund?
We will be hosting #TQS2020 on Wednesday 21st October instead of April due to travel concerns for our speakers and the safety of our attendees and exhibitors. All current ticket holders can transfer their ticket to the new date.
What if I can’t attend on the new date in October?
Individuals who are not able to attend may transfer their ticket to a colleague. To advise of name changes, please email us quoting your confirmation number, the name to be changed and the new delegate name with their job title, contact email and telephone.
What is happening to the talks that would have been presented in April?
We are currently working with the speakers to confirm the same programme for 21st October 2020. Should any of the speakers be unable to reschedule we will arrange to record their presentation and provide it to you for free on EuroSTARHuddle.com, our online learning site for the community. You can join for free and receive thousands of software testing and quality assurance learning resources.
What if I already booked flights and/or my hotel?
Please contact your airline / hotel to advise them that the event has been cancelled due to travel concerns over COVID-19 and ask them if you can change your booking to the rescheduled date.
Some airline tickets are refundable. However, it will depend on which airline you’re flying with and the type of fare you bought. Airlines such as British Airways, Easy Jet and Ryanair have announced several flight cancellations due to COVID-19 and are contacting customers booked on those flights. We recommend you get in touch with your travel provider directly.
Most hotels operate a 24hr/48hr cancellation policy but again it may depend on the offer you booked so it is best to contact them directly or contact the agency / online booking service that you used to make the booking.
Is there a travel ban in place due to COVID-19?
While the World Health Organisation (WHO) has not updated its current guidelines for either precautions or travel, they have provided the following statement via Situation Report – 43 issued on 3rd March 2020:
If you are not in an area where COVID-19 is spreading, or have not travelled from an area where COVID-19 is spreading, or have not been in contact with an infected patient, your risk of infection is low. It is understandable that you may feel anxious about the outbreak. Get the facts from reliable sources to help you accurately determine your risks so that you can take reasonable precautions. Seek guidance from WHO, your healthcare provider, your national public health authority or your employer for accurate information on COVID-19 and whether COVID-19is circulating where you live. It is important to be informed of the situation and take appropriate measures to protect yourself and your family (see Protection measures for everyone).
If you are in an area where there are cases of COVID-19 you need to take the risk of infection seriously. Follow the advice of WHO and guidance issued by national and local health authorities.
