Please note that, due to local Dubai legislation that applies to all events in Dubai including the RIPE Meeting, additional information regarding attendees will be required during the registration process. For more information, visit our page on the DTCM requirements.
How Much Does It Cost?
Full Week Attendance Option
The meeting fee for the entire week is €350, including VAT.
Day Ticket Option
Day tickets cost €125, including VAT, per day. We offer these tickets as an alternative to the regular week ticket, they are meant for those who are unable to attend the full week.
Active full-time students can buy a discounted ticket for €50, including VAT, which includes attendance at all sessions throughout the week. You must show a valid student identification card upon arrival at the meeting. We do not offer a student discount for day tickets or for the RIPE Dinner. When registering for the RIPE Meeting, students can choose to list themselves as “student” or enter the name of the academic institute where they are studying or leave this field blank. The student discount is not valid for students attending on behalf of another organisation.
Presenters and Panellists
Presenters, working group chairs and RIPE Programme Committee members pay to attend the RIPE Meetings just like all other attendees. In extraordinary circumstances, the RIPE Chair can waive the meeting fee for presenters. These requests are dealt with on a case-by-case basis via pc [at] ripe [dot] net
All ticket options include lunch and coffee breaks.
Many attendees see this as the highlight of the week’s social events. You can buy a ticket for the RIPE Dinner at the same time that you register for the meeting. The ticket price for the RIPE Dinner is fixed at €50, including VAT, per person. Tickets are often available at the meeting but, to avoid missing out, we advise you to book at the same time as registering.
