API Platform Con will take place in Lille, meeting point of European cities and touristic capital of the Flemish region. The conferences are held in Euratechnologies, the 1st startup incubator and accelerator in Europe. Both tracks (in English and in French) will be streamed online.
Once you’re arrived in Lille, we invite you to use public transport. You will find all travel information on how to get to the event here.
The nearest metro station is at 10min walking distance from the event. Lille is also a bike-friendly city and has a bike-sharing station in front of the main track. There are, however, paid car parks nearby but in limited numbers.
All tracks are accessible to people with reduced mobility.
Your invitation will be sent a couple of hours before the D-day. If you didn’t receive anything, check your spam or trash for an email from [email protected]. If you still do not find it, email us [email protected] with your order email or order ID and we will get it to you as soon as possible.
The doors will open on September 15 at 08:15 AM and the opening keynote will start at 09:10 AM. After presenting a piece of ID at the reception desk, you will receive your access badge.
You can buy your ticket on our website. There are no on-site ticket sales, but you can buy your ticket online up until 2 days before the event.
Your badge allows you to enter and exit the venue as you wish.
The online and on-site edition is free for students or unemployed developers. Contact us at [email protected] to get your voucher (a proof of school attendance will be asked).
The on-site edition of API Platform Con gives you access to coffee and lunch breaks provided by our caterer. Otherwise, several restaurants and food trucks are surrounding the area.
A wifi connection will be provided by Euratechnologies.

Seats are not allocated: we advise you to be present a few minutes before the launch of each conference.
During the last minutes of each conference, it would be possible to question the speakers. Raise your hand and a staff member will bring you a microphone.
You can take pictures of the venue and of the conferences, just be careful to not disturb the speakers during their talk and do not insist on taking pictures of the participants. Note that you are likely to be photographed and to appear on our communication media.
