Announcing Fourth Batch of Names for SteemFest + Final Reminder: Book Volkshotel Package BEFORE coming Wednesday!

in steemfest •  2 years ago


5 more weeks until SteemFest Amsterdam! And only less than 1 week to claim the SteemFest Volkshotel package!

Claim your Volkshotel Room before coming wednesday 12 October!

Why? Because on that 12th of October the left-over rooms will go to general market again and anyone can book those rooms again. Please note that you don't have to stay in the Volkshotel perse, however some activities start here and many steemians will stay here, so it is actually a great option...

Btw, I did a little videotour in the Volkshotel earlier this week.

And then ofcourse you also need a SteemFest ticket. A ticket, yes, "But for what" you may ask? Well, today we added more new names on the line up list of speakers, panelists and performers of SteemFest 2016.

Make the most out of your buck, go with a group to SteemFest!

By buying a group ticket (minimum 4) you get a 10% discount in the SteemFest Ticketshop. The discount is automatically applied once you order 4 or more tickets of the same kind in the ticketshop. Please note that every ticket needs its own unique Steemit Username.

If you want to buy as a group tickets with SBD, very welcome! Multiply the single SBD ticketprice (144 SBD) with minimum 4 tickets and subtract 10% = 518.4 SBD (for 4) recalculate for the amount needed.. Note that you need to pay the amount at once via the instructions on , so no split bills in this case!

Stay with 2 in one room in SteemFest Volkshotel. The € 285 package price for SteemFest Volkshotel is for 3 nights per room. You can stay with 2 people in one room. So use the #steemfest channel to find roommates. Note that Volkshotel only has about 20 'twin bedded' (2 seperate beds) rooms so be sure to claim early and also mention that you want a 'twin bedded' in your reservation EXPLICITLY. (maybe even in the subject). By combining smart, you save about 60% of the normal price.

Buy your SteemFest ticket(s) with SBD by following the instructions on

It involves a little bit of manual work, but with the pregenerated payment & email links you are done within 1 minute... _Note that SBD paid tickets are processed manually, minimum twice per day._
