in steemfest •  2 years ago


7 more weeks until SteemFest Amsterdam. We are currently 6 days in ticket sales and by now on average 7 tickets per day are sold. If this is the pace, the event will be sold out about 2-3 weeks before taking place. We therefore urge you to buy a ticket rather sooner than later.

A ticket, yes, "But for what" you may ask?
Today we added som new names on the line up list of speakers, panelists and performers of SteemFest 2016.

Without further ado this week unveiled:

Last week we already announced the first batch of speakers of SteemFest:

  • @ned, USA - CEO Steemit

  • @infovore, Nigeria - creator of the SteemMag series

  • @tatianamoroz, USA - singer/songwriter, podcaster and bitcoin aficionada

  • @xeroc, Germany - Longtime blockchain expert and developer of Piston

  • @heiditravels, USA / Portugal - travel blogger and surfer

  • @ericvancewalton, USA - writer of poems & novels such as the trending Alarm Clock Dawn series

Presentations, workshops and performances will generally last about 20 minutes max, unless more in-depth time is required. Other items will include: a 'Whale' panel and a 'Developer' apps pitch session and the Appy Hour in which you can shop by developers of several apps.

More names to be announced soon!


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._

Great opportunity for people who've never had to publicly speak!

Probably a good idea to do another post with the full list of attendants. Likely to be a selling point in and of itself.

Have a great time everyone!

Really looking forward to it. Very fancy for the entry price, and imagine if Steem has a rally, demand would go through the roof just to get the 1000 Steem Power!


true and you need to come to amsterdam to claim :)

I hope to eventually go to one of these events and meet you guys. I have a long way to go but I am learning a lot being on steemspeak :)

does the STEEMFEST'S VOLKSHOTEL PACKAGE include a ticket?


Pretty sure no. The 'package' refers to a package of hotel nights, not the whole event.


It does not. It's separate and you also purchase it separately. I'm sure you know how to book it if you need it but just in case:

This is so exciting! Going to be an amazing project :)
