Why has Brain Bar decided to reschedule this year's festival to autumn?
As you know the pandemic situation caused by COVID-19 has made it impossible for us to organize the event in June. Our main priority is the well-being of our visitors, speakers and partners and we think rescheduling is the responsible course of action. But fear not! Brain Bar Reboot! will come to you in Autumn, 2020.

What is the new date?
The new date of the festival is September 18-19.

What is the venue?
Our venue is still the same, Corvinus Campus.

Will there be a change in the program?
We are happy to confirm that almost all of our speakers will be available on the new dates. We have however reworked the topics to make sure we can provide you with useful guidance in the world after the pandemic. That’s why we call this year’s festival Brain Bar Reboot!

Please follow us on Facebook, attend the event and subscribe to our newsletter here to get the latest updates on the program.

What if I already have a ticket?
Your ticket is still valid for the new date. You'll need to show the QR code on your ticket at the entrance to get your wristband.

What if I cannot attend the new date?
In case that you already have a ticket but cannot attend, you can ask for reimbursement. You can request a full refund in the following 30 days without any processing fees, until June 6 by clicking here.

After June 6 we can not reimburse your ticket, but you still have the option to change the name of your ticket until the new dates.

What safety measures will be implemented at the festival?
The safety of our visitors, our speaker and our team is Brain Bar's main priority. Considering the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and Hungary's National Public Health Center (NNK), we have decided to take the following precautions:

- Increasing cleaning and disinfecting, especially at high-volume touch points eg. food trucks, toilets and community spaces
- Increasing the number of our medical team
- Providing onsite information about the right hygiene practices
- We'll introduce a no-handshake policy at the festival to avoid unnecessary risks

What happens if the coronavirus epidemic won't be contained until the new date?
It is still a question whether the circumstances will allow us to hold a physical event in September. In case it won’t be possible, our team is tirelessly working to bring you a full-blown Brain Bar experience online. We are currently developing a virtual experience which will stay true to our values and help you navigate in the world that comes after the pandemic. Details will follow soon, in due time.

What's the date of Brain Bar 2021?
We’ll organize the festival as usual, on the first week of June.
