Travel green

We encourage our visitors to use public transport and book a hotel close to the venue as it can reduce your carbon footprint.

Go digital

All event badges will be available through our Fi Europe app, set to be launched closer to the event date in November. By going digital, we are removing the need for printed paper from the Fi Europe experience.

Reduce waste

Using a reusable coffee cup and water bottle to recharge and stay hydrated during the event dramatically reduces waste.
