Accommodation

You’ll be staying at Golden Tulip, a 4-star hotel in the center of Warsaw.

The hotel is 15–40 minutes away from the airport, and only 20-minute walk away from the venue.

Flight & Transport from/to the Airport

Front-Trends covers the cost of your roundtrip flight or train.

Upon your arrival, look for someone with the Front-Trends logo. Our staff will be looking out for you at the airport or station to send you safely to the hotel via taxi. If for unexpected reasons, there is no one there to assist you, please take only taxis parked directly in front of the airport exit with a taxi sign and save a receipt for refund.

Speaker’s Dinner

We’d like to invite you to an exclusive dinner for speakers at 19:00 on Tuesday, May 23. The dinner location is Signature Restaurant (address: Poznańska 15, 00-680 Warsaw). We’ll have cabs waiting in front of Golden Tulip at 18:45, and the dinner venue is 10 minutes drive away from the hotel. If you plan to be coming from a different location, please let us know in advance so that we can organize your transport.

Please let us know about any food allergies you might have, so that we can plan safe dining options for you.

Photo session

We’ll have a photographer at the event and would like to offer you a photo session, so that you can use them in the future when speaking at other events. We’ll send you a detailed schedule before the event.

Presentation

  • The main screen will be a 8 m × 4.5 m LED screen, 2752 × 1548 physical pixels (1920 px × 1080 px recommended slides resolution), with HDMI, Display Port and VGA cables available on the stage.
  • Each slot is 30 minutes including Q&A. During the presentation, we will display the remaining time, and we can also notify you with a sound about the remaining time. Please plan accordingly.
  • We prepare two speakers at once during each break. If you are the second speaker in a set, please note that we will need to prep you during the preceding break (not right before your presentation), that includes setting up your laptop.
  • Let us know if you will perform live coding, or need access to sound or internet. We strongly suggest that you prepare screencast sequences as a backup plan for anything you’d like to show online during your talk.
  • You’ll have a headset microphone, a preview screen for your slides, an audio cable (mini-jack), and a stage sound monitor.
  • We strongly encourage you to send your presentation in advance for testing.

The Front-Trends team wishes you a smooth trip and a pleasant stay in Warsaw!
