Can I bring a guest with me to any of the Atmosphere activities?

Guests of Atmosphere 2018 EMEA attendees may attend the appreciation party on Wednesday night for a fee of EUR 100.00. This fee is charged during registration. Guests may not attend any other portion of the conference, including meals, keynote sessions, breaks, breakout sessions, and other official social activities. Please note that due to the availability of alcohol, minors under eighteen are unable to attend any part of the conference program.

Can I bring my family?

Yes!  Amadria Park is a lovely family friendly destination.  However, please note that no one under eighteen years can stay at either the Hotel Ivan or Hotel Jure during the main event dates (Monday 4 June – Thursday 7 June 2018) as these hotels are booked exclusively for the event and leisure facilities will not be in normal operating service.  The public areas are being utilised for business functions and as such, only registered attendees will be permitted in these hotels with official conference identification.   

If you require a family room, these are only available at the Hotel Andrija and supplementary costs must be paid directly to the hotel. Please contact the Aruba Event Team ( for further information on how to book a family room.

Why is there only ACDX as part of the certified testing track this year?

Due to this year’s location limitations, we are not able to deliver hands-on expert exams (ACCX/ ACMX). Nevertheless, we have added virtual expert exams (ACDX) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If you would like to take ACCX/ ACMX please visit the EMEA calendar of exams: ACMX | ACCX

How do the 2-day technical training sessions relate to official certifications?

The 2-days technical training sessions offered during the event help in getting the necessary knowledge on a certain product. They do not cover the full 5-days content which is necessary for P- professional level certifications.

We have added the modules to each 2-days technical training session, so you can get a hold of the exact content you will be able to follow.
