Why did the event dates changed from October 2021 to May 2022?
The FoodHack Summit was planned at a time when the COVID delta variant was not yet known. Due to the recent increase spread, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the event to May 2022 to :
1) Ensure the safety of all participants.
2) Ensure that our international speakers and attendees can attend the event without any travel / quarantine restrictions.
3) Maintain the quality of the event that we envisioned and promised to all attendees and stakeholders. Read more here.
Why not make the FoodHack Summit a virtual event?
Virtual events can be great, they’re just not right for the FoodHack Summit.
The goal of the FoodHack Summit is to bring international speakers and attendees together to meet in-person at an event that emphasises networking and collaboration. One where we can shake hands, high five, eat from buffets, try new products from startups and just hang out in close proximity.
We believe virtual formats have limitations and would not allow for us to carry out this vision.
Can I get a refund if I cannot come and what is the deadline for this ?
If you cannot join due to travel restrictions, you can choose to get a total refund OR a partial refund to give you access to the virtual Summit experience.
If you've already booked a ticket before the change of dates, please fill in the form here to let us know if you prefer to request a full refund OR to hold your ticket for the Summit in May 2022.
I’ve already booked my flights / hotel before the change of dates, what can I do?
Unfortunately we don't cover flight / hotel cancellations - we do recommend requesting to change your flight / hotel dates so that you can attend the Summit in 2022. The dates are 12th - 13th May.
Please contact email@example.com if you need an official cancellation letter from us in order to share with you work, flight or hotel accommodation.
What If I’d like to keep my ticket to attend in 2022?
We’d love to have you maintain your ticket and use it to attend the Summit in 2022. You’ll also likely have secured the best price ticket available as prices will increase in 2022. If you haven’t yet, please fill in the form here to let us know you'd like to postpone your ticket.
Will you have the same speakers and agenda in 2022?
Yes - many of the speakers confirmed for 2021 will stay on in 2022. For the few that cannot make it, we’ll have speakers of the same calibre.
We're maintaining what we believe is a winning agenda for 2022, you can already find the provisional schedule here
Will you still be hosting a Summit in 2021?
No, we will not be hosting the Summit until in-person events are possible. We have instead moved the FoodHack Summit to May 12-13th 2022 and in-place of the Summit, we will be hosting an invite-only Virtual Demo Day.
You can find more details on FoodHack’s Virtual Demo Days here.
