Can I bring my children to Udemy LIVE?
Udemy LIVE is a professional event, and therefore not appropriate for attendance by children and youth under the age of 18. We ask that you do not bring children with you to official Udemy LIVE events. If your children accompany you on your visit to Berlin, hotels are often able to coordinate local babysitting services. All Udemy LIVE events require each attendee to register for a ticket for admittance.
Can I bring my spouse, significant other, etc. to Udemy LIVE?
Attendance at all official Udemy LIVE events requires a registration and ticket for admittance. In previous years, we have offered guest tickets for select dinner events for purchase. A gala dinner will not be held at Udemy LIVE 2019, and guest tickets will not be available for other evening events. If you would like to bring a guest to Udemy LIVE, they must purchase a full conference ticket to attend.
What is the Udemy LIVE dress code?
Udemy LIVE is a business casual event. Feel free to get more dressed up (cocktail attire) for the Saturday party, but it’s not mandatory! Business suits are definitely not required, and most attendees wear casual clothing, including jeans.
I require a VISA to travel to Berlin, Germany for the conference. How can I work with Udemy to obtain one?

To verify whether you will need a visa to attend Udemy LIVE, it is recommended that you reach out to your local German consulate or embassy for details. If you are in need of a visa to attend Udemy LIVE, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
