Let’s explore the venue!
Registration starts at 9:00 am on Saturday.
Remember to prepare your electronic ticket in advance as you will need it to check in for the event.
During the registration you will get a badge and a wristband. Remember do not lose them and keep them with you at all times - they allow you to move freely around the venue. If you have bought a "MEALS INCLUDED" ticket, you will also get food tokens from us, which you can use at food tracks and food points.
With your wristband and badge, you can enter and leave the Tauron Arena whenever you want.
Registration booths will be open:
Saturday: 9:00 - 20:00
Sunday: 9:00 - 17:45
Planning to come by car? You will pay 10 PLN for parking on the grounds of the Tauron Arena for a single entry (you can keep your car there all night without additional charges).
When you get hungry, you can fill your stomach at several food points (marked on the map, on level A). You'll also find snacks in the partner area and in the foodtracks located outside (you go through the exit in the partner area).
You can pay for your food with tokens, cash or credit card.
Coffee break is available in the partner zone and at the reception of the small hall, that is in front of the quiet work zone.

For each participant we have prepared a table, chair, power and internet - both on WiFi and on cable (RJ45).
What should you bring with you from home?
Be sure to take a computer (it is a must, can be both a laptop and a PC), remember to bring an adapter for RJ45 cable if you do not have such an input in your computer, also pack additional equipment that you know may come in handy: headphones, mouse, keyboard, extra monitor, etc. If you have a lot of external stuff, take an electrical extension cord too. We have a few of these, but may run out in case of increased demand. It is best to bring your equipment by car and take the elevator to the hall.
Don’t forget to bring a sleeping bag and a warmer jacket or a blanket if sleep overtakes you; at Tauron Arena, we provide a sleeping area with mattresses (first come, first served).
Remember that you are responsible for your equipment. If you leave your workstation either take your computer with you or leave it in the care of another team member (or colleague). We are not responsible for items left in the hackathon area.
TOILETS AND BATHROOMS
At the facility, you'll find multiple toilets on each floor, so you shouldn't have to worry about queues. They are all marked. However, you will find bathrooms with a shower, loo and changing room on level 0. Remember to bring your towel and toothbrush, because a shower after a hard day/night's work is great for refreshing the mind!
We try to make the hackathon space friendly and comfortable for everyone. That's why we've prepared some facilities that everyone can use:
- quiet work zone (floor 0),
- sleeping zone (floor B),
- medical point (floor 0),
- prayer room (floor 0),
- feeding corner,
- adapted space for prams,
- space adapted to people in wheelchairs,
- kids zone to keep your children busy for a while.
If you cannot use the stairs, elevators will take you to each floor. We especially recommend elevators 8 and 13 - they will take you to all the most important places!
Remember to pack a pillow and blanket with you. We will have a few mattresses available for participants, but the number will be severely limited.
Still have questions? Find us in the INFO POINT (located in chillout zone) - floor 0, number 10 on map!
