Still in the frame­work of part 1, on Sunday, 12 Septem­ber 2021, we of­fer build­ing tours to Pass­ive House pro­jects on-site in Wup­per­tal and its sur­round­ings - and on­line. The con­fer­en­ce's second part takes place on 14 & 15 Septem­ber 2021, as a mere on­line-event.

All events or­gan­ized in or around Wup­per­tal as parts of the 25th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce 2021 will be car­ried out only if of­fi­cial or­ders re­gard­ing dis­ease con­trol meas­ures and lim­it­a­tions due to in­fec­tion oc­curences are not op­posed to a safe and prop­er ex­e­cu­tion of the event.

» Tick­et pur­chase

There are two types of tick­ets: De­pend­ing on which you choose, you can either at­tend the con­fer­en­ce on­line only or take part on­line and on-site in Wup­per­tal. The tick­et pur­chase must be sub­mit­ted via the on­line tick­et shop. By buy­ing a tick­et, a con­tract with the or­gan­ising body is agreed upon. The or­gan­ising body and con­tract­ing party is the Passivhaus In­sti­tut GmbH, Rhein­str. 44/46, D-64283 Darm­stadt, Ger­many.

The tick­et pur­chase is bind­ing and will be pro­cessed in the or­der in which they are re­ceived. The num­ber of par­ti­cipants is lim­ited, on­line as well as on-site. After the tick­et pur­chase and the im­me­di­ate pay­ment via the ser­vices offered, an in­voice will be is­sued, which will be sent to you by email and can be down­loaded in the on­line tick­et shop. Con­fer­en­ce tick­ets can - as long as there is still seats avail­able - be pur­chased in the on­line tick­et shop un­til 10 Septem­ber 2021 for now. The early book­ing dis­count can only be gran­ted if the re­gis­tra­tion is made be­fore 02 Au­gust 2021 (ex­ten­det to 20 Au­gust 2021) and pay­ment is com­pleted by  09 Au­gust 2021 (ex­ten­ded to 27 Au­gust 2021). Only those who have paid the full ap­plic­able fees ac­cord­ing to the se­lec­ted tick­et will be ad­mit­ted to the con­fer­en­ce.

» Can­cel­la­tions

Can­cel­la­tions are pos­sible un­til 16 Au­gust 2021 and are sub­ject to a fee of 4% of the tick­et price to be­ paid to the or­gan­ising body in the on­line tick­et shop. Fees which may be charged by the pay­ment ser­vice pro­vider will be re­tained by the or­gan­ising body. All can­cel­la­tions after 16 Au­gust 2021 will in­cur a fee equal to 50% of the cor­res­pond­ing con­fer­en­ce tick­et. From 03 Septem­ber 2021 no can­cel­la­tions are pos­sible and the full par­ti­cip­a­tion fee for all tick­ets pur­chased is due, but re­place­ment par­ti­cipants can be named.
