EuroSTAR 20 Year Club

The EuroSTAR Conference has been running for 26 years and we are delighted to welcome many delegates that have been part of EuroSTAR year on year as well as new attendees. In recognition of the ongoing support and loyalty of the software testing community, we have a 20 Year Club with members who are known as honorary delegates. Members of the 20 Year Club are invited to attend the annual EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference free of charge.

How to qualify:

To achieve Honorary Delegate status an attendee must have been present at 20 editions of the EuroSTAR Conference. You must have attended as a delegate, speaker or programme committee member to qualify as a 20 Year Club member. (Attendance as an exhibitor does not count towards this award).

If you believe that that you have attended 20 EuroSTAR Conferences – or that you will do so in the next few years, then please let us know! We are happy to check and confirm attendance records for you. Email communications@eurostarconferences.com with any queries.
