EuroSTAR 2020: What, Why and Where (+ 5 Reasons You Can’t Miss It)-->
For the past 27 years, we’ve gathered the testing and QA community from all over Europe to bring you a conference that sparks inspiration, friendship and collaboration. EuroSTAR 2020 is being re-imagined… we’re bringing our incredible EuroSTAR speakers and talks online. It’s going to be our most ambitious programme yet.
We might be changing the how, but we’re still delivering the same high energy, adrenaline-filled EuroSTAR experience: visionary speakers armed with insights, ideas and inspiration; interactive training tutorials; cool new testing tool demos; and fresh new content: we’re increasing our keynotes, and are currently reworking the top-rated submissions to make EuroSTAR 2020 our best conference ever – all from your digital device.
Who will be there?
We have an impressive line-up taking shape and we can’t wait to share it with you! We’ve already introduced our first keynote line-up and our full programme launch is coming next week! Expect the best and brightest from the testing world. Of course, you’ll (virtually) bump fists with like-minded peers at online networking events. This is where you forget about the daily grind and start dusting off your ideas – here’s where they will flourish.
What about everything else?
It wouldn’t be EuroSTAR without your favourites, now newly imagined to ensure the best possible experience. Try the coolest software testing tools from worldwide brands at our Expo, ask our Test Doctors your most complex problems, and come visit Huddle – the heart of EuroSTAR. We’ll see you there for chats, fun games & lots, lots more.
Will Eurostar 2021 be back in person?
That’s a YES! EuroSTAR will be back in a European Conference Centre next year (currently a top secret!) This year, due to COVID-19, we are prioritising the health and safety of our community, partners and team, but in 2021, we can’t wait to welcome you back in person. As always, we’ll announce the Programme Chair for next year on the final day of the conference

1. Bottom Line: Create YOUR vision
We are always asking delegates to share their feedback, and here’s one we love: after attending, a delegate decided he was going to ask tougher questions at work – which led to better results and a promotion! You’ll be motivated and ready to put YOUR vision into action at you work.
