There are no stupid questions

But before you sound silly, read this.

Main Event

  • How can I attend the Main Event?
  • Tickets for THU 2019 will be available starting February 5, 2019, at 10:00 am CET (Malta time). They tend to sell out quickly so keep an eye on our updates! You can be notified by subscribing to our newsletter or follow us on social media.  
  • When and where does the Main Event take place?
  • THU will take place in La Valletta, Malta, an island surrounded by blue water, colorful boats and sunny weather! THU 2019 will start on the 23rd of September and finish on the 28th.
  • How much are the tickets for the THU Main Event?
  • Tickets to the THU Main Event have different prices: Please read our Terms and Conditions for more information and if you have any questions, drop us a line at [email protected].
  • How can I pay for the tickets?
  • You can use a Credit card or Multibanco (for Portugal only). We do not accept PayPal. If you have any issues with the payment method, reach out to us at [email protected].
  • How does the payment in installments work?
  • The total price of the ticket (ticket + VAT + fees) is divided by the number of installments, which may vary from 2 to 5, depending on when you purchase your ticket (this option is not available after May 31st). The sooner you purchase the ticket, the more installments you'll be able to have. We don't add any additional charges. You can read more about it here.
  • When should I arrive?
  • Pre-event activities usually start one day before the Main Event, so getting to Malta by September 22 is ideal. We suggest arriving in the morning for a relaxed trip from the airport to La Valletta and time to settle in.
  • How do I go from the airport to the venues?
  • You can read more on our plan ahead section here.
  • Where should I stay?
  • We advise you to stay in La Valletta, where THU will take place. The Three Cities (Vittoriosa, Senglea, and Cospicua) and Sliema are also good options because of their convenient public transportation. THU will provide special prices for attendees in some hotels in Malta. You can read more on our plan ahead section here.
  • What should I bring to THU?
  • Good vibes! And, because it's still hot in September, make sure to bring some sunscreen. We don't want to sound like your mother, but next to your swimsuit, do pack something warm for the chilly nights. And of course don't forget your portfolio, laptop and business cards.
  • It turns out I can't go, can I give my ticket to a friend?
  • Tickets can be transferred until September 1. Pioneer and Veteran Tickets can only be transferred to respectively another Pioneer or Veteran. For more information write to us at [email protected] and we'll try to help you!
  • Can I have a refund?
  • There are no refunds for THU Tickets. Please read our Terms and Conditions carefully. You're able to transfer your ticket under certain limitations. If you still have any questions, reach out to us at [email protected]
