Questions regarding the coronavirus, the moved ‘The-Party Nieuwegein’ and ‘The-Party Online’

Yes! The-Party Nieuwegein will be held on 18, 19 and 20 December. The original date (early April) will be used for online competitions so that you will have something to do at home.

The Benelux has many beautiful events throughout the year. Starting in June we are very busy with organising CampZone. Most other events are in the September-November period. That’s why December is the logical choice. Unfortunately, this means that there will be a long wait until then and that the next edition wil be organised a  lot sooner than ‘a year later’.

Because ‘the show must go on’ we will be organising our originally planned PC competitions online. Everyone, even those without tickets, can participate. Prizes will be hardware prizes. Note: Prizes will only be sent to The Netherlands and Belgium.

Yes, that’s possible. We ask you to fill in this form. It is possible to get a refund until 11:59 pm on April 30. More instructions can be found in the form. You only have to fill in the form once with one of your tickets. The entire order will then be processed.

Refund requests will be forwarded to Eventix on May 1. They are responsible for the refunds. They won’t be able to answer most of your event related questions. You can contact us at info@the-party.nl

The attendees who bought their ticket via TicketSwap will be refunded via TicketSwap. Attendees who sold their ticket via TicketSwap will not receive money, they already received their money after all. 

We will change the date in Eventix. You will receive a new mail via Eventix, including a new date on the ticket, in May.

Unfortunately not. Because we are refunding tickets we are forced to empty the seatmap.

We’re currently doing our best to secure prizes for The-Party Online. We are depending on our partners for this. We are trying to get at minimum a prize for every winner and at maximum a prize for the top 3 of every tournament. Prizes are only delivered within the Benelux.
