Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

We would prefer that you show us an e-Ticket on a portable device (smartphone, tablet etc.) to save paper, but if this is not possible, please bring your printed ticket with you. 

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

This isn't a problem for us, but we won't be able to print you a name badge in advance.
