As a reminder, SaaStr Europa is a fully vaccinated event
Our Health & Safety Guidelines apply to all attendees, including those traveling within Spain.
- Required: Vaccine verification for all attendees. All attendees must have a COVID-19 vaccination certificate showing that they have been fully vaccinated. You must have received your 2nd or subsequent vaccination within the last 270 days. A valid Covid recovery letter is acceptable if issued 180 days prior to arrival. Upload your proof of vaccine now to ensure you can attend.
- Also Required: Proof of Negative COVID test for all in-person attendees. All attendees will be required to show proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of entrance to SaaStr Europa. This is in addition to showing proof of vaccine. If you need to get tested on-site, plan to arrive Day 0, Monday 6th June from 14:00-20:00. We will also have on-site testing 7-8 June, but may take up to 45+ minutes, so plan accordingly.
- Also Required: Temperature checks each day of the event. Everyone attending will be required to undergo a daily temperature check prior to entry. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 Fahrenheit will not be permitted to attend.
Day 0 Kicks off, Monday 6 June
We’ll have Cava, snacks, and no lines for folks that come the afternoon / early evening before to grab their badges and/ or get a Covid test from 14:00-20:00. More importantly, it’s a great chill opportunity to meet a few other SaaS execs by the sea before things really rev up.

SaaStr Europa Networking
The Braindate Platform is Open! Braindates are designated into 3 group sizes: 1:1’s, 1:4s Small Groups, and 1:12s Super Braindates. No matter the size of the group, each Braindate is designed for you to share knowledge and network with fellow leaders during SaaStr Europa. The goal is to help each other learn something new, find mentorships, create partnerships, and exchange strategies.
There are two ways to participate in Braindates: First, you can join an existing Braindate on a topic that catches your attention. Or, you can create your own Braindate topic and allow other attendees to sign up and learn from you.
You should plan on booking your Braindates before you arrive to Europa. To get started, login to Braindate with the email you bought your ticket with and create a password. You’ll then notice the topic marketplace where you can post what you want to share or learn. We’ve already added a few Super Braindates and Meet a VC times to the platform that you can join!
We’ll have a huge Braindate Networking Lounge brought to you by Payhawk outdoors by the Cantina. Think couches, pillows, and plenty of space to learn something new! You’ll meet up for your Braindate on-site at the Braindate Networking Lounge!
You can also opt into meeting other folks on the mobile app — if you want. The mobile app has limited networking built-in, so opt into that if you want to meet other SaaS execs, and/or have them reach out to you.
Attend the cocktail parties on-site both evenings. You won’t have to go far — we’ll have great on-site parties on both 7 June and 8 June right at the venue, near the ocean. Stay to the end; they’re organized so you can both have fun and meet as many folks as possible.
See you there! See you soon!
It will be epic.
