The representatives of the registered institutions have been informed by email about the technicalities of the registration process for observers. The deadline for registrations is August 4th, the deadline for full payment September 4th. If your representative has not received the message or if you are interested but not part of a registered institution, please get in touch with Participant Affairs.
Observers are able to fully take part in Berlin Worlds but will not be speaking or judging in the tournament. That means they get accommodation for the duration of the tournament (December 27th to January 4th), though probably not at the Hotel Berlin, Berlin due to limited capacity; they also get three meals a day; they may participate in all socials and, of course, observe all preliminary and break rounds. To cover all costs the observer fee is 850 EUR per person.
Eligible are all persons who are at least 18 years old and able to enjoy an exciting 9-day tournament among more than a thousand students from all over the world. You do not have to be a student or a supervisor at any registered institution, not even a debater.
[Update, Sep 24th: Registration may still be possible. Please email Head of Registrations Teresa Widlok if you are interested.]
[Update, Oct 27: The registration for observers is now closed]
