Thanks to the support of the The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, DjangoCon US 2016 will be one of the largest and most affordable DjangoCon US conferences to date.
On average, our early bird prices are 30% cheaper than last year and cheaper than any previous DjangoCon US conference.
Our student/diversity rate this year is $195, a 22% savings (or $55) compared to last year's rate.
Our individual rate this year is $295, a 40% savings (or $200) compared to last year's rate.
Our corporate rate this year is $495, a 29% savings (or $200) compared to last year's rate.
Our Early Bird rates were good through the end of May. Starting June 1st, our ticket levels went up $50.
We could not do this without our volunteers, the community, and our sponsors.
By registering for DjangoCon, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct at all events, whether officially sponsored by the conference or not.
Reserve your hotel accommodation to take advantage of our discounted room rates.
Which ticket should I pick?
If you are a student, unemployed, on a lower income, or feel you would benefit from a reduced-priced ticket, please pick the student/diversity rate. If your employer is paying your way then please pick the corporate rate. If you work for a small company, or the corporate rate is not reasonable for your company, then please pick the individual rate. State or government institutions should use the corporate rate if they are able. If you need assistance with travel, accommodation expenses, and/or a conference ticket then please apply for a grant by April 25.
We also have a diversity sponsorship tier. All funds from this tier will go to our Financial Aid program. In addition, sponsors may purchase extra tickets to help support someone else who needs assistance. The more corporate tickets and donations that we receive, the more student tickets and financial aid we can make available to attendees.
What was the biggest change this year?
DjangoCon US is now 100% volunteer-based and supported by the non-profit Django Events Foundation North America (DEFNA). All profits are used to keep conference prices low and support community events.
How can we drive the price of tickets down even more?
Our tickets are priced based on our overall costs to run the event. The only way to drive the cost of conference tickets down is to increase our sponsorship or to donate money to help offset these costs. If you'd like to become a sponsor, contact us!
