One of our goals for EclipseCon NA 2013 is to make it accessible to more people. Over the past number of years we have heard from individuals and companies that would have like to attend but the registration price was too high. Therefore, I am thrilled that this year we have been able to reduce the early registration price (before Dec. 31) to just $800. Last year the price was $1345, so we have dropped this price 40%!
We have also introduced a non-corporate price for individuals who are paying to attend out of their own pocket. If you can’t convince your company to pay, you can purchase an all-access badge for just $500. We hope this will allow even more individuals to attend. There is a limited number of passes available at the non-corporate prices, so register early.
As in past years, we are also looking for a number of student volunteers and we have a student price of just $400.
To reduce the prices we have had to make some changes to the conference. Returning attendees will notice that breakfast will no longer be served and there won’t be a dinner reception on Wednesday evening. There are lots of restaurants close to the hotel so attendees will have an opportunity to explore the area. We have also reduced the member/alumni discount to $100 (from $250) and decreased the rate for group discounts.
Registration is now open for EclipseCon NA 2013. I hope a lot more people are able to take advantage of the lower prices and attend EclipseCon NA. As a reminder, the conference call for papers is now open. We want to hear from everyone that has an interesting speaking proposal.
