It’s almost time – on July 17, 2019, the first wave of general admission tickets for the Devcon conference will be available online at 6:00 AM PT/ 9:00 AM ET / 3.00 PM CEST / 10:00 PM JST..
To ensure that everyone has an equal chance to attend, tickets can only be purchased in pairs and no single organization can buy more than 20 tickets. Additionally, this year’s transition to an open source ticketing system provides customizations like a BYOB (bring your own badge) option and the ability to opt out of swag. Opting-in ensures that you only get the items that interest you and allows us to reduce waste through not overproducing.
Two-thirds of the tickets are discounted or free for students and builders, as well as other groups. The cost per ticket is approximately the same as for Devcon’s previous three events (a few € cheaper this year). The proceeds will go towards operations at the Ethereum Foundation and to provide scholarships and sponsorships to community leaders to help bring people to the table. Osaka Tickets are available at reduced prices for those who cannot attend otherwise.
To make the ticketing process more welcoming and transparent, Devcon is releasing waves of tickets. This ensures that any bugs or issues can be addressed before the next wave. Keep an eye out for more ticket releases, as well as early news about speakers and the timing for the last window for talk submissions.
