Kiwi PyCon 2014: Open for Registration!

July 23, 2014 by Tom Eastman

Tickets for the main part of the conference (for Saturday and Sunday the 13th and 14th of September) are now on sale.

If you've attended a Kiwi PyCon before, you'll already be familiar with our pricing structure, but this year we're introducing an additional tier. So here's a breakdown of all the ticket prices and what they get you:

Conference tickets (Saturday and Sunday)

All tickets include both days of the main conference, the Kiwi PyCon 2014 T-Shirt (register soon to make sure you get your preferred size), and food during the conference (morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea).

Please help us to make the conference as good as it can be - register early! Early registration helps us to make sure we're getting all our figures right for running the conference, and you (the attendees) end up with a better event as a result.

Regular ticket

$100. Our basic ticket price remains the same as ever at one hundred dollars.

Unwaged / Student ticket

$60. For students and those of you not in employment, these tickets give you the full Kiwi PyCon experience at a more affordable price.

Contributor ticket

$300. This is our new tier this year, for those of you who can afford it -- perhaps your company is sending you? Contributor tickets help to fund Kiwi PyCon for everyone, they make it possible for us to offer more unwaged tickets to support students and others who need help to be able to attend. As a sign of our appreciation we will add your company name to your name tag (if you have one), and we will also put your name or your company logo on a special thank you page on kiwi.pycon.org.

Tutorials (Friday)

The tickets for the Friday tutorials will go on sale very soon, we're just hammering out a few extra details before we go live with them. We have four fantastic tutorials lined up this year, but spaces are very limited (16 attendees per session) so please do make sure you check back for more details as they get announced over the next few days - we'll do another post soon with some more information about the tutorial sessions, and a date and time that the ticket sales will go live (so you don't miss out).

In order to cover the room hire and projector hire charges for the tutorials this year, there will be a small cost to attend a tutorial ($15 per tutorial) separate from the main conference ticket prices.
