If you’ve attended a conference before, you know that large, multi-day events can be quite costly. The reason for this is that organizing a conference is expensive. Offering attendees an unforgettable experience complete with expert speakers, a memorable after party, and good food comes with a hefty price tag.
At MongoDB, our goal is to host events that are accessible to our community members. We want you to be able to attend MongoDB World, learn, develop new ideas, and connect with other contributors. We realized that by offering tickets that cost more than $1,000, we excluded part of our community, individuals or companies who were unable to afford to pay this ticket price.
The content at our events is not just tailored towards developers who work at large corporations. It’s also crafted with the open source community in mind. This includes independent consultants, academics, and government organizations, who are often priced out of large conferences.
For this reason, we’re excited to announce that we’ve created an accessible pricing model for MongoDB World 2017. You can now attend our annual two-day conference for as low as $224.25! The earlier you book, the lower your price. If you wait, a general admission ticket will still only cost you $499.
With this new pricing we hope MongoDB World 2017 will be accessible to more people in the community, whether they are students, freelancers, or startup and nonprofit employees. Even at a new price point we’ll still bring you a high-quality, community-centric conference, loaded with education, networking, and yes – an unforgettable after party.
Can’t wait to see you in Chicago on June 20-21!
