What does my registration payment go towards? ----------------------------------------------------------------- Your registration payments help us keep PyCon registration tickets reasonably priced. Registration costs go towards offsetting costs for catering, audio visual, recording, internet, and other miscellaneous costs. By offsetting those costs, we can offer attendees reasonable registration rates and offer a financial aid program to those that need it. Furthermore, the revenue that PyCon generates is used to run the Python Software Foundation. The [Python Software Foundation]( runs PyCon, protects the Python trademark, gives out over $300k in grants per year, houses community infrastructure such as [PyPI]( and []( and employees 5 [employees]( The revenue from PyCon helps us support the community in all of those ways. Most importantly, the grants program has international reach and impacts individuals in 62 countries! What's Included? ----------------------- Conference registration includes a full breakfast, full lunch, and both morning and afternoon break refreshments on the three conference days Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (May 11-13, 2018). Tutorial attendees on the Wednesday and Thursday (before the main conference) will be provided with lunch and break refreshments. **Attendees pay per tutorial** for each tutorial class that they attend, and purchasing a tutorial by itself does not include admission to the main conference. Tutorial registration will open in early 2018. One tutorial will cost $150 and onsite, it will cost $200.
