Registration Information

PLEASE REVIEW THE HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES BEFORE REGISTERING TO ATTEND PYCON US.

You can access the registration page by logging into your PyCon US 2024 account and heading to your dashboard to register or view your existing registration. You will be able to add events or book your hotel if you choose not to do so during your initial registration.

PyCon US trusts you to self-select a fair registration rate:

  • Corporate Rate — If your company is paying for you to attend PyCon US, register at the corporate rate. You will help keep the conference affordable for everyone, especially students and those requiring a travel grant. Government employees should also register at the corporate rate.
  • Individual Rate — If you are paying for yourself to attend PyCon US, feel free to come as an individual. Employees of non-profits might also choose to register at the individual rate.
  • Student/Academic Rate — This rate is for full-time students and academics. If you are employed in a school or university, you qualify for this rate. However, if the funds available will allow for the Individual or Corporate rates, please select accordingly.
  • Online Rate — This year, we are again offering the online attendance option. This rate is for those who wish to attend PyCon US 2024 online only, to watch a live stream of the general sessions and talk tracks on the main conference days. Online registrants will access the PyCon US live stream through Hubilo. The live stream will take place on Eastern Standard Time/US see what time that is for you.

Note: The online option is for anyone who is not attending PyCon US in person and is only joining PyCon US Online via Hubilo for the live stream sessions. By popular demand, we are again including access to Hubilo and the live stream sessions during the main conference days with all in-person tickets as well. (In case e.g. you are attending in person but would like to watch an early talk from your hotel room, etc.)

What does my registration payment go towards?

Your registration payments help us keep PyCon US 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 travel grant program to those that need it.

Furthermore, the revenue that PyCon US generates is used to run the Python Software Foundation. The Python Software Foundation runs PyCon US, gives out over $300k in grants per year to Python groups around the world, houses critical community infrastructure such as PyPI and python.org, and launches programs like the CPython Developer in Residence. To read more about what the PSF does and its finances, check out the 2022 Annual Impact Report.

Visa Letters and International Travel

PyCon US can provide you with a “Visa Letter” or an “Invitation Letter” to support a United States visitor visa application. Visa letters can be requested once you have a fully paid and confirmed conference registration. The letter confirms that as a registered delegate, you are invited to attend by the Python Software Foundation (PSF) and the PyCon US 2024 Committee.

Invitation letters can be requested in lieu of a “Visa Letter” if you do not have a confirmed, paid conference registration and are still waiting to register for any reason at the time of your request. The letter serves as an invitation from the Python Software Foundation (PSF) and the PyCon US 2024 Committee to register for and attend the conference, but cannot confirm your participation.

Please fill out this form to request a Visa Letter or an Invitation Letter.

Hotel

Listed below are the hotels PyCon US has contracted special rates with. When you complete your registration for PyCon US 2024, you will be able to book your hotel reservation through our official housing bureau, Orchid Events.
