In an attempt to minimise the drop-outs this year we are going to be charging a small fee of £10 for an attendee ticket.
After viewing the success of small charges and the positive effect on the dreaded “no-show” rates associated with conferences, we are introducing this small charge to help ensure that those that make BSides events so awesome get the opportunity to attend.
But But But…
We don’t believe this charge should be a barrier to attendance, so please don’t feel like you can’t attend just because of the ticket price, if you would genuinely find it difficult to pay £10 then reach out during a ticket release window via contact @ bsidesbelfast[.]org and we’ll see what we can do to get you going.
What will the money be used for?
The fee that we are charging is not for profit and any income generated from these ticket sales will be split between charity and the after party, the nominated charity will probably be local and techie but we’ve not yet decided on who!
Look forward to seeing you all at this years BSides Belfast, we are aiming for the first batch to be released on the 1st June 2018.
