The Professional rate is the standard conference rate. This rate applies to most people who have their employers pay the conference fees and charge it as a professional development expense, or for individuals who can legitimately claim it is a tax deduction. The benefits of a Professional registration include recognition of your employer on your conference badge, extra goodies in the swag bag and a listing as a Professional Delegate in our delegate's directory.


The Enthusiast rate is heavily discounted for Python enthusiasts who are paying out of their own pockets and would otherwise find it difficult to attend.


This concession rate is reserved for College (TAFE, Polytechnic, Senior Secondary, etc) or University Students. PyCon Australia offers this rate as a form of investment in the future of the Python programming community. As part of the registration process, a valid student ID card or proof of enrolment must be presented to the onsite registration desk. Any Student who cannot provide this will be required to register at PyCon Australia 2012 as an enthusiast by paying the difference in fees between the Student rate and the Enthusiast rate.


There are a limited number of Media Passes available to media personnel. Media Passes are free of charge, and entitle media personnel to attend PyCon Australia 2012 with all the entitlements of a Professional registration. Please note, due to the limited numbers of Media Passes available, all Media Passes will need to be approved by the PyCon Australia 2012 Organisers.

To apply for a Media Pass, please contact contact@pycon-au.org.


For PyCon Australia 2012, we have accommodation options that are formally associated with the conference itself. Please see the accommodation page for more information.
