Could you host DjangoCon Europe 2017?
DjangoCon Europe 2016 starts in less than a month, but we're already looking ahead to next year's conference. Could your town - or your football stadium, circus tent, private island or city hall - host this wonderful community event?
Hosting a DjangoCon is an ambitious undertaking. It's hard work, but each year it has been successfully run by a team of community volunteers, not all of whom have had previous experience - more important is enthusiasm, organisational skills, the ability to plan and manage budgets, time and people - and plenty of time to invest in the project.
You'll find plenty of support on offer from previous DjangoCon organisers, so you won't be on your own.
How to apply
If you're interested, we'd love to hear from you. Following established tradition, the selected hosts will be announced at this year's DjangoCon by last year's organisers, so we'll need to receive your proposal before then.
The more detailed and complete your proposal, the better. Things you should consider, and that we'd like to know about, are:
- numbers of attendees
- transport links
- budgets and ticket prices
- committee members
We'd like to see:
- draft agreements with providers
- alternatives you have considered
They will all help show that your plans are serious and thorough, and that you have the organisational capacity to make it a success.
Just drop us a line.
