Want to host DjangoCon Europe 2024?
DjangoCon Europe 2023 will be held May 29th-June 2nd in Edinburgh, Scotland, 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 the established tradition, the selected hosts will be announced at this year's DjangoCon by last year's organiser but must fall more than one month from DjangoCon US and PyCon US, and EuroPython in the same calendar year. In order to make the announcement at DjangoCon Europe we will need to receive your proposal by May 10.
The more detailed and complete your proposal, the better. Things you should consider, and that we'd like to know about, are:
- dates Ideally between mid May and mid June 2024
- numbers of attendees
- transport links
- budgets and ticket prices
- committee members
We'd like to see:
- draft agreements with providers
- alternatives you have considered
Email you proposals to djangocon-europe-2024-proposals at djangoproject dot com. They will all help show that your plans are serious and thorough and that you have the organisational capacity to make it a success.
