Fairy penguin sponsorship

We have introduced a 'Sponsor' level registration category. The Fairy Penguin sponsorship is designed for those who wish to attend the conference as a Professional delegate and make a supporting contribution to the conference. In recognition of this support Fairy penguin sponsors get their logo and a link on our sponsors page, a note in the conference booklet, and a table at Open Day. Simply register as a Fairy Penguin, or email sponsors@mel8ourne.org for more information. Fairy Penguin Sponsorship packages start at $1,500.00 plus GST.


The Professional rate is the standard conference rate. Most people have their companies pay for conference fees and charge it as a training or education expense, or for individuals who can legitimately claim it is a tax deduction.The benefits of a Professional registration include Professional Delegates Networking Session (people networking, not TCP/IP), Extra Goodies, and a Listing in the conference booklet.


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


This concession rate is reserved for Students, and their attendance is subsidised to some extent by professional registrations. The conference offers this rate as a form of investment in the future of the Australian free and open source software community. When arriving at the conference checkin desk a valid student card or proof of enrolment must be presented, or the difference between Student and Hobbyist paid.  


Please see the accommodation page for details about the various options that are available.
