Why Charge for an Online Conference?

Revenue from the event will go to PyData and NumFOCUS, a nonprofit organization that supports open source scientific computer programming. NumFOCUS currently sponsors 43 Open Source Projects, and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools. 

While the 2021 PyData Global Conference has no costs for venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. We also need to continue paying fixed costs to keep NumFOCUS healthy, as well as continue supporting the open source community.

For this reason, we have chosen to sell tickets with a pay-what-you-can pricing model. We appreciate your support for us during this time so that we can keep supporting you in the future.

``In a time when in-person conferences moved online merely due to the circumstances, PyDataGlobal'20 fully embraced this new medium with a well thought-out schedule and a platform that enabled networking and idea-sharing among a diverse set of participants from across the globe. ...being a frequent user of the data science stack, I know my ticket will help make it even better while keeping it open source and available to all.``

``As an academic data scientist, what I like most about the PyData Conferences is first, the possibility to learn a lot about (new) tools and their efficient usage and second, the amazing intros to research directions beside my own field. So far, I returned from every conference, with inspiring ideas and many relevant hints where to look for more high-quality information.``
