360|Conferences has never existed to make tons of money. That’s not why I started the company and not why I keep doing it.
If you’ve attended more than one 360|iDev you know of the ups and downs I’ve faced in being this focal point for our community. You also know that 360|Conferences is my sole income, it’s not a side gig or hobby… In the interest of transparency here’s the deal.
360|Conferences exists to bring people together. To help people grow through learning new things and sharing. To help people break out of their shells. Most importantly 360|Conferences exists to support and encourage our community.
We’re all afraid right now, rightfully so. No one is thinking about conferences four to six months from now when next week feels so uncertain. I get it.
Here’s the thing. I can’t be here in four to six months to be there for the community, to help us rally and grow, without your support now.
Conferences don’t leave a lot of money for cushions. Ticket sales and sponsorships selling throughout the year keep me afloat, and that’s not happening right now.
So I need your help. There are two options.
Buy a ticket to 360|iDev 2020. If you don’t feel comfortable coming in August or we’re unable to do the conference, turn it into your 360|iDev 2021 ticket (Or get a refund down the road). I’ve extended early bird pricing until 5/29.
Not ready or able to commit, but want to support 360|Conferences? Donate whatever you’re able to. Seriously anything helps.
I didn’t get into conferences for fame or recognition. I love seeing the community come together because when we do, awesome stuff happens. I can’t wait to see you all again as soon as possible.
