You'll notice something different about BlogHer '10 registration. We are, for the first time, introducing tiered pricing. As you all probably know by now, BlogHer has featured the same $99/day earlybird pricing since 2005. Even as the cost and production values and size of the conference have soared. How we do that is thanks to our much-appreciated sponsors. But it does mean that we can't always let in as many people as we want to.
We want to still keep that low, grassroots pricing for the bulk of you who attend. Those of you who do this for love and passion, but who can't tax-deduct your trip, or expense it to a company getting a lot of promotional or educational bang for their attendance buck. Those of you who meet that description, you get the Blogger Rate.
For those of you who do this for love and passion...and for a paycheck...those of you who can expense or deduct this trip, we ask you to please register for the Company Rate.
This will enable us to accommodate higher capacity right from the outset. We did get almost 300 people in off the waitlist this year, but I'm sure they all would have rather been able to buy a ticket without the wait :)
BlogHer has always been about the spirit of volunteerism, pitching in, keeping this the "conference the community built", even in our sixth year. We know that the community will approach this experiment in tiered pricing with the same spirit.
We're excited to have such a head start on Blogher '10. We have a full year to make it bigger and better than ever!
And we hope a new bunch of East Coasters will finally be able to join us at the annual conference!
