I was pretty surprised, when I went to Registration & Pricing area dedicated to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. New York 2009 show. The prices of TRAFFIC went down! Now I also see that I got email from Rick with new pricing details.
You probably remember recent message from Rick Schwartz titled: “The Future of TRAFFIC” – it was about pricing and activities included in the show. Rick asked if he should lower the attendance fee but lower number of meals, drinks etc. in the same time. The answer seems to be YES.
You can get your tickets for $895 and only $199 for spouse pass, which is really LOW I have to admit. The early bird prices are valid until June 30th or 100 tickets sold. I only hope that the value of TRAFFIC itself will not go down despite the price drop. TRAFFIC was my first big domain conference (after DomainChannel in London few weeks before TRAFFIC conference in Las Vegas in 2007) and I had learned A LOT at each of the shows. The last one was quite different from the others, because it was mainly dedicated to ccTLDs. I will post more about TRAFFIC ccTLDs in Amsterdam soon.
Good luck Rick and Howard with increasing attendance at TRAFFIC! It was a very good decision to lower the prices and I hope to see the New York show in 2009 similar to the one in 2007. The more people at the conference – the more business going on and more things happening :)
