I just wanted to share four things I recently learned about the upcoming Bluetooth World 2017 event (March 28-29, 2017 in Santa Clara, California).
This will be my first time attending the event, but from what I remember, last year the fee to attend was a bit on the high side (close to $1,000). This year, however, things are changing…
After registering for the event, I received an email from the new group organizing the event this year asking if they could arrange a phone to let me know about what’s new about the event this year. After talking with them, I learned a few things about the event that I thought would be worth sharing:
- The cost to attend all the sessions this year is only $50! pair that with booking a place through Airbnb and using points for booking a flight and you have a very affordable business trip 🙂
- If you are not interested in attending the Keynote sessions and Developer workshops, then you can register for FREE.
- The event this year will be more tailored to developers and a focus on more technical sessions (being an engineer myself, I was very excited to learn about this!)
- If you’re a startup and looking to exhibit at the event, I think the cost is around $2,000 which includes some extras and a couple of passes.
That’s all for now.. If you are planning on attending the event, let me know – I’d love to connect with you in person!
