How many attendees will there be at Drupalcon Denver?

Submitted by greggles on Fri, 2012-01-13 10:26

Drupalcon is the main event for anyone working with or wanting to learn Drupal. Held periodically in locations around the world, the next Drupalcon will be Drupalcon Denver.

Previous events:

  • Washington D.C.: 1,400 people
  • San Francisco in 2010: 3,000 people
  • Chicago in 2011: 3,000 people

As of January 2012, there are 550 tickets sold. Drupalcon Chicago was at about 1,000 tickets mid-January but they had early bird pricing that expired in January and their conference was 2 weeks earlier than Drupalcon Denver.

Drupalcon Denver's early bird pricing is a smaller bump (only $50) and is not until February. What will the total attendance in Denver be?

  • Denver's airport is fairly large
  • Denver's hotels are cheaper than Chicago or SF, but the ticket price is the same as Chicago (which was roughly the same as SF if you compare tickets that included meals)
  • The population of Denver/Colorado is smaller than SF or Chicago
  • 25% of the attendees at SF were from within 75 miles
  • Over 25% of the attendees at Chicago were from "nearby" (i.e. neighboring states)

Where will attendance be this year?

Less than 2,500: 8%. Bet $1 to win $11.5
2,501 to 3,000: 16%. Bet $1 to win $5.25
3,001 to 3,500: 52%. Bet $1 to win $0.92
Greater than 3,501: 24%. Bet $1 to win $3.17
