Hey hey! I am heading to Kraków this weekend for venues inspections, meetings with all suppliers and to put some bears in cages.

Prepping for the third iteration of SteemFest is well underway and with help of great sponsor's managed to get the plankton/minnow ticket price IMHO pretty affordable again. SteemFest is not an event for making profits, but an event for the community. Sponsorship funds go towards lowering the entrance fee for the plankton & minnow ticket, but I kindly ask you, if you have some Steem to spare, or did well last year's December (remember, remember those days in December?) to not abuse the plankton/minnow price and opt for a higher levelled ticket price closer to cost price.

Ticket price dynamic schedule - you know what price you get:

Last year 1/3rd of the bookings of the event came in the last 7 days prior to the event. That literally brought in unnecessary stress and costs because of last minute changes with catering and transportation logistics. If it is just up to me it is totally fine to book last minute, however the Chefs and such want to know prior to the event how much food they need to order :)

So this year, to force you into planning ahead, and hopefully preventing last-minute planning a dynamic schedule is implemented.

Current pricesfrom now to Friday 21st of September - 23:59 UTC Ticketshop
Increase 121 September - 19 October20% of costprice increase
Increase 219 October - 6 November20% of costprice increase
Walk up rate7 - 11 November20% of costprice increase

Please visit the completely updated SteemFest website which includes first program details, map of the venues, first speakers (many more to be announced) and links to the ticket shop / integral crypto ticket buy mechanism.

Btw. as a tradition, just like past 2 years, @knozaki2015 immediately when the shop opened. Pretty bold!

SteemFest tickets starting at € 277.77 until 21 september 2018

This year's minimum ticket price is a bit more expensive then last year, but still (IMHO) very attractively priced - The raise of € 66.66 - € 111.11 is due to forecasted & confirmed less sponsorship income, caused by bear markets.

That said, the 'Plankton Ticket' € 277.77 is priced at about 1/2 of the costprice of your attendance, thanks to the support of and the sponsorship of, @steemmonsters and @smooth, who like the idea to have an event to be as inclusive as possible. Please thank them! - @SteemFest is still open for sponsorships btw.

@T-R-F - Travel Relief fund for SteemFest go-ers

Be sure to also read more on the @t-r-f page about the Travel Reimbursement Fund, I've just donated 1000 Steem to that account which gets distributed after Kraków to all applying attendees. Anyone is free to donate some to this community driven travel fund dedicated to SteemFest go-ers.

What's included in this price:

  • opening drinks night
  • 2 days of conference incl lunch, dinner & drinks
  • 4 nights of social events
  • closing dinner incl unique tour
  • tbd some activities in the weekend
  • swag.
  • livestream & recording for people who can't make it

I kindly ask, if you can reasonably afford it to look into options of buying another 'Ticket Type', for example the 'Regular Ticket' priced at 100% of the cost price of your attendance or even higher levels. Check out the SteemFest site's ticket section to learn more about all ticket types. Note that all tickets are equal by means of what you can do with them. Everybody is a VIP, it is just a matter of how much you contribute towards the event.

Buy your ticket with crypto or fiat.

Like last year you can buy your ticket again with crypto. This year the options are SBD, Steem and BTS through SteemFest site's ticket section or with BTC, E-banking and Credit-cards via the SteemFest Paydro ticketshop

Manual Crypto Payments done through the SteemFest site in SBD / Steem / BTS are processed minimum every day at 10 AM CEST and 22 PM CEST by checking our email inbox and validating the incoming transfers on the @steemfest wallet (and the @steemfest wallet on Bitshares). Then we mail you a coupon code to claim your ticket. (you still need to claim your ticket after we mail you the couponcode!)
