PyCon US 2013: This is the last week for Sponsor sign ups to include booths!

How time flies.

It seems like only yesterday I was announcing that PyCon 2012 was getting close - well, PyCon 2013 is less than three months away - that's right, March is coming!

We've once again packed the house with an amazing selection of talkstutorials - sponsor workshops are coming, and so much more. We've also gotten an amazing amount of sponsors and supporters for the conference - so much in fact that we're looking at once again filling the expo hall which we actually expanded this year!

That's why I'm announcing that this is the last week (you have until this time, next Wednesday the 9th) for new sponsors to sign up to support PyCon and still get expo hall booths - we may still have room for the jobs fair running Sunday, but after next wednesday booths for the expo hall (thursday evening through saturday) will be removed from the prospectus. 

As always, we will negotiate packages without booths after this cutoff with all companies wanting to be part of PyCon as we did last year - this includes additional passes or other discounts as needed. 

If you are interested in taking part - be quick - check out our sponsor prospectus, and drop an email to jnoller@gmail.com

Also, if you intend on registering for the conference and the tutorials: I'd recommend doing so ASAP; we are hard-limited to 2500 attendees, and registrations are going fast.

I look forward to seeing you in cough 10 weeks.

PyCon 2020-2021 Location

Now that registration and planning are well underway for PyCon 2019 in Cleveland, the PSF is pleased to announce that the home for PyCon 2020 and 2021 will be Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

The conference will be held in the beautiful David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 15-23, 2020 and May 12-20, 2021.


The Steel City is built around the convergence of the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers and offers an understated mix of arts, culture, and technology. Join the Pittsburgh Python User Group for a meetup, eat dinner in a converted train station at the Grand Concourse, take a century-old cable car up the Duquesne Incline to see stunning views of the city, or visit the Robot Hall of Fame at the Carnegie Science Center's roboworld® exhibit. While you're out and about, see if you can count all 446 bridges in the city (that's more than you'll find in Venice, Italy)!

In Pittsburgh, you'll find that the residents are all neighbors. And with 90 unique neighborhoods tha…

PyLadies is an international mentorship community for women that use Python.

PyCon 2018’s auction was a huge success raising over $30K! More than 40 items from sponsors and fellow attendees were auctioned. Attendance was overwhelming and, rather than turn more people away for 2019, we have decided to increase capacity this year!

The PSF subsidizes this event each year by covering the cost of the venue, food, and beverages. In addition, the PSF adds a substantial donation to the event after everything is auctioned o…
