Crowdfunding

This PgDay is a non-profit community-run event, organized by pro-bono volunteers, and we want to produce a professional level conference for Argentina and Latin America.

We are organizing a collective fundraising as we need to collect funds to cover the following additional expenses (at least):

  • Financial Aid for regional speakers: ARS $ 2500 (~ USD $416)
  • Professional A/V recording in HD and edition: ARS $ 4000 (~ USD $666)
  • Catering (coffee breaks): ARS $ 2250 (~ USD $375)
  • Other expenses (printed program, banners, badges, etc.): ARS $ 1250 (~ USD $208)

The initial goal is ARS $10.000 (around USD $2000.-), although the event will be held even if we cannot raise that amount, as much we can collect, better ammenities will be possible for the attendees, and high quality videos could be available for those that cannot attend. If we can collect a higher amount, that will be used exclusively to enhance the event and produce merchandising about PostgreSQL.

Thanks to Argentina's Digital Agenda government support, we don't have to cover venue expenses (around ARS $12000), and thanks to 2ndQuadrant that kindly covered the travel expenses of their international speakers.

Please Remember: This PgDay is one of the largest yearly gatherings about PostgreSQL for Spanish speakers in the region. Attendance is free of charge (no cost registration), so we try to keep costs far cheaper than most comparable technology conferences, to keep this PgDay accessible to the widest group possible.
