Hello,
I registered earlier today when the early bird offer was on, though soon after I was told there were no more places. Now it seems that a few places have been added but the price has gone up by €3.

22 euro now !Nov 29, 2012

Hi,

Now I can see : price : 22 €, i.e. a little more than USD 28.4 !!

I have the feeling of being on a wellknown online auction websiteicon_biggrin.gif

It is somewhat unfortunate.

EUR 22. Has the pricing scheme of low-cost airlines been adapted?

eProz-bay?Nov 29, 2012

Indeed. As there were 5 places (now 2) remaining, the price went up to $28...
I don't mind a different price applying to non-member (that's usual practice) but at least,
members should benefit from one basic price, whether or not 30 or 2 places remain.

Edited to add:
Besides, considering this is an interactive training, it might be much more profitable - both for Proz and to members - to organize 2 or 3 smaller groups and successive or different day presentations, than that huge 110 people group.

Price has increased overtimeNov 29, 2012

Hi all,

Like in other training sessions or events, those that purchase their seats earlier get an "early bird" or cheaper price, and those that purchase later or last minute, get to pay a higher price. We also apply a price increase based on the number of registrants in a course ie. the first 15 pay one price, the next 10 pay another price etc.

In this case the price has slightly increased several times since the date when it was announced to now that we are closer to the date and we have more than 100 paid. We always advice to secure your seat in advance if you are interested in a course. In this way you get to secure your seat, pay a lower price, and also we get to know in advance if the minimum required to run the course is reached - unfortunately, sometimes we are forced to cancel or reschedule a course if just very few express interest in advance.

Hope this answers your question.

Regards,

Soledad

From 12 to 32 USDNov 30, 2012

The price I see is 32 USD, though it's still like 3 weeks before the seminar. Your price changed from 12 to 32 USD. Which is kind of unfriendly:(
