Hi,

Upon looking at the conference area, I just noticed that there seems to be a bit of a major difference in the offers of membership included in some of the conference registration fees.

For example, the upcoming conference in which I am interested (in Barcelona), though it is only for a day and it costs just as much as some of the other conferences for two days, only offers 3 months of membership, while most of the other current and past conferences offer 6 months of membership.

Is there a specific reason for this difference? Would it be possible that all conferences included the same offer of membership months in the registration fee?

On the other hand, I have a suggestion about conferences: create a forum for this category, in the Proz.com forum area, since I think this is becoming a very important activity area of this website.

Kind regards,

Ivette

Membership offered with Early bird and regular prices Sep 19, 2008

Hi Ivette,

The Early bird conference prices come with six months of membership; once the Early bird promotion ends and the regular conference price begins, the membership included in the package is for three months.

Separate forums for conferences is an interesting idea. At the moment, threads to talk about the specific conferences have in some cases been opened by the conference organizers, in the language forum for the region involved. I don't see one for the Barcelona conference, but you are more than welcome to start a thread for it in the Spanish forum, for example. Thanks!

Best regards,

Jared

I'm definitely not an early bird (I normally start working at 10:00 a.m.), so it's no wonder I missed this . Thanks for explaining.

As it usually happens in my case when the last quarter of the year begins, I'm really in multi-tasking mode, so I really have limited time right now, but I am sure maybe some of the actual participants in the Barcelona conference may read this and start the thread. I will seriously consider attending, in spite of having missed the early bird price.

Cheers,

Ivette
