jQuery Conference, Eventbrite fees

Some people might be aware that we are organising jQuery UK, Europe’s first jQuery conference.

This is the first major conference we have put on and it is a learning curve for all of us. We’ve had quite a lot of feedback on the fees that Eventbrite charge us for using their system and credit card processing, with a common comparison to Ryanair!

We had originally split these out from the main costs to try and be transparent over the true costs of the conference, and to keep it in line with similar conferences in the States. So the website said £150 + VAT, where in reality it was £150 + VAT + Booking fee … in retrospect, not a great move.

So we have made a modification to the price which means that the full price, including booking fee, is now £160 + VAT. We have to take a little bit of a hit on this, but this feels like the right thing to do. Thankfully, it seems, this mistake hasn’t impacted ticket sales which are surpassing our expectations for our first week.

Thanks all for the feedback and see you in February.
