Fronteers 2009: many speakers, no tickets

Now follows the most anti-climactic speaker announcement ever. We’ve got tons of new excellent speakers to announce for Fronteers 2009, such as Dion and Ben from Ajaxian, Chris Heilmann, Pete LePage, and Stephen Hay, but we’re about sold out. If you don’t have a ticket already you can’t come and see them.

The full list of Fronteers 2009 speakers has been published, and as you can see this promises to be quite a conference. I like the line-up, if I may say so myself.

We’re almost sold out. Currently ticket sale has been halted while we figure out exactly how many tickets we can still sell. We expect a very few tickets (less than 10) to be released somewhere next week. When these are gone we’re completely sold out. Price is € 350, there are no more discounts, and there is no way of reserving tickets beforehand.

The release will be announced at our @fronteers09 Twitter feed first.

I hope to meet some of my readers at Fronteers 2009.

Meanwhile, if you don’t have a Fronteers ticket but still want to see Chris Heilmann or me speak, as well as a load of other JavaScript people, head over to Brighton to Full Frontal. 20 November, ticket is £ 100 now.

Why exactly did you chose to keep the complete list revealed for so long? I find it kind of hard to explain to my manager why I have to go to such an event (other than sheer FUN) when I can't even tell him who will be speaking.

Because of marketing. It's wonderful to have four or five moments you can draw attention to the conference because you can announce more speakers.

That makes sense, though the necessity of such moments is doubtful if there are no more tickets to sell. I hope the planning will be adjusted to take this into account next year.

Congratulations with this great line up! Incredible how you managed to organize everything.

I can't be there though. May be next year.

@Joris: that is, _if_ we find the volunteers for it next year.
