Frequently Asked Questions

How big will PodConf be?

Our goal is to keep PodConf "intimate" in nature...so we're capping attendance at 150 tickets. 

One of our core values is "connection", so we believe "smaller" industry events like this can better help facilitate social connections during and after the event! 

For reference, Google "Dunbar's Number". This theory states that 150 is the average number of stable social connections humans can make. 

When do the early-bird discounts end?

Ticket prices will increase soon, so you'll want to buy them now to get the best price.

Also, we're putting a cap to the total number of attendees...so get a ticket now before tickets completely sell out!

We're pushing hard to get everyone registered well before the event, so that we can make the event even better!

I don't have a podcast yet. Is this a good event for me?

Yes! One of our core values is to inspire new podcasters as well as support seasoned podcasters. It'll be an invaluable experience for you as you begin your podcasting journey. 

Can I buy tickets at the door?

We are capping the attendance at this event. So we recommend pre-purchasing your ticket, in case the event sells out. 

That said, if there are available seats left, we may sell them at the door, but at our most expensive price of $70 per ticket. 

Is food included in the ticket price?

We'll be providing coffee and pastries in the morning. 

I'm flying in for the event. Do you recommend a hotel?

The venue for this event is conveniently located in the central part of Portland, so any hotel in Downtown, the Pearl, South Waterfront, and Central Eastside will be mere minutes away from the venue. 

The Hotel Tonight app is a great option for finding some good deals! In April, there should be a lot of available rooms at great rates here in Portland...since you'll be beating the summer tourist season!

We'll be deep into Spring, so it's the perfect time to visit Portland!
