We are happy to announce that we have started the RFP for venues to host the EuroPython 2019 conference.
We have sent out the details to almost 40 venues.
Unlike last year, we also want to give the chance to other venues who were not on our list to participate in the RFP. For this purpose, we are making the details available in this blog post as well.
The EuroPython Society is the organization behind the EuroPython conference, is the largest Python programming language conference in Europe, with more than 1100 professionals from IT, science and educational fields attending to learn about new developments, network and learn from experience of others in the field.
Python is a very popular open source programming language, with a large following in the web development and data science fields (see http://python.org/ for details).
EuroPython was initiated in 2002, with the first conference in Charleroi, Belgium, and has since toured Europe for a total of 17 editions so far. For EuroPython 2019 we are looking for a new location and venue and are reaching out to potential venues we have identified to participate in an RFP selection process.
If you’d like to participate in this process, please have a look at the RFP spreadsheet in form of an Excel spreadsheet with a list of questions and our EuroPython 2017 sponsor brochure with more details about the conference, the demographics and our offerings for sponsors, to give you an idea of what we are looking for.
Please see the first tab in the spreadsheet for a description of the the submission process. If you have questions, please write to email@example.com. Please also check our answers to the first round RFP vendor questions.
