pretalx is open source software, which means you can host your own instance without paying a dime … apart from your time, and your nerves, and the server costs, that is.
You can instead choose to use our hosting service here at pretalx.com. This will allow you to get on with running your conference, while we look after all the day-to-day operations. We will take care of backups, certificates, the smooth running of all operations, frequent updates, and will be happy to assist you if you run into any problems.
Apart from our usual standard rate for events, we also offer a discount of up to 50% for community events. Community events are those events that don't aspire to make a profit, are run by community volunteers, and aren't backed by a company. If you consider yourself a community event, please contact us after creating your event.
