R conference Costs

Last year we gave you a price break down of some of the most popular R conferences around the globe for 2017. We’re going to do it again for 2018. Remember, you can
get up-to-date information on upcoming conferences via our GitHub page.

It’s important to note that these costs are the prices of an industry ticket for the conference only. If you caught the tickets on early bird and are an academic/student you could see these prices fall by over 50% in some cases. I’ll also mention extra pricing below.

Conference Cost ($) #Days Cost/Day
rstudio::conf 2019 795 2 398
eRum 2018 311 3 104
WhyR 2018 170 4 42
Earl London 2018 1170 3 390
satRday Amsterdam 2018 45 1 45
New York R 750 2 375

There’s quite a difference in the price per day. A simple bar plot will highlight this

Now, with add-ons it could have been a whole different story. For example, if you wanted to attend any of the 1 or 2-day workshops for rstudio::conf 2018 before the actual conference, you’re looking at adding an extra overall $995 – 1500. However, conferences like eRum and WhyR have no extra pricing.

Cost, but what about …

Clearly, the cost is only one of many factors used when deciding to attend a conference. Location, networking, date and speakers all play a part. In particular, we are planning on attending the rstudio::conf in 2020, even though it’s one of the more expensive events (but it looks fantastic!). In fact, next year the conference is in San Francisco (Jan 27-30th, 2020). The first 100 ticket purchasers will get the special price of $450!
