Blender Conferences are great events, a real highlight of the year for many people. This is because the conference attracts wonderful visitors and presenters from all over the world, but also because of the quality of the conference venue and the organization.

The Foundation and Institute have always sponsored the conference substantially in the past. The past few years this was getting a bit out of control... it is time to adjust the prices to reflect the economic reality. We will also invest more in streams and recordings this year.

We also welcome conference sponsors. For the 2016 edition we will make a sponsor prospectus, please contact us for it.
