Three Days to Register
If you’ve ever attended a I/O event, you’ll understand why the registration process is such a hot topic. Prior to 2014, you set your alarm for 5am and hoped you could get through the ticket-buying process before the system froze or booted you out. In 2012 tickets were sold out in 20 minutes. The 2015 Google I/O registration dates have been officially announced. Read on to get tips on how best to secure this coveted event ticket.
How the 2015 Google I/O Registration Process Works
Between March 17 9am (PDT) and March 19 5pm, you can register for the 2015 lottery. You’ll sign into your Google account and complete the registration form — including payment (a hold will be placed on the funds). Tickets are $900 a piece, unless you’re a full-time student where it’s steeply discounted to only $300. By the way, attendees must be at least 15 years old; if you’re 15-17, you’ll need a parental consent form. For more answers to your questions, check out the FAQ session on the 2015 I/O website.
8th Annual Google-Palooza Tips
The first Google I/O was held back in 2008 (check out the session slides). The event is meant to bring together developers, sharing the latest information and unveil new products. Typically there’s swag (last year they gave away Android Wear smartwatches).
Most likely you are a power user of Google products. So knowing your Google account sign-in is pretty basic. I’ve set up Google Wallet to make it super easy to pay for my ticket. Note: you won’t be able to change your registration information once submitted. So register with a name that matches your official photo ID (you’ll need that when checking into the conference). Your ticket is good for the two-day event and you won’t be able to transfer or sell it.
Last, but not least, make sure you can make it to San Francisco’s Moscone West Convention Center on May 28 and 29.
Last year my name wasn’t chosen in the lottery. Hopefully I’m luckier for the 2015 Google I/O! Will you register?
