OpenStack is a global community that has seen significant interest and traction in Asia, and we're excited to host the first official Summit outside of the US in the region.
The Summit will take place at Asia World Expo, a large convention center near the airport with a connecting Marriott hotel. The Airport Express train stops within Asia World Expo, making it convenient to access from most parts of the city. Please check the VISA information page and FAQ for more information about your travel plans. We encourage you to book early!
What's new? We're expecting 4000-5000 people to attend the Summit in November, so for the first time we're offering two types of passes. The General Session & Expo pass is valid for Tuesday and Wednesday only, and will get you into the General Session running all day (including Keynotes), access to the Expo Hall, lunch and snacks. The Full Access Pass is valid Tuesday through Friday, and will get you into the General Session, Expo Hall, lunch and snacks, plus all of the breakout sessions, workshops and the Summit bag/apparel giveaways.
We'll be posting links to registration, discounted hotel rates and the call for speakers in June, so please follow the OpenStack blog and twitter for more updates. Attendees may like to check out the Format and Pricing page to see which days to attend.
