> Dear FOSS4G enthusiast,
> It is with great honor and joy that we announce that the registration for FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest is open [1]! And more..
> We promised to do our best to make this global FOSS4G the most affordable of all times and we kept our word. Joining the geospatial international community for one week packed with dynamic, valuable, timely events in a vibrant European capital city is more at hand than ever before. The EarlyBird for FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest is at the historical level of 330 EUR and it offers you everything you could ever need for such a tech gathering:
> - Access to plenary session (28- 30 august)
> - Access to conference tracks (28- 30 august)
> - Access to 300+ talks
> - Access to mobile app
> - Ability to contact attendees
> - Access to Ice Breaker Party (29 august)
> - Access to Gala Dinner (29 august)
> - Access to Pub Race Offers (28-30 august)
> - Access to Academic papers post event
> - Access to presentations post event
> - Conference kit
> - Email support
> The #historicalearlybird registration is coupled with the unbelievable accessible accommodation and traveling expenses. Bucharest is a significant European traffic node and one of the low-cost favorite destination points, more than 70 airports have direct connections [2] with Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport (also check our CARTO interactive map with estimated prices [3]). Browsing through the accommodation page on the FOSS4G 2019 website [4], you’ll find all types, ranging from a wonderful downtown hostel with a sky bar to city center 5* hotels, we have special negotiated deals for any taste and wallet. Please be aware that, due to high demand, the special prices are available only until the end of January.
> Not convinced yet? To show our appreciation for our early participants, we have prepared 100 special T-shirts for the first 100 registered participants. Not convinced yet? Be among the first 100, and you will also receive the Romanian Curios Passport. Curious? Be among the first 100 registered participants.
> No FOSS4G would be possible without the valuable input of sponsors. They are the conference’s backbone contributing to the values, principles and progress of our community. Support us in our work to organize FOSS4G2019 Bucharest as one of the most memorable FOSS4G events. The call for sponsors is now open. Please, take a look at our suggestions [5] and find the one that best suits your needs and preferences.
> Sponsoring is not yet possible but you want to actively contribute to the success of FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest? Become a volunteer! Besides valuable input in making FOSS4G 2019 happen, you will receive a free ticket to the conference (including the ice breaker and gala dinner). Interested [6]?
> Sponsorship is not for you, neither volunteering but you still want to help FOSS4G 2019, then Spread the Word [7]!
> Yet of course, traveling to a FOSS4G is meeting the geospatial gurus, old friends and collaborators, making new friends, finding new opportunities and presenting your own work. Within the next week, another important call will open, the Call for Papers and Workshops. The committees are almost fully  formed and ready for action. We are honored to say that the FOSS4G 2019 program will be shaped by remarkable people in the geospatial international community. Check out the Committee webpage [8] to see who will review your FOSS4G 2019 contribution.
> In the weeks to come, important steps will follow, as opening the call for academic papers, announcing keynote speakers, so stay tuned [9][10][11]! We promise our #historicalearlybird will prove to be even more convincing, as FOSS4G2019 Bucharest wheels turn.
> With hope to see you all here in Bucharest, best wishes for a Happy New Year!
