I purchased a ticket. Where does my money go?
As a participant in many events, I sometimes wonder what is the final destination of the amount of money I am paying. Is it fully reinvested in the event? Is the money used for other purposes, elsewhere in the organization? Hard to guess.
Agile Zurich is a non-for-profit, community-driven association. We live the value of transparency, and therefore we want to make the exercise to openly share where we spend the money we collect from the participants and partners.
On one side, during the last days we have received some questions from people asking “But Why Is It So Cheap?”. And on the other side, we also announced that we are reducing the price of the tickets. You might be thinking, “why are you folks renouncing to earn more”? Simply: we don’t need the money. Our ultimate purpose is to serve the Swiss Agile community and allow everyone to participate, share and learn from each other in a caring environment.
On this page (Budget Transparency) you will be able to see where we spend the money from the event tickets and partnerships. We will be continuously updating the information with real numbers. And of course, questions are welcome!
If by the end of the event the balance is positive, once we’ve covered travel and accommodation costs of speakers, participants might even get some money back.
