I had a weird feeling that the registration to Szeged Drupalcon is lower than before.
At the time of writing these lines, we're about 7 weeks away from the conference, and with high expectations, left by the successful Drupalcon in Boston (864 registered and paid attendees), the number of registered attendees to Szeged, is 352.
Having set the high threshold of +1000 attendees, this number seems a bit low.
I wanted to see where registration to Boston was, about the same time before the conference. It appears that actually the registration pace to Szeged is much higher than to both Drupalcons before!
At the end of January 2008, just a month before Boston Drupalcon, Jeff Whatcott announced that ~225 registered to Boston. This puts the registration to Szeged in an even better place, with higher registration, longer before Drupalcon.
But let us not count on statistics. Drupalcon should be marketed more than it is now. You can place some banners in your websites, blog about it, and convince others that Drupalcon is good for them. Propose interesting sessions, and experience the cool registration process.
If the Drupalcon in Szeged will be as good as it's wonderful website, then it will, without doubt, be an amazing event to attend in.
