wounded in the line of duty
While not a tech conference, I presented at CONduit last year and got a nice $20 discount getting in. Note that I had 2 presentations and they charged $60 (without the discount). Start including the hotel room and it got expensive.
A lot of places figure you'll show up and present for the publicity alone. They're expecting you'll pay to "advertise" at their convention. While that works for some people, I found it somewhat insulting. After all, I'm supposedly there to add reason for others to come. The previous time I'd given these presentations they were literally lining the walls and sitting in the isles. That time I paid for the honor of 10 people scattered in a giant room.
