CppNorth is organized by a non-profit organization, so any speaker who can have their travel cost covered by their company is strongly encouraged to do that. Your employer will be listed as a travel sponsor if they do so. However, it is very important for us that anybody who could give a good talk will not be prevented for financial reasons, which is why we can help any selected speaker by covering the cost of the transportation and hotel.
Registrations for the conference is covered to the speakers!
Four nights of accommodation will be provided for speakers. Two additional nights will be covered for speakers who are also delivering a workshop. Speakers will be supplied with a special hotel reservation link.
For the transportation, depending on your location, we can give you a maximum expected budget that covers an economy class round-trip ticket and will reimburse you, or if preferred we will book a ticket for you. We support PayPal or Veem digital transfers. Baggage fee, seat selection fee or any other upgrades will not be covered by CppNorth. If you need something different for any reason, please contact us and we will discuss it on a case-by-case basis.
Speakers are encouraged to take UP Express from the airport to the Union station downtown Toronto. Omni King Edward Hotel is located a walking distance from the Union station. CppNorth will not be covering any cab expenses.
CppNorth will cover speaker's cost for the "Meet the Speakers Dinner". No cost will be covered for the "#include<C++> Dinner".
Please purchase CppNorth t-shirt if desired.
As a speaker, you will play a key role in how attendees enjoy their conference. That is why you will be held to a high standard regarding your language and behavior while on stage. No oppressive humor will be tolerated and we ask you to try your best to avoid vocabulary that can make part of the public feel ignored or excluded. If you have doubts about a joke or part of your talk and want to discuss it, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
