Drupal Association blog: Help Support the Drupal Association: Stay at Official DrupalCon Hotels

Drupal CMS

With DrupalCon North America coming up in two months, now is the time to make arrangements for your stay in beautiful Portland, Oregon!

When you’re booking your hotel, we ask you to book through the official DrupalCon Hotel Portal.

When the Drupal Association signed contracts for our forthcoming conferences in 2019, we contractually guaranteed a minimum amount of rooms sold. This means that if the room blocks do not meet a certain amount of room-nights sold, we are financially responsible for the difference. Because of lesser expected attendance (as a result of COVID), it’s not guaranteed we will meet these contractual minimums.

By booking through the DrupalCon Hotel Portal, you can help us avoid paying the difference, which will enable more funding for Drupal infrastructure such as the Gitlab migration and Drupal.org improvements.

In addition to helping out the Drupal Association, booking through the portal means

Guaranteed lowest prices for these hotels. In fact, if you find a lower price anywhere else, screenshot it and send it over to us (along with a link).
You stay in the hotel filled with other Drupal friends from around the world, filled with lively conversations in the hallways and lobbies.
You’re physically closer to the convention center!

Thank you for reading, and we’re looking forward to seeing you in Portland this April!
