Convergence participants from around the world
The IPC is a truly global event with participation coming from at least 50 countries. Here is a snapshot analysis to give you a bit of a picture of who is going to be at the convergence. Next month we will show a similar break down for the conference.
400 people have already bought their tickets to the convergence, and they come from 6 continents: Africa (3%); Latin America (5%); Asia (7%), North America (10%), Australia & Aotearoa (9%); Europe (65%). Amongst the list of delegates are people from some countries that have never been into an IPC.
Whilst about two-thirds of people are coming from English-speaking countries (USA, Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand), the language group are working to come up with appropriate support so everyone can actively participate. (If you are attending and haven't already completed the survey about language support, found in your registration email, please do it soon).
We are still working hard to get more global participation: we expect a few hundred more bookings and we are exploring technologies for remote participation.
