For those of you who have experienced Devcon in the past and are looking forward to this year’s event, it should be the best one to date! This year, we have dedicated convention center space that has been scaled up three times since the conference was very first sold out in July. Due to successfully enhancing the event capacity over the last three months, we were able to release passes to many if not most waitlisted requestors.
Thanks to our amazing and resilient community and an abundance of enthusiasm, Devcon3 has two and a half times the number of attendees as last year. And the added Breakout Hall has enabled Devcon3 to include many extra presentations.
The Foundation is pleased to proceed to provide the main developers conference in the Ethereum space for a community that stands out for its collective vision and involvement in community-driven open source projects and beyond.
This year, Devcon3 has reached out to more Ethereum community developers, students and university people than ever before. Additionally, the participant demographic is also the most international and globally diverse one to date.
As a developers conference, Ethereum Foundation’s Devcon event and agenda is designed to help inform, educate and address interests of the Ethereum R&D community, including those who are learning about the technology and projects supported by the Foundation as well as ones undertaken in the greater development community. While the Devcon program is technical by nature, all who wish to attend are welcome!
devcon3 | passes sold out (!)
Tickets for Devcon3 were downright sold out on July Ten. In order to accommodate as much of the overflow as possible, we scaled up the event three times since that time.
Devcon3 venue location
Boulevard Kukulcán KM. 9 1er Piso, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico
The Cancún ICC is located in the heart of the Hotel Zone (Zona Hoteleras).
Travel and Accommodations
If you will be searching for your own lodging, the area in Cancún is typically referred to as “Hotel Zone” and/or “Convention Center” on travel booking sites.
Preferred lodging and accommodation rates near the convention center that were provided to requestors may still be available. However, better rates may be found on the web as hotel rates fluctuate daily and the commence of display nears.
Note: the Mexican national holiday “El Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead), is observed on November 1 & Two this year. As there is enhanced domestic travel to holiday destinations in Mexico, it is suggested Devcon3 attendees arrange for travel and accommodations well in advance.

Devcon3 program and presenters
We are pleased we were able to include so many or our peers and colleagues in this year’s agenda to join us in presenting and discussing Ethereum R&D.
Special thanks to the researchers and university people who submitted presentation proposals this year. It is encouraging and inspiring to see the R&D efforts expand in scope, depth and comprehensiveness.
