Google Announces March 13 as Google I/O Registration Day (Update: Pricing Added)


Google just dropped the 2013 Google I/O registration date as March 13 at 7AM. Like last year, attendees will have to pay for their tickets using a Google+ and Google Wallet account, so make sure to get those set up if you intend on going. And as always, expect tickets to sell out within the first 5 minutes.

Update:  Google also threw out pricing details on their G+ page.

Registration will open on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 7:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and will remain open until tickets are sold out. Based on demand in previous years, we expect to sell out quickly. Just like last year, ticket prices will be USD $900 for general attendees and $300 for academic attendees, and you’ll need a Google+ account and a Google Wallet buyer account to register.

Let the hypebeasting begin!

    can anybody tell me that we need google + and google wallet to buy ticket?.. how to use google wallet to buy ticket?? any step by step guide..also at the time of registration you need to have your student id and letter? to register for academic ticket

  • ChristianJohnson

    May sound like a dumb question, but do you have to be a developer to buy a ticket for Google I/O? Even if you’re a student?

  • Crankintopwater69

    DARN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,Just purchased 3N4’s.On street corner now with sign,”Will work for money.”lol!!!

  • Larizard

    So I’m guessing there will be lots of gradients in I/O this year.

  • Question, do you guys know if academic attendees will get the same freebies as the general attendees? At least how was it last year?

    • Doug Blatti

      they were not treated any diffetent last year

  • shamu11

    can an academic institution be a high school?

  • This is a developer’s conference that allows some press passes. Simply put, if you’re not a developer or press with access, you have no business being there. Please don’t take a spot away from a developer who would love to go and learn just because you think you deserve some free stuff.

    • lol…My dog died today please dont go(insert sad face). Stop complaining man you sound like a wanna be developer who got his feeling hurt cause he couldnt go last year. Lets be clear, I am a real life developer(in training). even if a normal fan was to buy a ticket, add hotel stay, flight, food, and dont forget spending money. A buddy of mine went last year and easily spent $2000 in total. Add up all the swag and tell me how much money he saved????

    Hmmm I smell Droid Life Fan Appreciation Contest, ‘Win a free ticket to Google I/O and hang with the Droid Life team for the entire event :)”

  • Andrew Remmers

    So how do we prove we are students?

  • 300 sounds great~!

  • silvawhishaws

    X Debbie 😉

  • tyguy829

    Do high school students qualify for the academic price or just college students? (i have a .edu email and a school id)

  • Austin Warren

    So glad I’m a student and only $300!

  • Alexander Garcia

    For some reason I was unreasonably excited about this little bit of news. Haha. Can’t wait to see what Google has in store for us this year. =)

  • “Proof of enrollment or employment at an academic institution will be required for entry into the conference. There will be a limited number of Academic tickets available.” -GoogleIO 2012 Registration was $900/300 as well.

  • mustbepbs

    Man the $900 is so worth it with all of the free stuff you get.

  • Travisty

    I’m tempted to sign up for community college classes just to get that $600 discount, hmmm

    • Austin Warren

      Lol they will probably have to make sure you paid for the classes and what not before they allow that.

  • Diablo81588

    They better be giving out free bees at that price lol

    • jonsey

      Ya knowledge…

    • kidtronic

      …what would you do with bees?

      • Diablo81588


  • I really want to go this year. I am going to try and get a ticket. Oh yea, and I only pay $300.

  • Butters619

    I need to go back to school just so I can get the discount!

    /flawed math

  • What are the requirements for the student tickets?

  • Diego Diaz

    Prices will be like last year. $900 for all and $300 for academia. It is on Google Developers G+ Page

    • MJZ

      3 more words: Gimme Free Stuff!

      • COWBOY1999

        right now!!!

      • Steve Hawk

        I don’t really think you can consider it “Free Stuff” when you paid $900 to get in to the event.

      • jonesy

        This is why I would rather they not give out nice swag, draws in all of those who could otherwise care less about development and related advances.

  • Dan


    • No word yet on prices. Probably something like last year. $1000+

  • Greg Morgan

    Anyone know how much tickets usually go for?

    • Adam Neighbors

      Last year they were $900, which is double the year before.

    • Justin Winker

      Last year, I believe they were about $1300. I think for students, though, there was a significant discount (it was either a total of $900 or $900 off, I’m not sure, though). I would love to attend this, though I have no need to since I don’t really develop anything. It would be a great experience!

      • Greg Morgan

        Ok, well that puts a quick end to that thought…lol

    • cortesjues

      This year its $900 for developers and $300 for students

  • Cory Smith

    think you meant “if you plan on going” 😛

    • Hitler

      or “intend”.

  • *intend

    • That’s funny, because I had written it as “if you attend on attending” then somehow figured that sounded weird. lol

      Thanks! 😛

      • 1bad69z28

        Tim DUDE!!! You SO Owe a meet up for a free beers, if its here in Mountain View lol 🙂

  • bakdroid

    X-Phone! X-Tablet! KLP!

    • Guest

      I was thinking of going this year but I’m not sure where it will take place. I have an airfare credit I could use but I’d want to book early. Anyone know what city it’ll take place at?

  • Any news on DashClock?

    • Justin Winker

      Hoping it becomes included with AOSP.

      • Eh, either way… I was just wondering if there was any new development. DL’s had like eight articles covering DashClock over the past week or so.
