This year, we’re trying something new by finding new ways to support Ethereum-related public goods in lieu of a traditional Sponsorship program.
Aligned teams will have the opportunity to contribute toward Ethereum-related public goods to grow the Ethereum ecosystem, and further technologies that help us move forward together.
As a thank you, we’ll be allocating Supporter Tickets to Devcon VI to those who give back to the community by supporting public goods that benefit Ethereum.
If you’re building applications or infrastructure that benefits Ethereum and you’re interested in participating or learning more, click here to inquire for more information!*.
*as Supporter Tickets are tightly limited in availability, entities are subject to a review prior to participating in the Devcon Supporter round.
Check out the Devcon Archive! There you can see videos of keynotes, workshops, and other experiences all sorted into playlists that are available in one place, with details of past events and media dating back to 2014’s “ÐΞVcon-0” in Berlin.
The main language of the conference will be English. All main-stage talks will be translated into Spanish, and we will provide Spanish translations for side-stage talks and workshops where possible.
We will be implementing whatever COVID requirements are mandated by the government of Colombia at the start of the event. Currently as of June 2022, there are no restrictions.
We’re also happy to mention that our venue Ágora Bogotá has has qualified for Bureau Veritas Safe Guard certification, meaning they have satisfied a rigorous set of biosafety criteria operationally and in their physical space.
Yes! Fast, reliable WiFi is a priority to us this year, and it will be available to all attendees for the duration of the event.

We’re excited to announce that Devcon VI will be held in Bogotá, Colombia's capital and largest city.
Our venue is the Agora Bogotá Convention Center; a newly constructed and state of the art venue that we hope will be, by far, the most suitable venue to ever host Devcon.
Our search for a fitting location for Devcon VI began prior to Devcon V in 2019. After exploring venues in over ten cities across the world, and meticulously evaluating each against an extensive set of criteria, the clear winner was Bogotá, Colombia.
See our City Guide for an in-depth explanation on why Bogotá.
Bogotá is safer today than at any point in the last 50 years in terms of crime rates. That said, when visiting as a tourist, whether it be Paris, New York City, or any other metropolis, we recommend exercising some extra precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. For more details, see our City Guide.
At an altitude of 2,600m, the weather in Bogotá is comfortable year-round with average daily highs of around 20ºC (68°F), and nighttime lows around 8ºC (mid-40s°F).
The majority of locals in Bogotá speak Spanish, although you are more likely to run into English speakers in tourist-friendly areas like Candelaria, Sante Fe and Chapinero.
Below are a few of the popular dishes, but one can expect most of the food found in Bogotá to be typical Latin American dishes, surrounded by lots of fresh produce.
The tap water is safe to drink. Colombia’s major cities have some of the best tap water around. Bogotá and Medellin are known for their excellent water quality.
Devcon makes a point of delivering a holistic learning experience through talks, workshops, panels, lightning sessions, and other freeform formats! Everyone learns in their own way, and we aim to accommodate as many styles as possible.
In recognition that the Devcon speaker application process has been very competitive in past years, we are doing our best to make the review process as fair, unbiased, and as open as possible for all. All speaker applications are reviewed by teams of community experts who analyze each application relevant to their area of expertise and collaborate together to make the final decision.
