Our plan is to rent train carriages (one or more) from different
departure cities to KubeCon. 🚝 Those carriages will be founded by
sponsors that believe in the initiative and participants that would like
to travel to KubeCon by train.
Both sponsors and participants get a great deal out of this initiative:
📌 Sponsors will be able to show interest in this sustainable
initiative, distribute their material during the trip and have visibility
throughout the duration of KubeTrain
🙋 Participants will be able to buy their train tickets to KubeCon
with a considerable discount and enjoy the trip with activities organized
by the sponsors and the local community.
