I would not be able to attend it either. My country is in EU, taxes and 
prices are just like in Germany but salaries much less. I had some 
troubles getting to t3dd07 due to financing and even do not think about 
ty3con - I just cannot afford two events in a year due to prices. May be 
big companies do but I cannot. There is even no discount for core team 
anymore. I possibly will skip all futher typo3 events - too expensive 
for me :(
