Live in LA? Be a homestay host for a QGCon speaker!

Each year, QGCon runs a “homestay” program that pairs speakers with local community members for a place to crash free of charge. The goal of the program is to help defray the cost of traveling to the conference and make the event more financially accessible for all. Our wonderful homestay hosts make the program possible.


We are currently seeking volunteers to host speakers during QGCon 2017 (April 1 & 2).If you live in the Los Angeles area and have the space to host a visitor for a few nights, we would love to hear from you. To volunteer as a host, simply fill out this form:


After you submit the form, we will be in touch shortly to confirm your information and to match you with a speaker who has applied to the homestay program. In our experience, hosting a speaker is a great way to meet great people and make new friends.


If you are considering volunteering to be a host but have questions before you fill out the form, please feel free to email the QGCon organizers at


Thank you very much for your contribution to the QGCon community!
