According to a tweet posted yesterday by NamesCon organizers, the price for a ticket to attend NamesCon will increase tomorrow, October 1:
On October 1st, the registration price for NamesCon Global 2020 goes up by $200, so act quickly: lock in your $499 tickets while you still can!

The ticket cost right now is $499 plus the EventBrite fee. It looks like the price to attend the conference will increase to $699 tomorrow.
While ticket costs rise as the event draws closer, NamesCon sometimes posts flash sales or other special offers to knock the price back to its current range. I do not know whether conference organizers have plans to do that again this year.
NamesCon is moving to Austin, Texas after a long run in Las Vegas. The conference will be held January 29 – February 1. More details are available on the NamesCon website.
