After going on sale at 10:00 AM Pacific Time on 25th April, tickets for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco sold out in just two minutes.
In the recent past, Apple’s WWDC has seen really quick ticket sales. This year it was something even more because tickets sold out in less than two minutes. The reason is basically because earlier Apple used to announce the event and start selling tickets immediately. This year, they announced a day in advance when tickets would go on sale. But with last year’s tickets selling out in under two hours, some developers found themselves out of luck before they had even woken up for the day.
There have been numerous requests to increase the size of the event considering that tickets are now selling out so soon. But Apple might have a tough time doing that because the major objective of the conference is to assist developers and Apple needs to have enough engineers present to provide the hands-on help to so many developers.
