Google I/O, a conference dedicated entirely to Google technologies and hosted in San Francisco's Moscone Center, is fast approaching, and Google today opened up early registration to key developer partners and 2010 I/O attendees. Early reg, available to the first 1500 people who complete it, costs $450 ($100 more than last year). Don't worry though - when it goes public next week, the price is going to stay the same until April 17th, at which point it will go up another $100 to $550 (thanks for the correction, Philip!). Unfortunately, unless you've received a personal invitation, you will not be able to proceed with the early signup and will have to wait until February 7th.

You can read more about the conference, which will feature tracks on Google TV app development and Honeycomb, right here.

Dear Artem Russakovskii,

As a token of our appreciation for being a key developer partner, we’d like to invite you to register for Google I/O 2011 at the Early Bird price of $450, one week before we open up registration to the public. Take advantage of this pre-sale by registering with the last name above and the email address to which we’ve sent this message.

This year, there will be 1,500 tickets available during the pre-sale period, with pre-sales lasting until February 6 or when we sell out, whichever comes first. Please register early to enjoy pre-sale registration.

    According to the official Google I/O 2011 website, any ticket sold before the April 17th is sold at Early Bird price ($450). Tickets sold April 17th and later will be $550. I don't see anything in the pre-registration email above proving anything else than 1500 pre-registration tickets being offered to previous attendees. Please correct the post - or me!

      Thanks Philip - I got "early reg" and "early bird" confused. All fixed up now.

    yeah i don't think they will change the Google I/O price that is published in the Google I/O webpage. So I would assume that $450 would be the early bird price!

    How long before April 17th do think it'll actually sell out though? I've seen a lot more news about it this year than previous years.

    And I'm torn between going to Google Apps sessions and Android sessions... maybe I'll hit Google Apps and read AndroidPolice.com for Android updates ;o)

      I think it'll sell out very quickly, way before the deadline. I give it a few weeks.

    Do you need to tell them which sessions you want to attend during signup, or are the sessions on a first-come-first-served basis?

      I believe the format for I/O is that it's completely open without a need for event pre-registration, unlike CES.

        Indeed, there are many sessions going on at the same time, and they're all first-come first-served.
