So a trip to PTG is really cheaper than summit? Is the PTG one
sponsored by someone?

A big IF here ...

Summit is less (or just NOT) important to developers, emm ... that is
true if 1) the team knows exactly what users/ops want so they don't even
bother interact with them, just focus on getting things done; 2) the
person who approves your trip request also believes so.

Wasn't that part of the plan? Or maybe the Ops will travel four times a
year, go to the summit twice for (watching) shows and go to the PTGs
twice to interact with the team that is busy discussing implementation

I really hope I was totally wrong.
