Sponsor FOSS4G: limited time opportunity

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 | by

First a big thank you to the many existing sponsors. Sponsors make FOSS4G possible.

Late call for FOSS4G sponsorship

As we build momentum for September, we have one last chance for sponsors to join in supporting the FOSS4G* conference. We hope that you will join us as a sponsor. After August 15th, we will no longer be able to include new sponsors in printed materials, so this is your last chance to connect with attendees.

FOSS4G will be packed with exciting content and dynamic people. We have three engaging keynote speakers — Mike Bostock of d3.js fame, Sarah Novotny of Nginix, and Al Shaw of ProPublica. The conference also features more than 40 workshops, and three packed days of presentations, with presenters representing 20 different countries.

We’d love for you to be part of our conference and our community.

Why FOSS4G, and why 2014?

  • FOSS4G is the largest global gathering focused on open source geospatial software, with an expected audience of 750-1,000 attendees from more than 40 countries.
  • Our attendees include developers, users, decision-makers and observers from a broad spectrum of organizations and fields of operation.
  • If your goal is to connect with people in the geospatial realm, FOSS4G is a unique opportunity. With its attractive combination of culture and nature, Portland is an appealing conference venue attracting a strong domestic and international audience.
  • By sponsoring this year, you will be in excellent company with the current FOSS4G sponsors.

Sponsorship packages start at $1,500, with benefits increasing at each level. For full details, see our sponsorship page. If you have any questions or thoughts on sponsorship or this year’s conference, please get in touch.

We look forward to great things in September, and hope you will be able to join us.
