    Sponsor benefits explained
    Diversity and Inclusion Sponsors Be the hero to students, members of under-represented groups and others who need a little help to get to PyBay2019. Every dollar you contribute will go towards funding D&I applicants to experience the incredible learning and networking opportunity at PyBay! More info here.
    Speakers' Lodging & Flight (4+) Help our speakers recover their travel cost! We will divide up the total collected and incl your company's name to the correspondence when we reimburse the speakers - before the conference! In addition to lots of tweets and love being included in our marketing campaigns, 3 of your staff will be invited to a special VIP party on August 16 6-9p for speakers, organizers and notable members in the community for some premium networking!
    Conference App (1) Want your logo be seen every time when someone looks at their phone to see where they are supposed to go next during PyBay? Help us pay for Guidebook, improve conference goers' experience and brand your company on the app!
    Chair Drop (1) - SOLD OUT Be the conversation topic as devs wait for the keynote to start! Is it a swag on the seat or a secret prize someone(s) will win? Our volunteers will put your swag or message of your choice on every seat before the first keynote.
    Coffee & Tea (1) - SOLD OUT Be the life line for devs at a dev conference! Your company's logo will be on all coffee cups!
    Maker Happy Hour (more sponsors = better reception) Be the enabler for the most fun and anticipated event at PyBay where makers do show and tell, win prizes on their iOT or hardware gadgets, and socialize with other Pythonistas over food and drinks. The happy hour will happen at the main conference venue on Sat 6-9p after the talks are over. As a sponsor, you'd be praised for making the Maker happy hour happen before and throughout the conference via public announcements, your logo will be on signages near reception, and you can showcase your product at the maker's area (The more money you contribute, the larger your exhibit area). Additionally, you will have the option to provide a prize for the maker competition winners and receive 20% off PyBay's pass.
    Host programs in your booth Want to run your own mmetups on both conference days within your extra large booth? Be our highest level sponsor. If you don't have enough staff to give talks, do mock interviews or demo your products, we'll station massage therapists in your booth to make sure you get the most traffic and love from devs.
    Your name on 80+ videos** We’ll thank your company for sponsoring the video recording of all talks numerous times during the conference. All YouTube videos will include a 1-second intro saying "Talk videos through the generosity of (your company)"
