This is a flexible and meaningful way to give back to the community while working within your budget
Gold and Diamond-level sponsors of food will have their company’s contribution recognized on the projector screens before talk starts and their logo printed on the napkins accompanying the sponsored event. The logo of companies sponsoring coffee will be printed on coffee cups.
Gold-level sponsors of video will have their company’s logo included in the conference talk video’s introduction, and a link to your company’s URL will be included in the talk video’s description on YouTube. SF Python’s YouTube channel has over 4,000 subscribers, and each talk video from past PyBays has received 5,000-20,000+ views.
Diamond-level sponsors of body workers at your booth will be assigned an extra-large booth. PyBay will provide body workers to offer 20-minute massages to attendees. Sponsors can chat with developers waiting for their turn or ask them to sign up and be messaged when their turn has come.
Diamond-level sponsors of Company Lounge will have access to an extra large booth to use however you'd like to draw in attendees: hosted talks, office hours with experts, informational interviews, entertainment... imagine your own meetups within PyBay. This option is ideal for companies with multiple initiatives to connect with Python devs. Your creativity and budget will be your only limits at your company lounge.
What are the advantages of adding Diversity & Inclusion to our sponsorship?
I'd like to sponsor, what are the next steps?
Thanks in advance! If you don't have additional questions, few easy steps:
1) Provide branding info
2) Pay via credit card or write Grace to request an invoice
3) Execute sponsor's agreement
4) Sit back, relax, watch the tweets come in, and start thinking about your in-conference presence in mid-July.
How do I maximize my exhibit space and time?
Now: Committing earlier will ensure that you get a table with better location and easy access to electrical outlet.
A few weeks before: Get a branded tablecloth for your table and bring a pop-up banner that fits behind your table. Gold or Diamond Level Sponsors should print an additional 36"x84" pop-up banner to gain visibility on the main stage. The photos from past PyBays may help you get an idea of the layout.
Where should I mail the booth swag material?
Please follow the labeling and shipping instructions here.
*Please note that this instruction is for shipping booth swag (banner, giveaways, etc.), if you are planning to ship oversized items and furniture, please check with Grace.
