    Sponsor benefits explained
    Diversity and Inclusion Sponsors Fund speakers' tickets and provide financial aid for under-represented developers, students, and working professionals.
    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 being included in our marketing campaigns, you'd be invited to a special VIP party for speakers, organizers and notable members in the community for some premium networking!
    Conference App (1) Yeap, we are big enough where an in-conference mobile app will improve everyone's experience. Help us pay for Guidebook and brand your company on the app!
    Chair Drop (1) 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) Be the life line for devs at a dev conference! Your company's logo will be on all coffee cups!
    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)"

    Frequently Asked Questions

    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.

    Can you help me reach a wider pool of Python developers?

    Consider spreading your message via a video sponsor!

    This year, we are expecting ~60 talks and 20 lightning talks. Your logo and message will be included in the YouTube video description as we broadcast the talks to 6000+ subscribers on SF Python's YouTube Channel and on PyVideo.

    Most PyBay talks have 2-5k views on SF Python's channel alone, quite a few have 20K+ views, and people are still watching PyBay's talk videos 4 years ago.

    Currently, video sponsorship is only available to Champion sponsors, but if you are keen on getting worldwide exposures, contact Grace to work it out.

    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. Champion or Partner 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.
