Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me more about Bodyworkers branding option at my booth!

Developers' wellness is important to your Conference Chair because face it, we have to work after this amazing weekend! So, we are providing massage therapists (table or chair TBD) to your booth so you can chat with appreciative Pythonistas while they sign-up and wait for their 20-minute massages. Ready to be swamped with conversations? Select Bodyworkers branding option under Diamond Sponsorship!

What about the Company Lounge Branding option?

For the ultimate branding within PyBay, consider transforming a 55'x12' indoor/outdoor space into "{Your Company's Name} Lounge". This is ideal for companies with multiple initiatives to connect with Python Devs. Use your lounge however you'd like to draw in attendees: host talks, office hours with experts, offer informational interviews, provide entertainment... imagine your own meetups within PyBay, your creativity and budget is your limit!

What's the advantage of being a video sponsor in the Gold level?

Worldwide, increasing presence of your company's brand on some of the best talks in the Python ecosystems on SF Python's YouTube Channel and on PyVideo. Yes, extend your reach beyond the live event. Most PyBay talks have 2-5k views on SF Python's channel alone, quite a few have 20K+ views to date! Plus, you get to enjoy other Gold level benefits: exhibit all day Sat, 5 conf passes ($3K value), company's banner on the main stage and more.

I am interested in supporting diversity, what are my options?

GREAT! Grace, our conference chair is working on a Diversity Sponsorship Program to further encourage diversity and inclusion. Last year, together with SauceLabs, InfoScout, and Galvanize's contributions, we sent 20+ scholars to PyBay, we think we can do even better this year. Please email Grace to help shape this program or to connect us with companies that have a diversity initiative!
