Welcome to summer in San Francisco!

Bring a light jacket for the evenings and you will find that the temperature is always perfect to talk about Python with your new and old pals!

We will be hosting PyBay at several venues, all within walking distance or an Uber/Lyft ride from Marriott Marquis in downtown San Francisco. We are looking for venues for our pre-conference workshops and opening party, please read on to see if you can help us out!

Workshop and Opening Party Venues

We are actively looking for companies that can sponsor the venues for our 9 pre-conference workshops August 16-17 and/or our Opening Party on August 17. Please consider a Sponsorship Exchange for providing:

Workshops: Space in SF with projectors/AV to fit 30, 45, or 60+ developers classroom style sitting from 8:30a - 5:30p on Aug 16-17. Ideally, the company has 2-3 rooms fitting these criteria to host all of our workshops and provide water/coffee/snacks at break time.

Opening Party: Space in SF with AV support and the budget for a welcoming reception on Aug 17 5:30p - 10:00p. We are anticipating 300-350 developers to mingle, network, attend keynote address and lightning talks. Ideally, your company can provide video recording of the talks also.

Want to support us but don't have the right venue? We can take a monetary contribution towards holding these events at our main conference venue and figure out the equivalent Sponsorship package to recognize you.
