Sponsor Early

Agreeing to sponsor linux.conf.au 2015 early is important. The earlier you sign a sponsorship agreement, and we have a purchase order completed, the more time we can spend promoting your sponsorship.

All sponsors will be mentioned in relevant press releases (for example the Speaker's Travel sponsor will be mentioned in the programme announcement press release). Emperor Penguin sponsors will have a press release issued announcing their sponsorship in partnership with the sponsor.

Sponsorship Packages

Targeted Sponsorship Opportunities

Speaker's Travel Sponsor

This gives the sponsor the right to be introduced at the conference as having funded speaker's travel grants for the conference. Additionally, speakers who receive such grants will be informed as part of the travel booking process that their travel has been sponsored by your firm.

Parent's Room Sponsor

This year linux.conf.au seeks to encourage diversity amongst our delegates by offering a parents room as well as free childcare for delegates. Sponsoring this would give your firm signage rights at the entrance to these facilities, as well as a logo on relevant delegate paperwork.

Lanyard Sponsor

linux.conf.au seeks expressions of interest in providing branded lanyards for delegates badges. These lanyards will be provided to all attendees including speakers and provide a high level of visibility for the associated sponsor.
