Sponsorship Plan


 

Welcome!

We appreciate you taking time to consider sponsoring SQLSaturday #246 and we’ve put together some information that will tell our about plans for the event and show you how your company will benefit from sponsoring our event.

Event Overview

Moore’s Law has taught us that technology is a world in constant motion. Do you remember … In the ‘90’s when you downloaded a picture, you would leave the room and then come back later to see what had finally appeared on your computer screen? Now, every day children stream video in the back seat of our cars! Keeping up with the increasing amounts of Data affects our businesses and our lives. This conference was designed to aid you in making Big Data solutions work for you and your life.  

Big Mountain Data Conference is all about bringing the technology community together to discuss data and the role it will play in our future, while focusing on more than just one technology. So, SQL Saturday partnered with the local Utah Hadoop Users group (www.uhug.org) and Utah Geek Events (a 501c company) to create a space to learn all about DATA! 

Regardless of the technology you use, we hope to demonstrate that there is a solution for every data-based problem you may encounter, big or small. Enjoy speakers from all data related technologies: 

Come socialize with other people just like you! Whether you are there to rub elbows with technical wizards or learn/share technology ideas specific to your industry… this is the place for you! 

Simply put- the Big Mountain Data Conference/Utah SQL Saturday will bring you up to date with familiar and new solutions to keep your business growing in the ever-changing world of technology.

Event Logistics

We’ll open the doors to sponsors at 8:00 am. Sponsors will need to provide tables and chairs if they intend to be on site with a booth/table.  If you are unable to bring a table please let us know and we will work with you on obtaining one.   Tables will be located in the same area as sessions to make it easy for attendees to stop by your table. We encourage sponsors to remain on site through at least lunch and if possible to have a representative present at the end of the day to present your raffle if you have one.  We suggest a raffle to be given away so people have to enter at your table.   

Lunch will be provided to sponsors that have registered. Please have everyone from your team that will be attending register at www.sqlsaturday.com so that we can have enough food available.
