We appreciate you taking time to consider sponsoring SQLSaturday #555 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.
Think of a SQLSaturday as a one day conference. We bring in a lot of volunteer speakers, we have lunch on site and we have a dedicated area set up for our attendees to meet with our sponsors. We work hard to make our event a great experience for everyone, especially our sponsors that enable us to cover the working costs of this free training day.
We’re expecting 200+ attendees at SQLSaturday #555 Munich.
Sponsorship ranges from 500€ to 3000€ depending on the package you select, and we’re always willing to discuss custom solutions to meet your needs.
All fees must be paid in advance. To register as a sponsor just visit www.sqlsaturday.com/555/Sponsors/SponsorSignup.aspx and fill out our sponsorship registration form. We’ll email you an invoice that can be paid via credit card or check.
In 2016 we will host two SQL Saturdays in Germany.
11.06.2016 SQL Saturday #525 Rheinland
08.10.2016 SQL Saturday #555 Munich
Therefore we are offering a special sponsorship-package for Silver, Gold and You Rock! Sponsors.
You´ll find the discount on the invoice, which we´ll send you after your registration at www.sqlsaturday.com/555/Sponsors/SponsorSignup.aspx.
For the first time, we assemble a Jobwall at the SQL Saturday venue, which every company can use for publishing job offers with a high quality DIN A5 poster. Interested job applicants then have the opportunity to get in touch with your company directly and you receive an low divergence loss, cause you reach the right target group at our SQL Saturdays.
Our Silver, Gold and YouRock! Sponsors will get this additional benefit free of charge.
All others can book this sponsoring for an amount of 25€/package for these service. These charge has to be paid independent off, you´ll take part at the conferences (Rheinland and/or Munich). Companies who are not present at the conference, we´ll charge an amount of 50€/package for these service.
If you want to use this offer, please send us your company logo, Job title and short job description to email@example.com. We’ll email you an invoice that can be paid via credit card, PayPal or check.
The biggest challenge with community events is capturing contact information for follow ups. Few attendees will have business cards, and having them hand write their info often leads to a 30% or higher loss due to inability to read what they wrote! We provide attendees with a set of pre-printed raffle tickets (see below) that will contain their name and email address; they are then able to put these tickets into the raffle box at each sponsor table to try to win a prize. This gives you 100% readability and 0% loss! It is also more effective than any other technique we’ve seen for trying to capture contact information and that includes scanning their name badge.
Because we want you to be successful all of our sponsorship levels include the requirement that you provide a prize of at least 50€ or above in value, and that you provide a full color DIN A4 flyers that highlights the prize(s) you are providing for the raffle.
Raffle ticket collection will proceed through the end of the day. If someone from your team is present we’ll ask them to draw the winning ticket, otherwise we’ll draw the ticket. Attendees must be present to win. If there is a physical prize we’ll give it to them, otherwise we’ll forward you their contact information for you to follow up with (for license keys, etc).
After the event we will mail you all the raffle tickets from your box. There may be duplicates; depending on how exciting your prize is attendees may contribute more than one ticket to your box – but that’s a good thing, they are willing to provide you their contact information in return for the chance to win.
We’ll open the doors to sponsors at 7:30 am. Sponsors will be provided with limited access to 230v power (please let us know what you need in advance). Tables will be located in the same area as registration and breakfast 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 prize at the end of day raffle.
Lunch will be provided to sponsors that have registered. Please have everyone from your team that will be attending register at www.sqlsaturday.com/555 so that we can have enough food available.
