Event Overview

Think of a SQLSaturday as a one day conference. We bring a great line up of local, regional, and national speakers, we have breakfast and lunch onsite, and we have a dedicated area and logistics in place to ensure our attendees meet with our sponsors. We work hard to make our event a great experience for everyone, including our sponsors. Please take a moment to review our Sponsor Proposal Package  to find more information about SQLSaturday Charlotte BI Edition.

Connecting with Attendees

We provide attendees with a set of printed raffle tickets that will contain their name and email and a bar code; attendees are then able to place these tickets into the raffle box at each sponsor table to try to win a prize. Raffle tickets have your company’s logo which increases the visibility of your brand and reduces the number of duplicate tickets that go in your box. At the end of the day, you can scan the raffle tickets collected at your table and we will send you a report with the attendees' contact information.

Because we want you to be successful, we ask you to provide a prize of at least $100 in value, and that you provide a full color 8-1/2 x 11 flyers that highlights the prize(s) you are providing for the raffle. We provide the raffle box. We will have one table for all absentee vendors placed in the same area with our onsite vendors. Raffle ticket collection will proceed throughout the day. If someone from your team is present we’ll ask them to draw the winning ticket, otherwise we’ll draw the ticket. 

Event Logistics

We’ll open doors to sponsors at 7:30 am. Sponsors will be provided with a table, raffle ticket box, two chairs, and access to a 110v power outlet. Table covers available upon request - 1 week notice please. 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. Please let us know about any special request in advanced and we will make our best effort to accommodate it.  

We will provide breakfast, lunch, and refreshments to the members of your team staffing the sponsor table. Please have everyone from your team that will be attending register at http://www.sqlsaturday.com/330/register.aspx so that we can have enough food available (they can skip the prompts for payment of lunch).
