Thank you for considering becoming a sponsor of SQL Saturday in LA #773. We have put together some sponsorship packages that we hope you would enjoy. All proceeds go to a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
SQL Saturday in Los Angeles is a full day event put together by a group of dedicated volunteers from the Greater Los Angeles area SQL Server community. It is where speakers from all over the world come together to share their knowledge and provide quality content to the local SQL database professionals. Our experience last year has demonstrated a growing demand for an environment where people are given the opportunity to network and learn alongside their peers. We expect to achieve the same level of attendance and attract over 350 participants.
Sponsorship range from $0 to $1,000 $1,500 (no longer available) depending on the package you select, and we are always willing to discuss custom solutions to meet your expectations.

Sponsor a room*(based on availability, first come first serve)
*When you sponsor a room, the room will be named after your company and the company name will be displayed under Room Name on the schedule. The company name will also be displayed outside the room and inside the room during all sessions throughout the day. You would also have the opportunity to give a short 2 to 3 minute presentation before any or all session in that room throughout the day.
** When you sponsor a session, the name of your company will be displayed inside and outside the room during the sponsored session as "This session is Sponsored by".
The Raffle – Your Key to Success!
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 $50.00 in value, and that you provide full color 8-1/2 x 11 flyers that highlight the prize(s) you are providing for the raffle.
We provide the raffle box. We will have one table for all absent vendors placed in the same area with our onsite vendors. Raffle ticket collections will proceed through the end of the day. If someone from your team is present we will ask them to draw the winning ticket, otherwise we will draw the ticket. Attendees must be present to win. If there is a physical prize we will give it to them, otherwise we will forward you their contact information for you to follow up with them (for license keys, etc).
After the event we will mail you the raffle tickets from your box.
We will open the doors to sponsors at 8:30 am TBD. Sponsors will be provided with one table and two chairs. Access to power outlets may be limited. Please let us know if you require a power outlet so that we can best accommodate. Tables will be located in the same area as the registration and breakfast area to encourage attendees to stop by your table. We encourage sponsors to remain on site through lunch and if possible to have a representative present at the end of the day to present your prize at the raffle.
Lunch will be provided to sponsors who have also registered as attendees. Please have everyone from your team who will be attending the event register here so that we can have enough food available.
We hope you’ll support this event! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
