There are several sponsorship opportunities available for the Boston PHP Northeast Conference. Sponsoring this community organized event is a great way for your organization to demonstrate its support for the PHP community. The event will be taking place on on Saturday, August 11th and Sunday, August 12th at Microsoft’s NERD Center in Cambridge, MA and will be focused around four tracks:
- Core PHP
- Web Development
- User Experience (UX)
We are primarily looking for in-kind sponsorships. Some items available to sponsor include (items are subject to change—this is not a final list):
- Speaker Dinner
- T-Shirts for Attendees
- Evening Event on Saturday
- A Speaker’s Travel Expenses (see below for more details)
- Breakfast on Saturday or Sunday
- Lunch on Saturday or Sunday
- Coffee on Saturday or Sunday
- Afternoon Snacks on Saturday or Sunday
- Raffle Items (e.g. books, magazines, training, software)
We’re also looking for media sponsors, if you’d like to help promote the event. All of the sponsorship levels (Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Media) include a sponsorship listing on the event website and the ability to send us promotional swag to give to attendees. The Gold, Silver, and Media sponsorship levels include some visual presence at the event. Gold sponsors will get more prominent visual presence and a mention during the opening and closing keynotes.
One great way that you can sponsor this event is by helping to pay for a speaker’s travel expenses. A couple speakers who are looking for travel support include Stefan Koopmanschap and Michelangelo van Dam.
Please contact me if you’re interested in sponsoring.
