So you want to, or know someone who would like to be a PyCon sponsor?

PyCon 2011 is breaking records already - but we're still on the lookout for more excellent sponsors to join our already impressive list of sponsors - if you are part of a business, and you want to reach out to over a thousand Python enthusiasts - PyCon is the place to do so.

Your sponsorship helps keep PyCon affordable and accessible to the widest possible audience - and helps you connect to the Python community. The money goes not just to the conference, but also to the Python Software Foundation, who uses those funds to further grow the community through sprints, development grants, assisting to fund other conferences throughout the world, and much more.

Sponsorship not only brings good will from the community for your company - but it also offers you an awesome audience for your product(s) and services and can help with recruiting efforts (we strongly encourage recruiting at PyCon) - and it can even help with new product launches (speaking from personal experience)!

If you are interested - or know someone who is - take a look at the sponsorship prospectus. We offer a variety of levels for you to choose from, and can be flexible with the benefits. For example, if you don't need a booth - you may (on a case by case basis) trade it for additional session passes (good for the entire conference) or tutorials registrations for your personnel.

You can contact pycon-sponsors@python.org or Jesse Noller (jnoller@python.org) directly with any questions you might have. If you know someone who might be interested, you can also pass on contact information.
