Following an amazing PyCon 2014, the first of two years in Montréal, we're well underway with the planning efforts for PyCon 2015. The website is being prepped and as we get that going, we also begin the search for sponsors.
The 2014 launch day began with 17 sponsors, and quickly grew to 128. Are you or your organization interested in being a part of an even bigger launch for the best PyCon yet?
Sponsorship is what allows PyCon to do what it does. It enables us to fund programs like Financial Aid and subsidized child care, bringing more people to PyCon who otherwise may not have made it. It also allows us to run events like the Young Coders tutorials, bringing Python to children.
Sponsorship brings great benefits to its supporters. What better place to hire Python developers than at the largest collection of them around the world? Our expo hall and job fair are a great place to make connections with over 2,000 Python developers. For more thoughts on sponsorship benefits, see our https://us.pycon.org/2014/sponsors/whysponsor/ page.
Check out the PyCon Sponsorship Prospectus for more information about the sponsorship benefits and levels. To sign up as a launch day sponsor, or if you have any questions about sponsorship, please contact the conference Chair, Diana Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As with the last three conferences, PyCon 2015 will sell out. Be sure to mark your calendars for April 8-16, 2015, and look for our ticket sales announcements, usually in September. We'll also be sending out our Call for Proposals of talks and tutorials soon, usually in July.
