Sponsoring FOSSCON

FOSSCON operates primarily through the sponsors who exhibit at our conference. Sponsors benefit from exposure to our audience, as well as promotion via our social media outlets and various other benefits outlined in the details in this packet. Additionally, some sponsors use the conference as a recruitment tool, having the opportunity to submerge themselves in a growing community of industry related persons.
Listed below are the various levels of sponsorship available for FOSSCON 2016.
