Sponsorship proposal

YAPC::Europe is a grassroots conference, which also means that its primary goal is to provide cheap and accessible conference for the attendees. On the other side we still need money to make that happen. If you feel that you or your company is able to sponsor us, please let us know. Thanks in advance. All the details may be discussed via our e-mail: mail@yapceurope.lv.

Sponsorship levels

We propose six different sponsorship levels. All the sponsors, regardless of their status, will be listed both on the conference website and in newsletters.

  • Megasponsor;
  • Platinum Sponsor;
  • Gold Sponsor;
  • Silver Sponsor;
  • Sponsor;
  • Supporter.

  • One of the talks rooms (i. e. name it after the company);
  • The lunch for one of the days during the main part of the conference;
  • The attendees dinner, which occurs the second day of the conference;
  • The pre-conference dinner (on the eve before the first day);

Job fair

Job fair is a separate kind of activity a sponsor is allowed to do during the days of the conference. This type gives the possibility to install company's table in the hall and spread printed materials among the attendees.

Bring a sponsor

A person who brings the sponsor may attend the conference free of charge. To match this option the sponsorship must result in a donation of at least 300 €.
