devopsdays Houston - Sponsor

We greatly value sponsors for this open event. Please see our Sponsorship Prospectus for details about the event and sponsorship levels. If you have any questions, please drop us an email at [[email protected] ].

devopsdays is a self-organizing conference for practitioners that depends on sponsorships. We do not have vendor booths, sell product presentations, or distribute attendee contact lists. Sponsors have the opportunity to have short elevator pitches during the program and will get recognition on the website and social media before, during and after the event. Sponsors are encouraged to represent themselves by actively participating and engaging with the attendees as peers. Any attendee also has the opportunity to demo products/projects as part of an open space session.

All sponsors will get a full table where they can interact with those interested to come visit during breaks. All attendees are welcome to propose any subject they want during the open spaces, but this is a community-focused conference, so heavy marketing will probably work against you when trying to make a good impression on the attendees.

The best thing to do is send engineers to interact with the experts at devopsdays on their own terms.

What should we expect regarding electricity? (how much, any fees, etc)
There are no fees. There are a number of power outlets along the walls of the room. However, we suggest that you bring a few extension cords, as there may not be enough power outlets or they may not be close enough to your table to be reachable by a laptop/monitor cable.
What should we expect regarding WiFi? (how much, any fees, etc)
There will be free WiFi, but wired connections will not be provided.
Whom should we send?
This is a community event, so it is better to send engineers rather than sales people.
As a Platinum/Gold we are supposed to have 5-minute/1-minute slot to address the attendees. When will that be? How will it work?
We are still working on an exact schedule, but you will address the audience right after the keynote talks on one of the two days. For 5-minute slot you are welcome to use slides. An email in late May will provide additional details.
