Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Overview

Cascadia IT Conference 2012 is a perfect way to get the folks who influence and make purchase decisions talking about your products and services. Our attendees are looking for state-of-the-art, cost effective technologies including systems administration products and services, networking, security, virtualization and storage solutions. Get quality face time with this select audience and start a buzz that extends beyond the attendees to their management and to the community at large.

Cascadia encourages sponsors to attend the conference sessions, meals, and networking events beyond the exhibit area to maximize your investment and networking opportunities with participants. In addition to observing which sessions are popular and which are not, hearing from attendees (and participating alongside of them) at sessions is a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of system administrators in the Northwest

Opportunities at CasITConf:

  • Exhibit: Demonstrate and sell your product, build your company profile, interact with your customer base and make an impact on the people who influence IT decision makers.

  • Speak: Grab 15 minutes to address attendees by sponsoring a Lunch break or the Conference Reception on Friday night. Platinum and Gold Sponsors get a 90 minute session on Friday to dive deeply into a customer solution, new product offering, or other content. Substantial and active customer participation/partnership in your presentation is required and talks must be approved by the conference chairs before the deadline. These sessions will be marketed in a special email announcement.
