devopsdays Singapore - sponsor

We greatly value sponsors for this open event. If you are interested in sponsoring, please drop us an email or download the prospectus right away.

DevOpsDays is a self-organizing conference for practitioners that depends on sponsorships. We do not have vendor booths, sell product presentations, or distribute the attendee contact lists.

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.

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

Why Sponsor Us?

The DevOpsDays event mandate is to bring the highest­ quality speakers, experts, and the curious together.

Singapore is not only one of the fastest growing startup hubs in the world but is also a trusted healthcare, telecom, and financial services nexus in Asia with strong investment in technology from the Government. We aim to attract representation from large enterprises and the startup community alike.

By sponsoring DevOpsDays, you will be exposing your organizations brand and services to Singapore and Southeast Asia’s top talent in this rapidly growing space.

Sponsoring DevOpsDays Singapore connects your company to some of the greatest technical and business minds in the industry who are influencing decisions in security, monitoring, operations, engineering, quality, and organisational change.

The Venue

DevOpsDays Singapore 2016 will be held at the Atrium Ballroom in the Raffles City Convention Centre (80 Bras Basah Road, Level 4), in the middle of one of Singapore’s numerous cultural hubs. Many attractions are within walking distance and the location is well connected with public transport (map).

Booth Space

Gold and Platinum sponsors receive booth space at the event. This is the perfect spot for your engineers to meet other tech geeks. Your booth space will have a booth table (185 cm x 80 cm) and two chairs. You can set up your table as you like, be it to display signage, products, materials, or swag giveaways. We encourage sponsors to send engineers to interact with attendees during session breaks.

Large displays and oversized marketing material are not allowed in the exhibitor space. Please check with the organizers if your items fall under the restricted category. You may ship your booth materials to the venue prior to the event day.

Booths are not selectable. Our team will assign your table. Assignments will be made two weeks before the conference date.

How many scanners (and which type) do we get?

None. The booth is a place to talk to people during breaks and this conference is not a typical conference or convention.

Whatever you bring must fit behind or on your table (185 x 80 cm).
