After a very successful inaugural event in 2017, DevOpsDays Hartford will be back in 2018! It will be held October 16 & 17 at Infinity Hall in Hartford. We’re expecting around 200 attendees.

In addition to t-shirts, attendees will receive diner-style mugs with their tickets for the conference. This special sponsorship allows community organizations and sponsors at any level to add their logo on a takeaway for participants for $500. The mug has only 8 available spots for logos, once filled we cannot accept more. Please note, logos will be printed as below, in a single color. For maximum diner feel, we’d love your cheesiest designs. Last year’s mug looked a bit like this:
Gold and Happy Hour sponsors will receive a 6’ table and two chairs Silver/Bronze sponsors share a 6’ table and two chairs, that is, one chair for each Silver/Bronze sponsor.
It is good to send sales and marketing people on staff, but make sure to send your techy geeks that can interact with attendees during sessions, Open Spaces and breaks. Sponsor personnel are encouraged to attend the sessions and participate in the group conversations and Open Spaces process are part of the community.
Our team will assign your table. Gold & Happy Hour sponsors will get preferential locations.
None. The table is a place to talk to people during breaks. DevOpsDays Hartford is not a typical conference or convention. We have seen that sponsors benefit the most by bringing engineers to the conference and interacting with attendees. You are responsible to collect any information you want in person.
Absolutely. If you want to do a giveaway, you’ll need to bring your own method of collecting information (business cards, entry slips, google form, etc.) for whatever drawing you want to use. At the closing session we’ll give you a short time slot on stage for the giveaway.
Whatever you bring, must fit on or behind your table-space.
Each table comes with two chairs including shared tables. So for Bronze/Silver sponsors, you will have a single chair.
You must bring your own signage and table coverings (Shared tables will have a provided non-branded table linens) but as before, everything must fit on or behind your table.
No, but you and your team are welcome to submit a proposal for a talk like everyone else.
Yes, there are many outlets throughout the sponsor space and we will provide power-strips where necessary.
Wifi will be provided for the conference, but we cannot guarantee the quality of the connection. If available, you may show demonstrations, but it’s recommended to have a backup, non-internet plan.
When payment for your sponsorship is confirmed, we will need one logo graphic. This should be a vector or high-quality graphic as it will be used on all materials. This will be used for our website, on print materials and the rotating sponsor slides during the event.
DevOpsDays Conferences typically attract technologists, engineers, and technology managers. These folks are attending to learn and share their experiences about the DevOps movement. They most appreciate sponsors who engage with them on that level.
