devopsdays Washington, DC - Sponsor

DevOpsDays is a self-organizing conference for DevOps practitioners that depends on your 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 demonstrate products or projects as part of an open space session.

The best thing to do is send practitioners to interact with their peers at DevOpsDays on their own terms.

Early sponsorships are available now. These sponsorships are being made available before the date and location of DevOpsDays DC have been confirmed. We are targeting June, 2019 for the conference but there are no guarantees that we will find a location that meets our criteria with availability.

Please email the organizers at organizers-washington-dc-2019@devopsdays.org with any questions you may have about sponsoring the event.

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.
