I would like to sponsor DDD Brisbane
Great! DDD Brisbane will be heavily publicized in related websites and we believe offers a fantastic marketing opportunity as well as the ability to support the local development community. We have various levels of sponsorship available and opportunities for logo placement on the website, agenda, delegate slides, speaker shirts and we are happy to include advertisements in delegate packs. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to do this kind of thing more often
Brisbane has a very active developer community. Consider attending one of the meetups such as Brisbane .Net User Group, BrisJS, Brisbane Functional Programming Group, Agile Brisbane, Barcamp Queensland, QLD ALM Users Group, or Brisbane Azure User Group.
Who is coordinating this event?

DDD Brisbane will be held at QUT Gardens Point.
2 George St, Brisbane
Although parking is available around the Brisbane CBD we recommend that delegates travel by train or bus and then walk.
There are several train stations around the Brisbane CBD. We recommend getting a train to SouthBank then walking across the Goodwill bridge.
There are also several bus stops around the Brisbane CBD. See TransLink for more details.
Paid car parking is available in various places in the Brisbane CBD and surrounds. Be aware it could get expensive on a Saturday.
Although we will be charging delegates a small fee, we are still looking for sponsorships to cover the majority of the costs. This year we have 3 levels of sponsorship:
Provide sponsorship of $2,000 or above.
Provide sponsorship between $1,000 and $2,000.
Provide sponsorship under $1,000.00 or offer prizes and giveaways.
For Gold and Silver sponsorship, your company banners are able to be placed throughout the Event venue. In addition, Gold Sponsors will have their logo/names printed on all name tags that the delegates will wear. All sponsors will have the opportunity to also provide pamphlets/booklets as handouts to the delegates and will be mentioned as Gold, Silver or Standard sponsors in the DDD Brisbane website. Gold partners will be included on all email correspondence.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or have questions, please email email@example.com
