Kiwi PyCon Sponsorship Drive

 Kiwi PyCon is approaching! You probably think that's a good thing, but if you're one of the poor volunteer organisers, that's a scary thought. Why? We have bills to pay, and very little income. That means it's time to shill for some cash! Below is an excerpt from our public sponsorship announcement email. If your company is willing to sponsor a good cause, please get in touch with me.

Kiwi PyCon is organised by the New Zealand Python User group - a not-for-profit organisation. We don’t make any profit from the conference, and the organisers donate their free time to make the event a success. We rely entirely on companies’ sponsorship to pay the bills.

Sponsorship has several advantages for you:

  • It’s an opportunity to get brand exposure in front of the foremost Python experts from New Zealand and around the world.
  • Presents a fantastic networking opportunity if you are looking to employ engineers now, or in the future.
  • Align yourself with market leaders and past sponsors such as Github, Weta Digital, Catalyst IT, Mozilla. Become known as a Python promoter and industry leader. 
  • Gold sponsors receive five complimentary tickets to the conference and their logo on the conference shirt and all print materials.

If you’d like to sponsor the conference, a document describing sponsorship opportunities is available here.
