Don’t miss your opportunity to sponsor the 2017 Open Compute Summit, which will be held on 8 - 9 March at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Sponsorship sales will close this week! Friday 27 January will be your last opportunity to sponsor Summit.
Openness is the current that powers our community and this year’s summit theme of “Open Hardware. Open Software. Open Future.” will showcase OCP hardware and the software deployed on it. Attendees will also hear about the major open hardware initiatives that have been introduced since the last OCP Summit and will be given a look into the future of OCP.
Don’t wait! Sponsor the OCP Summit today and be a catalyst to the Open Future.
The majority of sponsorships are sold out. However, if you’re looking for a guaranteed speaking opportunity and booth to showcase your OCP efforts there are still some Silver and Gold sponsorship opportunities available.
Other opportunities include:
Startup sponsorships are available for organizations that are less than three years old, and currently generate less than $1 million in annual revenue.
The following Networking sponsorships are still available:
Summit Opening Night Happy Hour - this event has been very well-attended in the past; we keep the expo floor open and serve appetizers and drinks along with a DJ to keep the energy going. You would have access to the Expo Hall Stage for 10 minutes to open the happy hour, hold a raffle, etc. Your branding would be on general event signage as well as on the cups and napkins, and can even help us create a signature drink!
Day 2 Lunch
Days 1 and/or 2 Breakfast
In addition to significant branding on the OCP website, on-site signage and complimentary passes for staff, each sponsor also is able to address the attendees for 10 minutes at the beginning of each of these opportunities.
Engineering Workshop sponsorships are still available - $60K gets your organization the ability to be the exclusive sponsor logo on the Engineer Workshop Videos. This year we are having these professionally recorded and branded. Our Summit videos are a great opportunity to get your organization in front of our project community even beyond the event. Don’t want to be the sole engineering workshop sponsor? The we have three (3) $20K opportunities available.
Don’t wait: you’ll be too late! - Sponsorship sales WILL end on Friday 27 January and you will have missed the chance to get your organization in front of the nearly 3,000 attendees that are expected representing more than 650 companies from 30 countries.
