Thank you for your interest in sponsoring ContainerDays Boston 2015! We have a number of sponsorship opportunities available. All tiers include placement of your logo on the ContainerDays Boston 2015 event site.
We expect about 100 attendees, the majority in a technical role with interest in introducing and/or active experience in implementing container and related technologies. Please be aware that ContainerDays events are informal, "unconference" style events for technical practitioners.
Microsoft NERD has kindly agreed to receive and store small items such as promotional material. Due to lack of suitable storage space, these may not arrive more than 3 days prior to the event, and may not be left behind afterwards.
Sponsor tables are 6' x 2'; we estimate that each sponsor with a table will have roughly 6' x 4' of space overall. Power strips will be run to the tables. Wireless internet is provided, but wired internet access will not be available.
There are no facilities for complex booth setups, shipping and receiving of large or bulky items, or other major industry conference-style arrangements.
There is a parking garage connected to the venue. Rates are $27 for the day and $10 after 4pm and on the weekends.
You will get the most mileage from your vendor table by sending technical staff prepared to engage in the conference sessions.
With the exception of Platinum and Gold tiers, which come with short "shout-out" opportunities to present your company, sponsorships do not include speaking slots. Your attending staff is welcome and encouraged to propose topics for, and participate in, the OpenSpaces sessions and workshops.
Unfortunately, graduation season in Boston means that accommodation in the summer gets expensive quickly, and we recommend that you look at accommodation soon if you're coming from out of town. Due to the numbers involved, we currently don't have any block rates with hotels.
The majority of the available hotel options we've been able to find that are below $200 a night will require a rental car. One economical option that's public transport-friendly (the Microsoft NERD is on the Red Line) would be to look for hotels in the Framingham/Natick area, where there are still rooms at ~$100 a night. Check whether the hotel has a shuttle to the train station: the trip to South Station with the Commuter Rail, then to Kendall Sq with the Red Line, should take just over an hour.
You will be invoiced for your sponsorship. Please provide your company name, physical address, contact information, and the sponsorship tier in which you are interested.
