This year we are being proactive and reaching out to companies and SMEs who may be interested in sponsoring OSGeoIE but who may, as yet, not be aware of the symposium or the activity of the OSGeo community in Ireland. The OSGeoIE symposium format is personal, informative and friendly. It will be a great opportunity for your company to showcase your products, connect with other experts and interact with potential talent for your recruitment needs. Our aim is to present a mix of both world class use of OSGeo, FOSS4G and other open source tools whilst showcasing Irish talent and expertise in this space.
OSGeoIE brings in professional users of OSGeo software and FOSS4G from academia, industry and local and national government. In the previous years we have had participants from almost all major Irish entities: Ordnance Survey, Environmental Protection Agency, Coillte and local councils and others. We also encourage third level students to attend and offer student ticket options.
Sponsorship (both packages) and a stall or booth (Gold package only) present an opportunity to connect directly with the delegates attending OSGeoIE 2019. The skill set of OSGeoIE delegates are rarely limited to GIS-related software and tools only. Many delegates are experienced researchers, scientists, policy makers, planners, software developers, etc. With the gold sponsorship package you will get two tickets to the conference and a dedicated booth in the event space. We believe that this a fantastic value for your investment. In both cases sponsorship of OSGeoIE 2019 provides opportunities to meet the Irish OSGeo community, publicise job openings and network.
There are two sponsorship packages available:
OSGeoIE 2019 Gold (€500): Logo (banner) on all OSGeoIE 2019 related websites. Specific mentions/shares on Twitter. Booth space at OSGeoIE 2019 to support demos, face-to-face meetings and distribution of promotional materials to delegates. 2 X OSGeoIE Tickets
OSGeoIE 2019 Silver (€250): Logo (banner) on all OSGeoIE 2019 related websites. Promotional material can be distributed from the registration desk. 1 X OSGeoIE Ticket
