Quality Inn Daytona Speedway 80-90$ #3 of 103 2.4 miles

Airport options

Airports to look at DAB - Daytona Beach International - Connects thru Atlanta on Delta, Charolette NC on American Airlines, and JFK from Jet Blue this might help with connections ideas:

DAB is super easy in/out 5 minutes away from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, actually the college is situated off the runway for the flight school. Here are the other airports that might be cheaper on the surface, but between having to commute another hour plus the extra time dealing with the airports...DAB is probably $200 more to fly in/out of, but you save hours of transportation time and costs. Of course if you are hitting Disney World while you are here or something, then fly out of Orlando or Sanford. Or Kennedy Space Center which is an hour South, you could fly out of Melbourne FL or again Orlando. MCO is the main Orlando airport and probably has the "cheapest flights" because of the volume, but security takes a good bit of time, and typically you need to check in 90 minutes early, and traffic in Orlando can build quickly.

SFB is about 50 minutes South West and typically has good deals on Allegiant Airlines (no-frills)

MCO is about 90 minutes West in Orlando FL

JAX is about 90 minutes North in Jacksonville FL

Participants should plan for the following costs:

  • Travel to Daytona Beach
  • Accommodation for four nights (including breakfast)

All other costs - food, outings and entertainment - should/will be covered by the sponsors


Detailled budget

Individual preparation

  • Bring your own laptop
  • Install GIT and compiler tools, and come with a working development environment
  • If your laptop need it, video export adapter to DVI and/or VGA
  • Optional: something to take pictures (camera, smartphone, small tablet...)


We have three sponsorship levels:

  • Gold: >= 2500 USD
  • Silver: 1500 USD
  • Bronze: 750 USD

We encourage sponsors to support nutriment and entertainment for the sprinters as they work hard and play hard for four or five productive days. Contributions will be put towards lunch, snacks, and dinner costs for the sprinters, and potentially bringing in sprinters who might otherwise be unable to attend. Any surplus at the end of the event will be turned over to OSGeo or used for a future code sprint.

Sponsors will receive the following:

  • Your logo at the top of this page
  • Mention in all of our public communication
  • Our undying gratitude, which comes in handy when you least expect it (Remember that feature you wanted...)
  • And as extra, for Silver and Gold: Kakemono in the event room (if you provide it)

To sponsor, please contact xxx directly.
