Benefits of Sponsoring a BarCamp


BarCamp Manchester is coming to 2015 off the back of a very successful event in 2014, and this only means that we can expect more people, and more hype this time round.

Everyone knows that attending exhibitions and conferences is a great way to network, make new connections, and meet potential new clients, so why not extend that to actually sponsoring the event? We have a variety of sponsorship levels to suit all budgets, and we have so much that we can offer you.

Sponsoring a BarCamp can help you build credibility with your target audience. By taking a stand at the event and being able to display your logo around the venue we can help you build brand recognition and stand out from the crowd in front of up to 300 attendees from tech community. Sponsors will also have the opportunity to provided branded merchandise for all our attendees to take home and show all their other tech minded friends and colleagues who may not have been able to attend the event. We can also help to increase your media exposure, as all sponsors will be featured on our promotional materials, including our website, posters, social media accounts, tickets and mailers, and don’t forget, we have many more people we can reach out to by social media and mailing lists as well as those in actual attendance.

We also encourage our sponsors to get really involved in the event itself, to make the most of the opportunity. All our sponsors are encouraged to provided branded ‘swag’ for attendees, we require a multitude of items, and if your logo isn’t featured prominently, then someone else’s might be. It’s also up to you how to make your presence stand out, a well branded sponsorship table with a good reason for attendees to visit it goes a long way! If you decide to come on board as a sponsor, we can help you get the most of your package over the course of the weekend, and as an added bonus, if you have a product or service that can be utilised at BarCamp then we can help you gain direct exposure in the lead up to or during the event!
