The sponsorship deadline for iOSDevCamp 2013 is Friday, July 5th, 2013. If you’re interested in sponsoring, please fill in the sponsor form and we will be in touch shortly.
Also, we are taking prize donations for the Hackathon. Prize donations are open to anyone, not just sponsors. If you have a prize you would like to donate to the Hackathon, please contact us. Thank you.
We need your help to make iOSDevCamp 2013 a success.
100% of sponsor and attendee fees go directly to event production. As a not-for-profit, volunteer-based event team, all money is used for the event, never for individuals or profit. Any money left over from the event is allocated to the next event.
Sponsoring iOSDevCamp 2013 will provide your organization with the opportunity to be part of the largest iOS developer event outside of Apple’s own Worldwide Developer Conference.
iOSDevCamp 2013 will be the 7th not-for-profit iOS oriented event produced by the iPhoneDevCamp team. This includes six prior annual iPhoneDevCamp events, and iPadDevCamp, which was held in early 2010. At our events each year, 500 or so iOS developers gather over a long weekend to develop apps, share knowledge, network with their peers, and learn about the latest technologies. This time, we’ve rebranded our event iOSDevCamp to encourage iPhone and iPad development (as well as web apps!). This is an opportunity for organizations such as yours to interact with the leading iOS developers. These are the influencers in our market. While we don’t yet know the attendance numbers for iOSDevCamp 2013, we are planning for more than 500 attendees.
Coupled with influencer interaction, we expect iOSDevCamp 2013 to attract strong media attention, as with our prior events, as you can see on our Press page.
We’re actively looking for additional sponsors to help make iOSDevCamp 2013 a success. Running an event is expensive, and sponsors play an important role in making this event happen.
This is the fifth time that we have included a registration fee for attendees ($50), which will be used to help offset some of the costs to operate the event. Half of the costs to the operate the event are contributed by attendees, the other half from sponsors.
We need your help.
We are asking for a minimum commitment of $1,000. Sponsors who give more will be given increased visibility at the event. While we don’t have official tier levels, we provide larger dollar amount sponsors with increased logo sizes on sponsor banners and posters, top billing on the website, more speaking time during intros, primary table space near the stage, and additional tickets for staff. We are aiming for 10-20 sponsors this year.
As a BarCamp-style event, 100% of sponsor dollars go to the event production. This is a not-for-profit event (the organizers and volunteers do not get paid).
In prior years, we have accepted giveaways from sponsors as a form of sponsorship. While we are accepting giveaways this year, we will not be accepting giveaways in lieu of a cash sponsorship. Sponsors who are only able to provide giveaways will be thanked during the contest results on Sunday, but will not be eligible for the sponsor benefits listed below. If you do have giveaway ideas for the contest, please consider coupling that with a cash sponsorship of $1,000 or more for greater visibility at the event.
iOSDevCamp 2013 Sponsors receive:
- Listing on the event website – link in right nav, logo and link on Sponsors page (this page)
- Logo on sponsor signage at the event
- Logo displayed on overhead during portions of the event
- Speaking time at the event (short intros)
- Guaranteed attendance for two sponsor representatives at the event (more for larger sponsorship amounts)
- Table space at the event for handouts, signage, meetings, etc.
There is no organization running iOSDevCamp 2013, just a group of organizers and volunteers. We’re asking for financial commitments now, with payment required before we list organizations as sponsors.
