Targeted Sponsorship opportunities

Speaker's Travel Sponsor

This gives the sponsor the right to be introduced at the conference as having funded speaker's travel grants for the conference. Additionally, speakers who receive such grants will be informed as part of the travel booking process that their travel has been sponsored by your firm.


Parent's Room Sponsor

This year linux.conf.au seeks to encourage diversity amongst our delegates by offering a parents room as well as free childcare for delegates. Sponsoring this would give your firm signage rights at the entrance to these facilities, as well as a logo on relevant delegate paperwork.


Lanyard Sponsor

linux.conf.au seeks expressions of interest in providing branded lanyards for delegates badges.
