Next up: EclipseCon 2014

EclipseCon Europe / OSGi Community Event Sponsor Prospectus

Welcome to the sponsor prospectus page! Last year's EclipseCon Europe / OSGi Community Event was a great success. As the conference continued to grow, we had the largest attendance ever (560). The attendees enjoyed our best EclipseCon to date (via the ratings in our survey) and the feedback from sponsors was very positive as well.

With our experienced program committee, we expect to be one of the most valuable technical conferences in Europe again this year, attracting the best people from the Eclipse and OSGi ecosystems as well as young professionals and academics. The planned social gatherings will make sure that the fun and networking will continue to be an important part of the conference. Please join us as a sponsor – we need your support to make the 2013 conference a success!

The information below describes the basics. We have other options available, and we would like to hear your ideas! Please contact us to discuss sponsorship opportunities at EclipseCon Europe 2013.
