Sponsorship Prospectus

 

Last year’s conference was a great success. The partnership between Eclipse and OSGi brought deeper content, more attendees, new sponsors, and a variety of special demos and exhibits that enhanced the experience for everyone.

This year will provide even more value for sponsors and attendees, attracting the best speakers and thinkers from the Eclipse and OSGi ecosystems as well as young professionals, academics, and researchers. The planned social gatherings will make sure that the fun and networking continue as an important part of the conference.

Please join us as a sponsor – we need your support to make the 2014 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 for 2014.
