Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions - Sponsors

Q: What levels of sponsorship do you offer, and How does a company become a sponsor?

A: Please contact sponsors@cloudslam.org to discuss available packages.

Q: I’ve been a sponsor for last event. Do you have a continuity partner program discount?

A: Our remit is to build long term, collaborations with key players in the Cloud space.

If you are are an existing client and would like to discuss sponsoring our 2014 event again this year, please contact sponsors@cloudslam.org today.

Q: If signed up, but unable to participate, can we transfer it to the next event?

A: Inventories are tight and time is short, so we are only accepting commitments for our CS’14 event. If this is outside your scope, we encourage you to sign up to next event instead.

Q: What are the advantages of becoming a sponsor vs just exhibitor?

A: We are striving to satisfy our clients and provide more value!
We can provide unprecedented impact and generate huge levels of brand awareness, visibility and exposure. Additionally, sponsors have right of first acceptance on headline and keynote inventories - which are prime time sessions that reach the peak and prime levels of attendance.

Also, sponsors can benefit from highly desirable lead / demand generation deliverables which yield invaluable, quantifiable and measurable ROI. We have different levels of sponsor packages designed with your budget, outcome and objectives in mind. We can work with you to determine which package best fits your needs and capabilities. We can also work with you to define a tailored approach, to ensure that we secure the natural fit for you.

To find out more about our sponsorship opportunities entail, please contact sponsors@cloudslam.org

Q: What do you look for in sponsor presentations?

A: Sponsor presentations must be on-topic in keeping with the theme of the conference scope. Being a sponsor does not mean that you can present a Sales and marketing pitch. Cloud Slam attendees and members of the community are looking to our sponsors to bring thought leadership to the topic. We find that sponsors who bring a thought-provoking topic expert resonate best with our members and the broader cloud community.

Q: What are other ways for Sponsors to push their message?

A: We offer a dedicated Cloud content portal - Vertical Cloud where we offer all materials from our live events, special interviews, articles, and videos featuring members, regular written and video blog entries updating members on developments in Cloud Computing. As part of our content proliferation program, we offer sponsors the opportunity to distribute content to our members through our website and to event attendees / registrants. This gives sponsors the chance to share with our members through white papers, checklists, videos, etc.

Q: How many people attend your events?

A:We have seen incremental growth event over event, year over year. Currently we see around 400 - 500 high caliber attendees attend in person, with in excess of 20,000 attendees tuning in virtually.
