With the XMPP Summit well in progress, there's this one thing we haven't 
really given much attention too: *sponsoring*.

During the XMPP Summit, there are usually two lunches payed for by the 
XMPP Standards Foundation. Similarly, we host the traditional XMPP 
Dinner around the summit. As the XSF's financials are entirely dependent 
on sponsors, we've always asked companies to provide sponsoring for 
these, as well as other costs for getting the Summit and our presence at 
FOSDEM proper, covered.

So we need your help!

Summit Lunches

If your company would like to sponsor the Summit lunches on one or both 
Summit days, please let me know as soon as possible. Practically, it is 
the easiest if you'd be able to pay at the Cisco Canteen directly.

XSF Dinner

If your company would like to sponsor the XSF Dinner, let me know today, 
so we can more easily settle the bill tonight. Note that you don't have 
to pay for everyone, any amount is welcome.

Other Costs

We have already received and accepted the offer of Isode to sponsor the 
van we use to transport our Realtime Lounge materials to and from 
FOSDEM. Many thanks for that!

There are more smaller costs, one with a bill of around € 300, for 
presentation materials at FOSDEM. Please let me know if you'd like to 
pick up to bill for these.

General Sponsoring

Of course sponsors to the XSF's activities in general are very welcome. 
Please have a look at https://xmpp.org/community/sponsors.html for more 
details on those, and contact any Director of the Board if your 
organization would like to sponsor the XSF.

I'm looking forward to the rest of the Summit and FOSDEM, and hope to 
talk to many of you!

Kind regards,

Ralph Meijer
