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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
