Meetup Sponsorships

The SMKmeetup will have sponsorship opportunities for both physical item donation and cash donations. Your donations will go to making this meetup and future meetups more fun and affordable! Every sponsor will have logo placement on our event page.

Item Sponsorships

As always we're accepting donations for our big giveaway! To make your prize stand out, we reccommend that it be a somewhat bigger ticket item(s).

In addtion to the giveaway, we're also accepting donations for door prizes and for contest prizes. Door prizes should be small and, ideally, in larger quantities. Contest prizes will be awarded to winners of our contests, such as our strongfinger contest. Other contests are TBD.

Please contact us to arrange an item sponsorship.

Cash Sponsorships

In addition to physical sponsorships, you can also support us with a cash donation. This will get you certain benefits depending on the sponsorship level:

  • Group Poster Placement - A poster will be created and placed around the meetup space containing the logos of cash sponsors. The poster and logos will made in a design language similar to our last meetup's shirts. Take-home copies may be available. Limit 30.
