Sponsorship

DrupalCamp LA is an annual free Drupal community event, one of the largest in North America, bringing developers, themers, administrators and business people together for a weekend of professional development, fostering the Drupal community, and team building. The goal of DrupalCamp LA is to bring together the fun, smart, and open Drupal minds in the community. People learn, teach, and share. Our style might be similar to a DrupalCon, if not better with each year being free+cheap. Consider this a mini-con. ;-)

Sponsors provide us with the support each year needed to put on such an event. Are you using Drupal or looking to hire Drupal developers? Become a sponsor and help our community grow.

It's easy: just create your sponsor node, and then you can pay on-line or by check.

Please note: we are sorry that your event sponsorship is no longer considered a tax-deductible gift to the University.

Why sponsor?

If this is your first time sponsoring our annual camp, picture this: You benefit directly from Drupal and its strong community. Help build an even stronger community, resulting in a better Drupal. DrupalCamp LA is run completely by volunteers. We shoot video and offer it all free online. DrupalCon charges $500 for a ticket; we want to be an event everyone can attend, and we try hard to keep attendee costs dramatically low - usually free.

Our sponsors really help make it all happen. Your backing lets us pay for the necessary costs. If you are a returning sponsor: Thank you!

What do Sponsors get out of it?

Simple. How about this: You support us, we support you. We feel it behooves everyone to know who stepped up to help make this event a reality. We do our best to make sure the community knows you gave back.

This year we plan to offer tables for sponsors, in our registration & information room. We cannot hang anything on the walls, but digital graffiti is encouraged. You're welcome to distribute materials, small give-aways, etc.; if you need to bring equipment, banners or another type of display, the University will require an insurance waiver (we can provide more info on this). If you have any questions, please contact us after reviewing our sponsor packages below. Note: these offerings are subject to change.
