Why Sponsor


Sponsors of Everything Open have a unique opportunity to globally promote their brand to a large number of influential industry professionals. One of the world’s best free and open source technology conferences, Everything Open is regularly attended by over 600 delegates, more than half of whom attend as Professional Delegates. Delegates travel from all over the world for a week of thought provoking keynotes from our internationally recognised invited speakers, high quality presentations and tutorials from the makers of these technologies, and connecting with other delegates in both organised networking sessions and spontaneous encounters in the hallways.

Agreeing to sponsor Everything Open 2024 early is important. The earlier you sign a sponsorship agreement, and we have a purchase order completed, the more time we can spend promoting your sponsorship.

Diversity and Inclusion

Everything Open aims to be an inclusive event which welcomes diverse groups from all parts of the FLOSS (Free, Libre, Open Source Software) community to an environment of respect, tolerance, and encouragement. Everything Open has an enforced Code of Conduct, with all complaints treated confidentially and seriously.

Additional Sponsorship Opportunities

Conference sponsors have the opportunity to contribute in a more targeted way on top of their general sponsorship. There are a number of additional packages available, each with limited availability.

Video Sponsor

The sponsor will be introduced at the conference as having funded video streaming to delegates. Talks will be uploaded for later viewing by delegates and our wider community, and the video sponsor will have their logo included in the title slide.

Outreach and Inclusion Sponsor

Contribute directly to increasing the diversity of the free and open source technology community by sponsoring our Outreach and Inclusion Programme. This programme reaches out to diverse delegates, from a variety of backgrounds, throughout the community. Outreach and inclusion sponsorship supports delegates from diverse backgrounds who have a significant contribution to make, but would otherwise be unable to attend Everything Open.

Catering Sponsor

Contribute directly to the catering of the conference. Morning and Afternoon Tea breaks will be catered, and your company will be mentioned as the sponsor of the food for that break.

In-Kind Sponsorship

Organisations that make a substantial material contribution to the organisation of the conference are entitled to be listed as in-kind sponsors of the conference. In-kind sponsors will be noted at the opening and closing plenary sessions of the conference, and will have their logo on the Sponsors page on the conference website. Potential opportunities for in-kind sponsorship include:

Benefits of in-kind sponsorship will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We’d love to hear about what you have in mind, just email sponsorship@everythingopen.au.
