Sponsorship

Our first Reconnect conference in Sydney last year was a great success and we've love to have some top notch sponsors again for Reconnect.Brisbane in September this year.

Between the four companies organising this year's conference, we have been exhibitors and sponsors at dozens of DevCons, Engage and numerous other FileMaker conferences. We know what makes it worthwhile for exhibitors and we want to balance that against making sure the content is also valuable for attendees.

As an independent conference organising committee we have more options available to us such as including printed or promotional materials in the packs given to attendees, and sharing approved attendee mailing list data.

Our three levels of sponsorship are the "Standard" which is a just the basics option, plus Premium and a one off Event sponsor.
But what we're really focusing on is Premium package where each sponsor is matched to a single session. We think this is a great way to connect with exhibitors and is unlike anything done at other conferences. It's a great way to get the attention of 100% of attendees and deliver value for everyone.

We may end up with more sponsors interested than slots available, so please get in touch as soon as possible with Nick Orr (nick@reconnect.fm) to confirm your interest.

Premium Sponsorship (includes standard Sponsorship) - 10 Available

AUD750/USD500/EUR475

We have the same number of premium sponsors as sessions and so each sponsor is thanked as the sole sponsor for this session.
Keynote slides will say "this session is sponsored by your company". This includes 2-3 minutes of time after the session dedicated to the sponsor, where you can choose to present your products direct to 100% of the audience ( we only run a single session track ). In this time you can:
  • Come along in person and present.
  • Have a pre-recorded video that the presenter shows.
  • Have preset slides that the presenter shows.
  • Have a demo that you want the presenter to run.
  • Plus you could also:
    • Do a one off giveaway/raffle of a gift or free product.
    • Do a quick survey
    • Promote a conference special.
We really want to offer sponsors some dedicated time with our audience and we feel like these short sessions are a great way to get the attention of 100% of the conference audience for your company. There will only be 10 available sponsored sessions and we will make sure your brand and your message is brought to the audience.
