This is our official Call For Partners, as it is our pleasure to invite you to join us as partners, either sponsors or exhibitors, at the very first Transylvanian edition of YAPC::Europe. All the magic will happen on 24–26 August, 2016 in Cluj-Napoca, at “Iuliu Hațieganu” University of Medicine & Pharmacy, located at 23, Gh. Marinescu street, when our city will officially become the Capital of Perl for 3 days.

YAPC::Europe 2016 is the place to be if you’re in the Perl business. Whether you’re a developer, tester, designer, UX professional, marketer, student, geek or manager, this is where you’ll hear & test the latest Perl trends & meet the most amazing Perl people.

Therefore, we offer 5 sponsorship && exhibition opportunities, as follows: Socialite, Show-Off, Deal-Maker, Rockstar && All-star.

By the way, besides the 5 levels, there are some extra benefits that can be customized depending on your needs & wishes.

We already have 59 registrations (from 20 countries), 17 talk submissions && a couple of companies that already committed to sponsoring the event. Exposure opportunities are great, given that, every year, the conference manages to attract around 300–400 Perl professionals.

Without further ado, we invite you to check out our full presentation && choose the package that best suits your needs.

About Conference

The conference features 3 full days of program, plus a pre-conference training the day before the conference. Besides the obvious technical shenanigans, 4 days of intense Perl (3 days of conference && 1 day of trainings), evenings will be filled with social activities to facilitate networking between all conference attendees, meet up with friends & make the most out of the amazing experience YAPC::EUROPE 2016 is . Ready for the real Transylvanian experience?

So here’s why we should team-up:
· Because it’s one of the best ways for you to create & nurture your relationship with the Perl community. Reach an engaged and international audience.
· Because it’s a great way to show off. Yes, with the right sponsorship level you get to have your own talk slot & make your Perl-based company world-famous.
· Lure all the community to your booth & give away all that swag your marketing team has created. Everybody there will go home with something special from you, their potential service provider or employer.
· Spot real talent. YAPC brings together all the best engineers, all those CPAN authors & hard-core developers you look up to & want to have in your team.

All in all, we’d say it’s an amazing way to join a very special journey & support the Perl community on its quest to show the world how amazing, reliable, fast & secure this language is. Big players in the industry use Perl extensively, #justsayin’

We’re looking for partners, companies like yours, so together we can make YAPC::EUROPE one of the most sought-after technical event in Europe & not only. It’s a wonderful programming language with a wonderful community, let’s make it THE tech event everybody’s looking forward to.
