A note about employee tickets

Space at !!Con is limited, so we humbly request that these tickets go to employees of your company who will really enjoy the subject matter of the talks. What that means will depend on the company, but it’s likely to mean programmer/engineer employees or programming enthusiasts.


Attendees really remember the names of sponsors of the unique elements of !!Con, so these are a great way to stand out! If these interest you, get in touch and we can talk about including them in your sponsorship package.

  • Live streaming and recording. All of !!Con’s talks are broadcast in real time to viewers around the world; we’ve even heard of groups organizing “!!Con watch parties”! We also record and upload all of !!Con’s talks for anyone to watch on YouTube. Having your organization’s name associated with streaming and video-on-demand is the sponsorship gift that keeps on giving!

  • Live captioning. !!Con aims to be a radically inclusive conference, and one of the most visible ways that we act on that is by hiring a captioner to transcribe each speaker in realtime. Our experience is that captioning is useful not just to audience members with disabilities, but to everyone, giving people more options to engage with our amazing speakers. If accessibility is important to your organization, a great way to demonstrate that is by having your name displayed right alongside the caption feed all day long, and we’d love to offer that to you!

  • Sponsor a meal. Lunch and snack breaks have been some of the most exciting parts of !!Cons, when attendees come together and “unconference” – not to mention getting the joy of getting to fill your stomach after a morning of invigorating talks! Our experience at conferences is that everybody remembers who fed them, and sponsor-associated food has been a big hit in the past.

If you have other ideas, we’d love to hear about them and work with you – feel free to contact us!
