Fwd: Need help with Call for Sponsors - pretty-please with honey on it?
Thank you to those who has responded to our JUC t-shirt design. We'll keep Mr. Jenkins' image simple, yet easily recognizable.
We once again are asking for the community's help to drum up attendance, and sponsorship to our JUCs. Pls see Lisa's email below with details to sponsorship. We are positive with the community's help we'll be able to attract more awareness and visibility to Jenkinsci.
Thank you in advance for your help.

We need your help to find sponsors for our FOUR JUCs! Paris is only 2 months away, and NY is only 3 months out. The events will be so much better with financial and promotional support from many avenues (not to mention extra attendance!)... so we need the help of the community to generate the buzz.
Could you please please... 1) Ask your own company if they will sponsor? (if they say no, extol the virtues of how great it was last year...) 2) If you know other folks who might be interested, pass along the info by email?
3) Tweet the Call for Sponsors/ post to Facebook? 4) Make some noise in the Jenkins community (twitter, blog, FB, etc, and specifically ask for sponsors)?
I want to
invite you to co-sponsor the Jenkins User Conference 2012 (JUC) with CloudBees.
Our inaugural conference last October at JavaOne was such a huge success that
it year it will visit 4 cities:
For the October 2011 JUC, more than 400 people registered - and about 250
people showed up - for a two-track day of sessions by Jenkins experts. You can
see what attendees said about it, watch the talks, and check out the schedule in this video.
A few benefits of sponsoring:
- Support the vibrant Jenkins community and garner community goodwill
- Have a physical presence - you get your own table and can hand out whatever
- Speaking opportunity in front of 100-300 developers, managers, dev-ops folks,
architects, and others (silver sponsors and above)
- Access to attendee list (gold sponsors and above)
- Get your company's name out all over the place - tons of pre-conference
publicity with Jenkins community, CloudBees website and lists, forums, etc.
per-conference sponsorship price goes down the more conferences you sponsor:
$7,000 for 1
$12,500 for 2
$18,000 for 3
$23,500 for 4
$5,000 for 1
$9,000 for 2
$13,000 for 3
$17,000 for 4
$3,000 for 1
$5,500 for 2
$8,000 for 3
$10,500 for 4
$1,500 for 1
$2,750 for 2
