Sponsorships for the Evergreen International Conference 2009

You’re invited to help sponsor the first-ever international conference for Evergreen open source library automation software.

The Evergreen Conference, jointly coordinated by Georgia Public Library Service, Equinox Software and SOLINET, will take place May 20-22, 2009 at the Classic Center in downtown Athens, Georgia—an attractive university town just one hour from Atlanta, the native home of Evergreen, originally developed by Georgia Public Library Service and now in use in nearly 300 libraries around the world.

The conference will bring together up to 150 users, developers, stakeholders and other interested parties to learn, share and network about Evergreen. This two-day conference, preceded by a developers’ "hackfest" preconference, is an ideal opportunity for to showcase your company and build product awareness with library decision-makers.

Why Sponsor?

We have structured a variety of participation levels and opportunities for every marketing budget. All sponsorship options are designed to offer vendors significant value and exposure to an active, engaged community represented by many product recommenders and decision-makers.

A very popular event will be the combined reception and vendor exhibit 5:30-7:30 Wednesday, May 20, at the Classic Center. This no-conflict, two-hour event combines networking and free food and drink for Evergreen conference attendees.

Another key event will be the Breakfast Talk Tables on Friday, May 22. Sponsors are invited to host conversations over breakfast—a relaxed way to share product information with conference attendees. Clearly-marked signage will help attendees find the table you are hosting.

For more information, please contact mailto:events@evergreen-ils.org.
