Make the Most of Your Sponsorship

As a LinkedData Planet sponsor you have the unique opportunity to be seen and approached as a mainstream solutions provider at this unique industry gathering. The conference is for YOU also! We’ve staggered the functions in the exhibit area so focused selling time can be maintained in conjunction with your attendance at keynotes and the conference sessions. Your face-to-face time doesn’t end in the exhibit area, make the most of each session to get next to the professionals you are targeting.

The schedule outline will include functions marked “In Exhibit Area” should be considered “Exhibit Time.” All other sessions and functions you can attend and are NOT required to be at your booth, however we encourage you to be available inside your booth/kiosk space as attendees flow past before and after each of the General Sessions.
