  • Being part of the media conversation: As people talk about us they talk about you. Get caught up in the conversation and be part of what people are talking about.
  • Brand recognition and awareness: Depending on the level of sponsorship, you may recognize your brand placement at some or all of the following: t-shirts, signage/lanyards, lunch sessions, or attendee badges. Based on your level of Sponsorship, create and give a 25 or 50 minute session talk where you can speak directly to you target customers in the region.
  • Big Fish in a Small Pond: This community atmosphere brings together active and engaged participants who want to absorb information. Sponsoring the GrrCON event enables you to be that big fish in a smaller pond and better communicate your message to an active audience.
  • Stay in touch with the industry: GrrCON enables its supporters and participants to identify and connect with industry leaders and voices. These participants represent the social networking of security. They are the people who you want to engage to solicit feedback and bring voice to your conversation.
  • Targeted and Direct Audience: You didn’t enter the security industry selling your product to everyone the same way, so why approach events that way? Instead of marketing to the broader “security” community connect directly with the security practioners who write about, talk about, recommend, and implement security products and services.
  • Be associated with the next big thing: Nobody knows what the “next big thing” will be, but these events are community driven with presentations driven by the industry. There is no magic to how it works, but we believe that listening to the underground can help prepare you and help identify what the next big thing might be.
  • This event will provide your organization access to an expected 700-1000 attendees . Attendees will represent fortune 500 companies, multiple government agencies, and local Information Security Professionals. We will also have a significant student presence from the regional universities
