Special meeting to discuss conference sponsorship levels with GUADEC and GNOME.Asia organizing teams.



Shaun's notes on sponsorship levels

Here's the last two years of sponsorship levels at GUADEC and GNOME.Asia, along with the sponsors at those levels:

GUADEC 2015 was listed in euros instead of dollars. By today's rates, the €15000 platinum level is in the ballpark of $17000.

As you can see, nobody comes in at the platinum level for either conference. Google and Red Hat have consistently done gold for GUADEC, but are spottier for GNOME.Asia.

The Karlsruhe bid is counting on €32000 in sponsorship. If we price exactly as in 2015, and if Google and Red Hat come in at the gold level, and if Igalia and SuSE come in at bronze again, and if we manage at least one bronze, we're good.

In dollars, but in the ballpark of GUADEC 2015:

That gives a nice $5000 delta between each. If we keep GNOME.Asia levels the same as the last two years:

Now the question is, how much of a discount do we give for doing both at once? 10% rounded to 1000s?

Is that even worthwhile? Higher discount? I don't know. I've never done multi-event discounts before.

As for bronze, set it at some arbitrary low level, and I wouldn't bother offering a combined rate for it.
