We Our Sponsors

Sponsorship Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring AutomaCon 2.0. Sponsorship opportunities are limited, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Additionally, sponsors will be promoted on the AutomaCon website and corresponding promotional materials based on the order in which they are fulfilled, so don't hesitate — review the Sponsorship Prospectus now!

Diversity Scholarship

AutomaCon recognizes that a strong community consists of a diverse collection of people. Conference attendance should not be a privilege limited to those who can personally afford to be present, or whose employers provide compensation for participation. As such, AutomaCon is committed to offering diversity scholarships to cover admission and travel expenses for members of our community who could not otherwise attend. The $1,500 Diversity Scholarship pays for admission + reimbursement for up-to $1,000 in travel expenses.

New for 2016

Feedback from the AutomaCon 1.0 sponsors was so positive that we didn't want to make too many changes for this year. As a result, all of our sponsorship packages from last year have returned along with a new sponsorship tier, and a discount for repeat sponsors.
