  2. 2. www.SharePointCincy.com SPONSOR / EXHIBITOR INFORMATION 2014
  3. 3. About SharePoint Cincy Do you want to connect with the companies, IT management and staff who use Microsoft SharePoint products and services in the Greater Cincinnati/Kentucky and Dayton/Columbus marketplace? If so, then you want to be a part of this conference where you will network with an incredibly rich and diverse set of potential customers from our region - all in one place. In its fourth year, SharePoint Cincinnati is a must-attend event for many returning sponsors and has been a sold-out conference since it’s inception. RICH, DIVERSE, COMMITTED AUDIENCE • A distinguishing aspect of SharePoint Cincy is the event’s rich audience mix and their commitment to the event – as demonstrated by their paying a registration fee. This diverse attendee mix and strong commitment provides unique benefits for sponsors and attendees. • Nearly 400 professionals from a wide range of companies, industries, and roles have attended past SharePoint Cincy events. The participants from past events came from large Fortune 500 Companies (e.g., P&G, Kroger, Scripps, Great American Insurance Children’s Hospital) as well as small/mid-size companies, they came from all sectors (e.g., Healthcare, Higher Ed, Financial Services, IT services etc.), and they came from a wide variety of IT and business roles – CIO/decision makers, Application Developers, System Admins, Information Architects, Site/Content Owners, and IT Professionals. SharePoint Cincy is held at the NKU METS Center, located only minutes from downtown Cincinnati and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. www.sharepointcincy.com
  4. 4. About SharePoint Cincy STRONG, RELEVANT CONTENT • SharePoint Cincy brings together National and Regional thought leaders, Microsoft Certified Trainers, Microsoft engineers and Microsoft MVPs and MCMs all in one place to present across a wide range of tracks/topics: Creating Business Value, Application Development, Infrastructure/Admin, Enterprise Content Management, Workflows, Business Intelligence, Mobility, Cloud, and Social Networking. • We rigorously screen the breakout session topics/speakers so they are relevant and actionable for participants (no sales pitches). Session topics/speakers are a good mix of real-world case studies presented by “customers” as well as relevant technical sessions presented by “providers”. As an event sponsor, you have the opportunity to submit speaker proposals for one of the scheduled Breakout Sessions. Past speakers include IT Executives from Kroger, Vantiv, Nationwide Insurance, and Wright Patterson Air Force Base as well as leaders from Microsoft Corporate and MVP’s. SharePoint Cincy will be held at the METS Center facility on 6/8/2014. 400 participants are expected to attend this all-day event. We will feature an exhibit hall for promoting your SharePoint-related products and services and there are several other high value/visibility opportunities throughout the event. www.sharepointcincy.com
  5. 5. Become a Sponsor Take advantage of our comprehensive pre-show promotions. With early contracts, your company will get months of valuable exposure and tons of impressions by being associated with our promotional efforts. Nine Great Reasons for Sponsoring SharePoint Cincy 1.

By committing early you enjoy the early bird discount! 3. SharePoint Cincy is easy to staff. The show schedule and layout is arranged to maximize productivity and networking with attendees. 4. You’ll talk to attendees in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Coffee breaks and the reception area are in and next to exhibit hall so you will have plenty of opportunity to meet each attendee. 5. Our concentrated attendance of 400+ SharePoint buyers and influencers means you can spend quality time with each person. 6. SharePoint Cincy is the only SharePoint Conference located in the technology-rich Cincinnati area. 7. Attendees will learn from the brightest minds in the SharePoint community. Many of our speakers are either Microsoft engineers or have achieved MVP status based on their in-depth knowledge of SharePoint. 8.

  16. 16. SharePoint Cincy Speaker Guidelines One of the benefits of being a title, platinum, or gold SharePoint Cincy Sponsor is having priority consideration in submitting speaker proposals. Since it’s inception, SharePoint Cincy has successfully pleased attendees with new, relevant and actionable content delivered in an engaging and educational fashion. Our focus on content means that not every speaker proposal will be a fit and sponsors understand that though we do not guarantee a speaker assignment we will give every proposal due consideration. In addition to keynote speakers from leading National and Regional organizations, we are looking for presenters who have expert credentials in SharePoint and are skilled and experienced communicators. We expect our speakers to clearly present an information-packed session including practical solutions to real world business challenges and/or to teach new skills. Acceptance of your speaker proposal will depend on the timeliness of the topic, relevance, and your experience as a SharePoint expert and/or instructor. Preparation of Submission Please include the following information in your speaker proposal: • • • • • • • • • • Speaker name(s), mailing and email addresses, telephone and cell numbers Title of session, class or workshop Abstract submission, describing the session and what attendees will take away from it Indicate which version of SharePoint you will be discussing or whether it is a general non –version specific presentation Level of session (Introductory, Intermediate or Advanced) List of who the session is geared towards (Business Manager, Analyst, Developer, Administrator, Information Worker, Power User, etc.) Any prerequisites of the proposed session, such as proficiency or specific hands-on experience. Any set-up/technical requirements needed Speaker bio High resolution digital headshot of speaker. Speaker submittals will be accepted starting March 3, 2014. Registered Sponsors will receive submission instructions. www.sharepointcincy.com
