  4. 4. Contact Dave Vankat (dvankat@aimforbrilliance.org) for inquiries Sponsorship Levels At HDC we limit the number of available sponsorships.

We strive to build an event that is as relevant to the developer community as possible. To do this, we offer two primary levels of participation including: PARTNER and SPONSOR. We also offer two exclusive sponsorships: WIFI-TAKEOVER and MOBILE APP. All levels of sponsorship offer a ton of value and each level is described within the following pages.

  9. 9. Contact Dave Vankat (dvankat@aimforbrilliance.org) for inquiries Final Note.. Thank you so much for continuing to support the HDC event and our local software design and development community. Sponsors allow us to produce one of the country’s top developer conferences right in our own backyard. As a reminder, we do provide preference to previous sponsors and most come back year over year. Once this packet is released, we give last year’s sponsors two weeks to respond before we open it up to new sponsors. We typically fill our sponsorships very quickly so we encourage you to commit sooner than later if you’re interested. Each year we have at least a couple unhappy organizations that delay in committing and lose out because someone comes in behind them. Lastly, please feel free to contact Dave Vankat with any questions. Thanks. Joe Olsen, Dave Vankat, and Dave Coover Co-Conference Directors HDC14
