Please provide a high-resolution outlined vector logo (.ai or .eps format) by Friday, April 14 to ensure your logo will display clearly on all onsite branding.

Editorial Interview and Article on Linux.com

Increase awareness of company news/stories by working with The Linux Foundation on an interview and article that will be posted on Linux.com within one month of the event (Linux.com receives over 1 million unique visitors each month). Please view the Linux.com Sponsor Guidelines for full details and timelines.

In order to maximize the value of event sponsorship articles for promoting an event and its sponsors, we recommend that articles publish at least two to three weeks in advance of the event date. In order to guarantee this, sponsors must settle on a topic and format for the article no later than five weeks in advance of the scheduled event (in this case Monday, April 24).

For a Q&A article, interviews with a sponsor company’s chosen representative must be conducted no later than three weeks in advance of the scheduled event (in this case Monday, May 8). After these milestones have passed, we will do our best to publish in advance but cannot guarantee it. All event sponsor articles will be published no later than one month after the event has concluded.

Please contact Libby Clark at lclark@linuxfoundation.org to finalize the details for your interview and article.

 

15-Minute Keynote Speaking Opportunity

Diamond sponsors have the opportunity to present a 15-minute keynote at the conference pending Program Committee approval and The Linux Foundation signoff on content. Please work directly with Jillian Hall, our Event Content Manager, to finalize all details for your speaking opportunity. The initial information that is needed is: speaker name/bio, talk title, abstract. For inquiries, please contact Jillian at jhall@linuxfoundation.org.
