What is the value of participating in this event?
We believe everyone will find value in joining us for the high-quality content that is expected from a KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event. Our open source communities inspire us to be resilient – to adapt and thrive with speed and consideration, immersed in the goal of bringing together a distributed group of people from around the globe. It’s in the DNA of the open source community to connect, learn, and collaborate. What better place to do so than one of the premier open source developer conferences in the world? The in-person format of this event provides sponsors with the opportunity for deep conversations and personal connections with customers, business partners, and prospects.

When will access to the sponsor portal (ERC) be provided? 
We are looking to provide access to confirmed sponsors by mid-July so you can get started on planning your deliverables. Our sponsor services team will be in touch with updates as we get closer to the event. 

What information will be provided in the leads report that sponsors receive? 
Included in sponsor reports are the names, job titles, company names, email addresses, and physical work addresses (if provided) of all attendees who got their name badge scanned at the sponsor’s onsite booth.
