As we think about how to do this better, we might want to think of what supplies we used/didn't use,




Here's what our sponsors get

  • You'll get 5 guaranteed invites to the conference that you can distribute to whoever you'd like (the conference is full at present).


Our Sponsor Needs


We've currently fulfilled our sponsor needs for BarCampRDU. This means we've secured sponsorship for all of our day-of costs, as well as for the pre-event. Orgininally, I had thought about doing a post-event dinner, but now I think that might just be too much work. If somone feels strongly otherwise, please let me know.
