ISVCon, the Software Industry Conference, is now opening sponsor registration for the 2013 conference.
About the Conference Sponsorship Options Become a Sponsor/Exhibitor
ISVCon 2013 will once again be held at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada. The Atlantis, a 4-Star hotel, was recently awarded the prestigious 4-Diamond rating. It has a beautiful, modern conference area, with a large, comfortable, and surprisingly quiet foyer overlooking the casino. The property includes 9 restaurants and 10 lounges, and a cabaret with live entertainment. It is also just a 10-minute ride from the Reno airport via the Atlantis’ free airport shuttle.
Reno is located in Northern Nevada, a wonderful area with lots to do both inside and outside of the casinos. Reno is just 15 miles from the California border, and is a popular weekend vacation destination for Northern California residents.
New Dates, Days, and Options
ISVCon 2013 will be held September 27-29. The conference will run for 2-1/2 days, Friday through mid-day Sunday. We’re hoping to attract lots of new faces, given that Reno is within driving distance for San Francisco/Silicon Valley, and we are also planning to do considerable marketing.
Our existing Sponsorship levels, prices, and benefits received an update this year. Our Silver Sponsorship is priced at $1299 and includes 2 free conference registrations; our Gold Sponsorship is priced at $2599 and includes 4 free conference registrations and a free Sponsor Table; while our Platinum Sponsorship is priced at $4999 and includes 8 free conference registrations, and 2 free Sponsor Tables.

Also, we’ve added a new Sponsorship option this year! Our new “MISV” sponsorship level was added by request, for those industry participants who don’t necessarily want to exhibit, but simply want to attend and show their support for the event. This new sponsorship level is priced at just $599, and like our other sponsorship levels, it includes a variety of perks and benefits. See our Sponsorship Options page for more information about this new sponsorship level.
Sponsor Tables Instead of Break Room Booths or Hospitality Suites
You may notice that instead of having “Break Room Booths” or “Hospitality Suites” we now offer the availability of Sponsor Tables. These Sponsor Tables will be set up in the main foyer/break room area of the conference, which is located directly in the path of the session and lunch rooms… meaning that each and every conference attendee must pass through this area in order to get to any of the presentations, breakfasts, or lunches! The break room is also where all the snacks and refreshments will be located, so the attendees will congregate there between events and sessions. The Sponsor Table concept was added by request from previous sponsors, and will include tables and chairs rather than pre-defined “exhibit booth” style areas. This area will be open for attendees during the entire conference schedule, and will also be part of the Welcome Reception and other special events during the conference. Sponsor Table spaces are limited, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Your sponsorship of ISVCon will help support this long-standing industry conference, and give you an opportunity to meet with both experienced ISVs and start-ups in a new, exciting, and professional setting. The sooner you sign up as a sponsor, the sooner your logo/ad box will be displayed on the ISVCon website for visitors to see. Early sponsorship also helps support the conference financially, and is appreciated. And, early sponsorship allows you to receive primary placement for your Sponsor Table areas, which have limited availability and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please consider supporting ISVCon with your sponsorship. To become an ISVCon sponsor, just follow the instructions at our Become a Sponsor page. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you.
Sponsor Manager, ISVCon
P.S. Attendee registration is ongoing, so signing up for sponsorship right away will insure that your company logo/ad will be displayed on the ISVCon website as more attendees come to register.
