Thank you for sponsoring ProductCamp. Your sponsorship helps ensure a quality program for attendees, and provides visibility for your brand with Boston’s largest single gathering of product managers, product marketers and entrepreneurs, and the second largest ProductCamp in the world.

Please review this carefully to ensure a smooth process, and since we have made several changes from last year.

MATERIAL DUE DATE: FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2016

Once you have committed to sponsoring ProductCamp Boston, we will email you login information so you can upload logos and PowerPoint slides directly into your dedicated “Sponsor Central” folder (see below). If you run into problems, please email us at productcampboston@gmail.com.

Following are details on the materials we will need from you to ensure that you get maximum benefit from your ProductCamp sponsorship. Please upload materials by the material due date above. The sooner we receive your materials, the sooner we can begin to promote your organization.

  • Rotating display (rolling monitor) slide (1 slide in each of 2 templates) – Use Templates #1 and #2 to create single slide “advertisement” for our rotating presentations. These slides will be shown on monitor throughout the event. Because we use two different monitors, you must create your slides using each of the special templates. Platinum and Gold sponsors only.
  • Intro slide (1 slide) – This single slide will be shown on a large projector in the main presentation area prior to the start of ProductCamp, and during the 60-second intro for each Platinum sponsor. Provide a simple advertisement-style slide about your company and/or product. Please use Template #3. Platinum sponsors only.
