Do you want to be a sponsor? Please contact us. You can include your flyer in our welcome bag, put a poster on a wall or have a table to present your products.

The money sponsored by companies is appreciated and used to pay for common costs and allows us to offer more or better hosting to the group. For example to pay the dinner on the evening before the conference.

One way to sponsor is to pay for an additional ticket. We can than assign it to a student or a member of the community who can't pay a ticket himself/herself, so more people have a chance to come to the conference.

Video only ticket

If you can't attend in person, you can still ask for a video only ticket.

It costs the same as a regular ticket and we grant you access to all the materials from Koblenz 2016 as well as Berlin 2017. This includes slides, audio and video recordings.

There will be no live broadcasts and we don't guarantee any availability of videos/audios or their quality.
