Sponsoring DebConf 16

We have some great sponsors for DebConf 16 already, but sadly we don’t have any local sponsors yet. Sponsorship is open to all, but if you know of a South African company in particular who might be interested, then feel free to send them a copy of the DebConf 16 Sponsorship Brochure which contains all the options and how to get in touch with the sponsorship team.

Sponsoring DebConf has never been more accessible to South African companies so if you’d like to get your company name on the Debian map and get some great exposure, then this is the perfect opportunity!
