Intervention can help you get the word out about your company, product, event, or any other information you’d like to disseminate to our tech, art, and geek oriented community. We have many sponsorship opportunities that place your information directly in front of the entire attendance of the event, as well as online here on our website and across the web itself through our media and promotional outreach efforts.
Our Sponsorship levels start at the affordable price of $500.00, and can scale higher to more directly tie your message to certain aspects of the con, or even as the “presenter” of the entire event itself.
We have a handy PDF with all of the details of our different sponsorship levels and their associated benefits available for immediate download:
Once you’ve read the document you can easily contact us using the contact form lower on this page (or through any of the other contact avenues outlined in the document). We’ll be happy to provide any information or clarifications, or work toward a customized sponsorship package tailored directly to your needs.
