Will There Be a PrDC Regina This Year?

You may have heard that the next Prairie Dev Con will be in Winnipeg March 2 – 3, 2015. But what about Regina?

I would love to do a Prairie Dev Con in Regina this June! For that to happen though I need at least 5 Gold-level sponsors to come on board before I book the venue and open the call for speakers.

There are many benefits to conference sponsorship in addition to the traditional name/logo recognition on marketing material, including…

  • Complimentary Passes and Special Sponsor Pricing
  • Booth Space
  • Vendor Sessions
  • Post Event Attendee Communications

Plus in addition to helping ensure the conference is a success, sponsorship enables us to provide access for high school and college computer science students to attend and plug into the local IT community.
