Singapore Linux Conference 2002 Seeks Sponsors

Sep 09, 2002, 05:30 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to cchamilt for this link. ]

The Singapore Linux Conference 2002 is quickly running out of sponsors to approach. We have been in talks with many of the big names, but slowly most have pulled out or are not willing to give financial support. SLC is a conference we hold every year and is the big reason why we have a Linux User Group of Singapore. We need sponsors to get money for speakers.

This year we are holding the conference on October 14th-16th which has seemingly conflicted with Microsoft's APACFusion. They are holding this regional 'partner' conference which does not in any way conflict with our conference audience. (Note: Last year we had a similar Microsoft conflict on our date in March 2001 in the same exposition center!)

Sponsors who were planning and promising money are now saying that their budget/people have been allocated for the Microsoft conference. So we are running out of options. Any Linux/BSD companies interested in marketing in SE Asia (Singapore specifically) are welcome to contact conference organizers.
