Singapore Linux Conference 2002 Seeks Sponsors

[ Thanks to cchamilt

The Singapore Linux Conference
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

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.
