Have You Explored the Global AWS Summit Sponsorship Opportunities?

Last year, I had the pleasure of attending a number of our AWS Summits, including the San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and London Summits. Without a doubt, my favorite part of attending the different Summits was not only getting to chat with the APN Partners who sponsored, but getting to see our partners in action. I meandered through the Expo Hall and watched as our Consulting and Technology Partners engaged with both AWS customers and AWS employees, and demonstrated the value that they bring customers on AWS. And as someone who has spent a lot of time learning and writing about some of the awesome work our partners have done together, it was also exciting to see partners connecting with one another. We’ve now launched the 2016 AWS Summits website, and with a number of our Summits fast approaching, it seems like a great time to discuss the different opportunities you have to sponsor AWS Summits around the world.

Why Sponsor an AWS Summit?

What are your plans for reaching your target customer base in 2016? Do you hope to grow your network in a particular region?

AWS Summits are regionally focused, meaning that most of the attendees are based in or near the region where the Summit is being held. As an AWS Partner, this provides you with a great opportunity to foster relationships with your existing customers in-region, and to network with regionally targeted attendees before, during, and after the event itself. You can also connect with other AWS Partners who are focused within that region, and learn more about different opportunities to work together to drive additional value for customers on AWS.

Our goal is to help you make the most of any sponsorship activities you undertake, and you have a lot of options depending on the level of sponsorship. The AWS Sponsorship team has built comprehensive Sponsorship packages for 2016, including Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsorship packages. Each package includes exhibitor resources, marketing and promotion resources, and for Gold and Silver sponsors, premier resources.
