Although many of the details are still being worked out we wanted to put out a quick post to note that the CFP for the ShmooCon FireTalks closes tomorrow at midnight and announce a call for sponsors.

First of all we have had a great turnout for the CFP so far and even selected four speakers in the first round. With a total of 12 planned slots, that still leaves 8 more available. So if you have a barcode and were thinking of submitting a talk, be sure to submit it by tomorrow – January 15th before midnight.

Next up is our continued effort to raise the bar on great prizes. In order to support this we have come up with the following sponsorship levels. You’ll probably note that the levels are a significant increase over last year … but so are the prizes we plan to give out!

  • Platinum: $1000 (prize for 1st place)
  • Gold: $500 (prize for 2nd place)
  • Silver: $275 (prize for 3rd place)
  • Bronze: $225 (miscellaneous give-aways, volunteer & speaker gifts, operating expenses, etc.)

Your company or organization gets exposure two evenings at ShmooCon during the FireTalks as well as mentions in all related blog posts here as we approach the conference. If you are interested in sponsoring please contact us or hit me up on Twitter (@grecs).
