2021 Sponsorship Prospectus

Greetings from the Strange Loop Team!

Since 2009, Strange Loop has established itself as the leading venue for the most innovative software developers to meet, share ideas, and create the next wave of technology.

Strange Loop 2021 will be a two day conference (Oct 1st-2nd) with a preconference workshop day (Sep 30th). This year the conference will have all meals in the Union Station midway and the sponsor booths will line the midway. Options are available for quad (Platinum), double (Gold), and single (Silver) booths. The booths will be open during both conference days and on Friday evening (not on the preconference).

If you're looking to connect with some of the world's best and brightest software professionals, then Strange Loop is the place. Whether you're interested in brand awareness, hiring, education, supporting a great conference, or creating direct connections to key influencers, Strange Loop has options for you.

Sincerely,
Alex Miller, Founder

Why Do People Like It?

Feedback comments from Strange Loop 2019:

"I love Strange Loop's interdisciplinary nature. It feels like I see talks there that I wouldn't see anywhere else."

"The diversity of talks, speakers, and attendees, and the depth of some of the content, significantly exceeds that of any other conference I attend."

"The huge variety of topics and products and backgrounds was an inspiring reminder of what computer technologies can do. The ability to write code is a superpower, but it's easy to forget that being an engineer can be about creation, and not just implementation. It was an incredible experience."

"The wonderful inclusive atmosphere and breadth of talks."

"I love the broad range of topics, from theory to ops to art, and always come back motivated to try something new!"

"I love the variety of topics & companies represented across different topics. Also love to see so much diversity in both attendees and presenters."

"So many conferences are about a particular language or technology and I think we tend to get stuck in our little ruts. Strange Loop was an amazing opportunity to surround myself with some of the smartest people in the world and see what they're all thinking about."

"Meeting new people, making new friends. I came away with a network of people to support me on my path no matter where it leads."

"Hands down the most diverse, interesting, and well thought out talks I've been to at a conf, can't wait to go next year!"

"Strange Loop is consistently an affordable, quality conference with amazing attendees and useful talks. Hands down my favorite conference of all time."
