2019 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 has sold out every year since 2009, finally finding a home at the Stifel Theatre and nearby Union Station where we can accommodate 2200 attendees. Strange Loop 2019 will be a two day conference (Sept 13th-14th) with a preconference workshop day (Sept 12th).

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.
