Do you share our enthusiasm about building communities?
Big Data Week translates as a yearly, week-long related events, taking place (more or less) within the same time-frame, in multiple cities around the world, with thousands of individuals working together to host panels, workshops, talks and industry networking events.
Local events can be registered separately, but the best is that they are managed and hosted by City Partners, in tight collaboration with the local big data communities, big data practitioners, industry professionals, content partners, start-ups, entrepreneurs and local businesses to produce events across each city.
In order to help you further with planning your city events, for 2017, we have built a City Partner package*, that includes:
- The rights to use the event concept – global event brand, conference structure concept, event presentation
- Dedicated web page on bigdataweek.com promoting your event
- Sponsorship pack
- Event presentation for sponsors – template
- Defined sponsorship packages and activities – template
- Design pack
- Big Data Week identity
- Communication materials for online and offline promotion – template
- Press kit
- Press release template
- Visual pack (logos, online banners, thumbnails, icons etc.)
- Visibility: we will thoroughly promote your #BDW2017 local events to our constantly growing worldwide BDW community.
- Social media promotion: includes submission of an unlimited number of articles and press releases through the #BDW conference blog and social media channels. (Note: All marketing content must be in English and be approved by BDW staff prior to publication, which may result in a few days delay from the day of submission.)
*City Partner Package Fee: 600 GBP (following your submission we will revert with a confirmation email and payment details for this package).
