I've been contacted by the organizers of the Encuentro Linux 2012 in Chile ( http://2012.encuentrolinux.cl/?lang=en ). This is a national event celebrated this year in the city where I live and work. The organizers wrote me asking about sponsorships from openSUSE or Novell ( http://2012.encuentrolinux.cl/?page_id=63&lang=en ). As an openSUSE ambassador I did not find any information related on the Ambassadors Portal. So I decided to ask here.
Most of the people in the organization team are senior students in the university where I teach ( www.utalca.cl ), so regardless of whether I can get some kind of sponsorship they made me an invitation to implement an openSUSE booth at the event. This event receives each year about 600 visitors between students, professionals and bussiness representatives. National and international experts will have talks, workshops and demonstrations at the place.
Any light will be appreciated.
SUSE and Novell are mainly sponsoring a few major business type events - and openSUSE is only sponsoring a few selected events - and those are decided way ahead in general. So, unfortunately this will not work.
If you need sponsorship for attending the event and for some marketing material, please review the openSUSE Travel Support Program: http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Travel_Support_Program
