Hi All,

In regards to the openSUSE Summit Tickets List, we might consider something

similar to oSC13 we had in July.

First of all, are we going to allow partners to do some presentations? In
case yes, the following
ticket table I got from oSC13 brochure might work then.

Ticket List Suggestion

Oooops confusion.....

* GOLD Partner
Logo on welcome banner, in main and
secondary conf rooms
3 min talk time at closing
Unlimited inserts in conference bag
Up to 10 professional conference tickets
Non exclusive sponsor video display at entrance

* Silver
Logo in main and secondary conf rooms
2 min talk time at closing
Unlimited inserts in conference bag
Up to 6 professional conference tickets

* Bronze
Logo in workshop rooms
Up to 4 professional conference tickets

* Community Partner
Booth space available
free for Free/Open Source organizations

These are sponsor levels that is something different and work is on the
way to detail the sponsor stuff possibly also having combined offers
with oSC14

The basic premise is that everyone gets into the Summit for free.
However, those that want to support the event by making a "small", $50
for example, financial contribution can buy a ticket. The ticket would
need to be advertized through the SUSE shop.

ok, thanks for the explanation.

In return for buying a ticket we will give those that buy one something
"special" in recognition for the support back, obviously what we give
back should cost us less than the price of the ticket ;) .


In the past we had supporter tickets for $50 and professional tickets
for $200. The prices and names are probably still OK.

the price range from $10-$50 for support tickets sounds reasonable and $200 for
professional tickets as well.

Question is what "special" stuff can we give those that buy supporter
and professional tickets? Ideally we'd have stuff laying around in Provo
that we can give away and doesn't cost the project anything. If we
cannot get free stuff from SUSE marketing we need to come up with
something that is reasonably cheap to produce/purchase.

I've been talking to Kent (SUSE Marketing) and he said he might be able to give
us some
SUSE backpacks and he was going to check it for me. He is in Barcelona this
week so I suppose
I'll get his response by next week. I'll keep you posted about it.

We have recently approved trademark for clothing, maybe there is an
avenue there to get something near cost.

In summary, see what you can get out of the Marketing folks to include
as a token of recognition for ticket buyers or checkout stuff that is
reasonable quality but also reasonable in price.


Also a professional ticket could be 5 supporter ticktes for example.

ok, that makes sense and I agree with that as well.

HTH, thanks,
