Sponsorship Info

Every REBarCamp depends on the generosity of companies willing to sponsor it, so that everyone can attend at no cost.  We are no different.

Already, we have had companies step up generously, the most important of which is Inman who is providing the space for REBarCamp NY at no charge.

Other companies, such as Redfin, Trulia, Coldwell Banker, and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, have already committed to sponsoring REBarcamp NY.  We will post a full sponsorship list soon, and keep it updated over the next few weeks.

But we could always use more for supplies, A/V equipment, and other expenses of putting on a REBarCamp.  Here’s what you need to know about sponsoring REBarCamp NY 2010:

  • Cost: $250

The badge sponsorship has already been taken by Redfin.

All sponsors will receive:

  • Mention on Website w/ Link
  • Mention during the Opening Session
  • Logo on the Big Board (where sessions are posted)
  • Logo on the T-Shirt (Deadline: Jan 4th for logos)
  • A place to display materials at REBC site (literature, collateral, etc.)
  • Attendee List – Name, Company, Email, Twitter handle (if they have one)*

EDIT: We never imagined the attendee list would be controversial, but in light of feedback, we are making this an OPT-IN LIST only.  Only the information of attendees who might want to hear from sponsors will be provided.  Please see comments for a fuller explanation.

Remember that the deadline for logos is noon, January 4th.  Logos should be high-resolution, and in JPG, PNG, PSD, or AI formats.

Please contact Scott Forcino (@forcinoesq) at [email protected] if you are interested.  Thank you all!

  1. Really? Sponsors will be getting complete registration list? I do not like this. I do not believe this should happen. We did NOT distribute the registration info of the REBarCamp PDX attendees to our sponsors. I hope this will be reconsidered.

  3. The REBC organizers have discussed the attendee list issue, and have made the change as in the post itself: only OPT-IN attendee information will be provided.

    When we discussed this in our original planning meeting, none of us ever thought that providing attendee list would be controversial. I’ve sponsored industry events aplenty in a professional capacity, and have always received the attendee list as a benefit of sponsorship. So we never imagined folks would have an issue with it.

    No sponsor has asked us for a list of attendees; we proactively offered it out of gratitude to these generous companies, just as a matter of course.

    But hey, we heard the feedback, and we’re happy to modify the offering.

    We did consider not offering a list at all, but felt it was better to go with an OPT-IN list (even stronger than an OPT-OUT list) because there may be first-timers coming who would actually want to hear from sponsors. They may have never heard of some of the companies and what they offer. So for such people, we’ll give them the option to be included in an attendee list.

    So thanks for all the feedback, and we’ll be getting back to work now of actually securing sponsors. 🙂

  4. Rob etal,

    Thank you for making the sponsor list an “opt-in” list. I think this is a great solution for those who would like to receive vendor/sponsor data. I’ll officially “opt-out” now. 😉

    Look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks!

  5. Actually Rob, I know this might fan the flames but, The above is a promise that you can’t currently make. I own rebarcamp.com the website and have established no privacy policy for a reason.

    On occasion, registration lists have been given to RE BarCamp sponsors. This dates back to the very first event in San Francisco and includes last year’s New York event. It was discussed by the original organizers and agreed upon at the time.

    I reserve the right to do so again in the future. I also reserve the right to use the list to help people in the industry promote other events. For instance, I gave last year’s rsvp list for New York to your team and I plan to use these lists to promote Real Estate WordCamp.

    I reserve the right to use this data however I see fit. If you wish to provide a privacy policy for RE BarCamp registrants, you will need to move the promotional website off of rebarcamp.com.

  6. Fine to email me. Fine to snail mail me. Just don’t call me on my mobile to make a cold call or solicitation. If we’re pals, your call on my mobile is welcome.

  11. Hey Todd –

    Oh, I didn’t mean the RSVP list on REBARCAMP.COM, which indeed, you own, and generously provide to people like us to make use of it.

    I meant more the registration list that we, LSSMC, will be compiling on the day of the conference. Sorry for not clarifying that.

    RSVP List doesn’t necessarily mean Attendee List, since many people who say they’ll attend may not make it. For what it’s worth, I never thought we had the right to do anything with the RSVP list or anything on this website.

    Thanks,
