The CloudFest Hackathon sponsorship is based on a fixed-fee batch model and not project-related, thus eliminating the commercial characteristics of the event and driving increased participation from #OSS communities in this important series of projects. For every package purchased, you can send a determined number of your crew members and support an equal number of open-source (OS) community contributors OR choose to exclusively sponsor community contributors with your spot(s).

Vendor Pass

Secure Your Exclusive Vendor and Vendor VIP Passes for the CloudFest Main Event!

The dedicated Vendor Pass is for attendees who sell to CloudFest’s core channel. Some Vendor Passes will be included in your CloudFest Hackathon partnership package.

Vendor and Vendor VIP Pass privileges include:

  • The ability to book 1on1 Meeting Tables
  • Badge scanning at Europa-Park, to create and download lead lists using their smartphone
  • Inclusion in a special Vendor Register so attendees can find and connect with the vendors they want to meet

For IT professionals outside CloudFest’s core channel, each Vendor Pass will cost 999 €.
Examples of outside-the-channel companies would include domain name registries, hardware producers, or ISVs.
As a partner, you help us to enable free access for the most motivated audience in the industry, while enabling us to continue providing the high-end experiences that make this festival so valuable for both attendees and sponsors.

The Vendor Pass serves as a “vibe check”, to make sure that those outside the channel have a very good reason to join us at Europa-Park. That way, you’ll know that everyone you meet at Europa-park is someone you WANT to meet, business-wise.

The Vendor VIP Pass includes the perks mentioned above, plus privileges such as private networking events, hotel concierge service, free shuttles throughout the venue, and access to the dedicated VIP Lounge.
