Reach an Engaged and International Audience

W3C Workshops, meetups, and other events bring you into direct contact with leading Web technology experts: representatives from industry, research, government, and the developer community. Whether your interests are focused on a particular topic being discussed by a Working Group, or you wish to reach a diverse international audience setting W3C's strategic direction, these pages help your organization reach W3C's engaged participants. Sponsorships offset a portion of our meeting costs, so W3C welcomes multiple sponsors for each event. Contact Ian Jacobs <ij@w3.org>. All proposals for sponsorship are subject to W3C approval.

Customize your Sponsorship

We invite event sponsors to customize their support. Sponsors may specify that they want to be recognized for supporting a particular element of a meeting, such as:

  • food and beverages
  • internet connectivity

  • marketing efforts such as shirt design and production

We welcome additional suggestions and will work with you to customize our recognition of your support.
