Sponsorship Info

 

Event Description

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring SharePoint Saturday Nashville. SharePoint Saturday is a community event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local technical community. SharePoint Saturday draws upon the expertise of local SharePoint IT professionals, developers and solutions architects who come together to share their real-world experiences, lessons learned, best practices, and general knowledge with other like-minded individuals. The event is free of charge to all registered individuals and is a not for profit event. The three (3) levels of sponsorship we have established will help provide the resources necessary to facilitate an event that is successful and satisfying at all levels.

Event Details

SharePoint Saturday Nashville will be hosted at the Business and Aerospace Building on Middle Tennessee State University's campus, located at 1642 MTSU Blvd, Murfreesboro, TN 37132. The event will run from approx. 8:00-5:00 PM on Saturday, April 8th, 2017. A light, continental-style breakfast will be served, a full lunch and there will be numerous giveaways through-out the day. There will be several primary content tracks – End User, Developer, Administrator and possibly Special Interests from which attendees may select the topics which most closely align with their job function or area of interest. Each track will consist of four or five presentations lasting approximately 60 minutes and ranging from introductory, 100-level content to highly technical, 400-level "expert" sessions. Speakers will represent a broad cross section of the community and offer a variety of perspectives and points of view.

Event Attendance

This will be the fourth SharePoint Saturday event held in Nashville and we plan on opening the attendance to 250 people – last year we had more than 190 register. As the event approaches, we will share the registration numbers with sponsors to assist with staff planning and collateral quantities.
