© 2018 Strange Loop
Since 2009, Strange Loop has established itself as the leading venue for the most innovative software developers to meet, share ideas, and create the next wave of technology. Strange Loop has sold out every year since 2009, finally finding a home at the Stifel Theatre and nearby Union Station where we can accommodate 2200 attendees. Strange Loop 2018 will be a two day conference (Sept 27th-28th) with a preconference workshop day (Sept 26th).
If you're looking to connect with some of the world's best and brightest software professionals, then Strange Loop is the place. Whether you're interested in brand awareness, hiring, education, supporting a great conference, or creating direct connections to key influencers, Strange Loop has options for you.

Sponsorship starts with a base sponsorship level of Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze. The primary differentiator of each level is whether there is a sponsor table and where it's located. You can also add a number of optional items listed later in the prospectus. If you are interested in a sponsorship without a table, you can use either the Bronze or Supporting levels.
Platinum sponsors receive the following benefits:
Gold sponsors receive the following benefits:
Silver sponsors receive the following benefits:

All optional items also require a Supporting or higher sponsorship. Cost listed is in addition to the base cost.
You provide the lanyards that every attendee will wear around their neck - a great way to get exposure throughout the conference!
The night before the main conference we'll once again be taking over the one-of-a-kind St. Louis City Museum for music, food, and some crazy slides. A party host has an increased profile at the conference party, typically hosting a special area or event. Party hosts also get special recognition in the schedule.

Put a custom design with your logo on it into the hands of every attendee staying at the conference hotel! This is a great way to put your brand out there in a highly visible way. Sponsorship includes all costs and ordering - we'll take care of everything and work with you on the design.
Strange Loop has always made videos available for free to non-attendees following the conference. As a video sponsor, you support the recording and release of these videos. In exchange, your logo will be displayed in the pre-roll slides before every Strange Loop video. In 2016, these videos were viewed approximately 25,000 times in the year following the conference. Video sponsorship is a great way to get an impact from Strange Loop after the conference.
To make the conference a better experience for a greater group of attendees, we provide live captioning in the main theater for all keynotes and sessions. Your logo will be displayed on the caption screen throughout the conference.
Note: Must be a Silver sponsor or higher.
Post a free-standing banner (provided by you) on the Strange Loop main stage throughout the conference.
