Why do I continue to support community events? Well, Brent Ashley wrote about his reasons for supporting community events including DemoCamp. I met Brent way back at DemoCampToronto3 and he has continued to be a strong supporter, participant and citizen in the community. Ryan and RedFlagDeals.com have been active members and have supported the community since the very beginning. Others are starting to realize there is a community and it needs support, and we have 3 new sponsors for DemoCampToronto14
As our community has grown, the cost of holding events has risen. When we were 30 people we could hold an event in a boardroom (thanks Albert for the Bubbleshare boardroom) and order pizza. We grown steadily from 30 to over 450 attendees at FacebookDevCamp Toronto and there are costs to find space and services to accommodate an audience this large. Here is the list of sponsor for DemoCampToronto14.
We’re still looking for a few sponsors, at least one sponsor, I’m just waiting for the final costs to be sent. Let me know if you’re interested.
