We'd love to support you if you are organizing an event, be it GitLab-centric or around a topic where GitLab content is relevant (e.g. DevOps meetup, hackathon, etc.). Depending on the number and type of attendees at an event, it may be owned by Corporate Marketing, Field Marketing, or Community Relations. Please review our [events decision tree](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aWsmsksPfOlX1t6TeqPkh5EQXergt7qjHAjGTxU27as/edit?usp=sharing) to ensure you are directing your event inquiry to the appropriate team.
We ask the following questions when assessing an event:
- Will there be a GitLab speaker? We do not require a speaker slot in return for sponsorship but we do prioritize events where the audience will be hearing about GitLab - either from a GitLabber or a member of the wider GitLab community.
- Will there be a GitLab speaker? We do not require a speaker slot in return for sponsorship but we do prioritize events where the audience will be hearing about GitLab - either from a GitLab team member or a member of the wider GitLab community.
- What type of people will be attending the event? We prioritize events attended by diverse groups of developers with an interest in DevSecOps, Cloud Native, Kubernetes, Serverless, Multi-cloud, CI/CD, Open Source, and other related topics.
- Will we be able to interact with attendees? We prioritize events that provide opportunities for meetings, BOF sessions, and other interaction with attendees.
- Will we be able to interact with attendees? We prioritize events that provide opportunities for meetings, workshops, booth or stands to help people find us, and other interaction with attendees.
- Where will the event be held? We aim to have a presence at events around the globe with a particular focus on areas with large GitLab communities and large populations of developers.
- Is the event important for industry and/or open source visibility? We prioritize events that influence trends and attract leaders within the developer and open source communities.
- Is the event important for industry and/or open source visibility? We prioritize events that influence trends and attract leaders within the developer and open source communities. We also prioritize events organized by our strategic partners.
- What is the size of the opportunity for the event? We prioritize events based on audience size, the number of interactions we have with attendees, and potential for future contributions to GitLab from attendees.
Each question is graded on a scale of 0-2. We then tally the scores and assign the event to a sponsorship tier.
- Events scoring below 5 are not eligible for sponsorship.
- Events scoring 6-8 are eligible for GitLab swag for attendees and other in-kind sponsorship.
- Events scoring 9 or above are eligible for financial support up to $10,000USD.
- Events scoring 9 or above are eligible for financial support.
We ask these questions and use this scorecard to ensure that we're prioritizing GitLab's and our community's best interests when we sponsor events.
