A Message to Sponsors…

The Denver SQL Server User Group (Denver SQL) is proud to make available the following packages for sponsorship.  For years, companies have found that actively participating in the Denver SQL community is an excellent way to promote their product, recruit potential employees, and/or highlight services/products.

We realize that the commitment made by our sponsors is very valuable to the members of our group.  With the funds raised by sponsors, we can offer a richer experience to our dedicated members.

We thank you for your interest and hope that you find a package level that meets your needs.  If you have questions about the packages or would like to discuss creating a customized package, please contact our board at Board@DenverSQL.org.

Growth

Denver SQL is a premier Microsoft user group in the Denver metro area.  We continued to experience tremendous growth during the 2016 year.  Our larger space in the Microsoft offices are consistently filled with 40 or more members. Popular topics we see as many as 75 members. Our continued goal for 2017 is increasing membership by targeting local schools and businesses.  That equates to a larger audience for sponsors.  Our members are a diverse population of database administrators, developers, managers, and IT professionals representing a valuable cross-section of the Denver area’s marketplace.

Email Communications

The primary marketing tool we offer to our sponsors is inclusion into our monthly email communications.  We send no more than four emails per month to over 1,400 registered members.  The communications are a professionally formatted email, which includes sections for the monthly premier sponsor, training, speakers, and several other dynamic sections.

Website

We also include logos and links on www.DenverSQL.org web page as part of our sponsorship packages.  Our website is continually growing to support our members, activities, and monthly meetings. The website is going through a major overall and will be delivered within the first quarter of 2017.
