Item Sponsorship Programs

Monki Gras Custom Bottled Beers: two available

We’re going to have a special Monki Gras brew as a takeaway for the event. It’s a chance to have your name on a beer that delegates fall in love with at the event, and then take home with them to savour later. If you like experience marketing, this is the Best. Conference. Schwag. EVER. We’re also going to create a special beer menu online and off and we’ll include ratings on the social beer service Untappd, with vendors mentioned alongside tasting notes. The brewers of these beers will also present at the event and you’ll get a very special thank you from the Redmonks.

Conference Snacks and After Event Giveaways: two available

We’re looking forward to a busy day of sessions, whether those be main tent, breakout or hallway in nature. We’ll be making healthy tasty awesome snacks available during the day. Be the snack sponsor and get in front of people just as they’re looking for a lift. Rather than just snacks on the day, we’ll also have special snack packaging so delegates can take samples home with your branding. We have a specialist packaging designer putting this together.

Buy A Round: many available

Some of these awesome small batch beers retail at prices more expensive than champagne and Monki Gras attendees just love them! Sponsors who would like to chip into the bar bill will be recognized in event materials and given public thanks during the event. We’re also going to create a special beer menu online and off and we’ll include ratings on the social beer service Untapped, with vendors mentioned alongside tasting notes etc.

Breakfast: two available

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we never like to kick off a symposium without offering our guests refreshment. Of course there will be wonderful pastries, fresh fruit and a selection of nuts on offer, but we like to go that little bit further with the Monki Gras breakfast. Supplementing the cold options with something warm to balance out the beers, jetlag and chilly January mornings. There will be bacon sandwiches. But also tasty gluten free veggie options. We will have printed boards with sponsor logos and calls to action.

Awesome Coffee: sorry, sold out

RedMonk works with London’s best barista talent and artisan roast houses to offer unlimited craft coffee and small batch teas at all our events and this year will be no exception. Two baristas will be cranking coffee out in cups with your brand stamped on them and a printed foamex will highlight your contribution to this epic coffee experience – with tasting notes, roastery information etc. An opportunity to enhance the scope of your sponsorship with some really classy schwag. We’re working with our suppliers to create a special Monki Gras roast – a coffee giveaway with branding on the bag – for an additional fee. Our roaster will also speak at the event.

Lunch Sponsor: two available

Our lunch will be fit for the foodiest of foodies. In previous years we’ve served Korean, Peruvian and Japanese food. This year expect something equally epic and memorable. Help us feed everybody, and you’ll get placement on the serving tables and a public thank you as we head into the break. We have some amazing suppliers lined up – all tied into the packaging theme. Bento boxes are likely to make an appearance!

Dinner and Tasting Sponsor: one available

Bringing the best beers and totally amazing food to thirsty geeks is a RedMonk thing. Kick in some cash for this amazing, not to be duplicated tasting and dinner party and you’ll get placement on the venue’s tables, mentions as we close the day’s proceedings and a thank you to kick off the tasting. We will dress the space with significant sponsor branding to emphasise which sponsor supported this banqueting experience, on menus, boards, and special stickers. Previous unforgettable evenings have included a Nordic smorgasbord, with aquavit and a Scandi post-punk band. A fun filled movie and games night which featured an exclusive premiere screening of the short film ‘Original Gravity’ with kettle drum popcorn, ice cream cones and street food canapes. Curating our evenings to reflect the theme of the conference helps to make the occasion memorable and with your support we can cook up something equally impressive this year.

Video Sponsor: sorry, sold out

RedMonk will film all Monki Gras talks. These videos will be posted to the RedMonk community (blogs, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook) after the event. For this video series sponsorship we will work with the sponsor to create an intro piece for the series (a 2-5 second still image or pre-roll of up to 15 seconds – we’ll design in conjunction with the sponsor, using the Monki Gras 2017 visual language and your own logo). Sponsor can also provide a link (for example to a specific campaign, your company, or product) for use in each video post on the RedMonk and Monki Gras sites. RedMonk will create custom GIFs for each video. You will be reaching a savvy developer audience with these videos. We’ll be engaging a dedicated marketing resource for conference aftercare – pushing out the videos onto social channels, and targeting interested parties.

Documentally Sponsor: one available

Documentally aka Christian Paine is one of the UK foremost social network documentarists. With this sponsorship, you’ll be boosting the Monki Gras social signal far and wide and we’ll be sure to get your logo amplified as a key sponsor on the social side. Expect plenty of Periscope action and interviews with participants on the day.

Glassware: sorry, sold out

We have always felt a little proprietorial about the beautiful German glassware that we have specially printed for Monki Gras – it has only carried our own logos. This year’s packaging theme has inspired us to open it up as a sponsorship package. A unique opportunity to have your logo on the glass that our attendees look forward to receiving and use for years to come.
