Sponsorships

Why Sponsor?

Our conferences are about creating memorable experiences and supportive, engaged communities. We go the extra couple of miles to ensure people don’t forget the conference or the patrons that supported it. In an era of cookie cooker conferences, ours stand out as truly unique.

Besides being the first and only event of its kind blending craft themes, beer and technology in the UK, Monki Gras is an exclusive, high profile developer and practitioner conference.  It’s a unique opportunity to reach an audience of technical folks that just don’t fit into traditional developer categories. You can’t find a crowd like this anywhere else in the world, where incredibly successful startup founders and enterprise general managers just come along for the ride and mingle with other attendees as peers.

The following sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Juliane Leary (juliane@redmonk.com) to purchase or with any questions.
