13th Annual AusCERT Information Security Conference: 12th - 16th May 2014

Your invitation to sponsor AusCERT2014

On behalf of AusCERT, I warmly invite you to come on board and participate in Australia’s premier IT security conference as a valued sponsor of AusCERT2014, the 13th Annual AusCERT Information Security Conference. The following pages provide information about the various levels of sponsorship available.

We have already begun planning for AusCERT2014 which promises to be another fantastic event, with a great speaking program and a wealth of opportunities for sponsors to increase their brand awareness, generate leads, build relationships, and conduct business. Already we have speakers on board including Marcus Sachs from Verizon and Professor Edward Felten from Princeton University. We also have several sponsors who have confirmed their participation, so AusCERT2014 is already underway to be another successful event.

The big news for AusCERT2014 is that RACV Royal Pines Resort is undergoing a refurbishment to its exhibition area which will give AusCERT2014 a fresh look. The changes mean there is a new floor plan so please confirm your sponsorship as quickly as you can so you can secure one of the best booth positions available. The other noteworthy change is that we are trialing the conference registration desk upstairs in the Convention Lobby which will significantly increase the delegate traffic in that area, and also change the flow of the delegate traffic on the main conference floor.

For the last few years we have concentrated on increasing value for sponsors by better balancing the ratio of sponsors to delegates. I am pleased that we achieved this goal as approximately 70% of all conference attendees were delegates. We are aiming for this again for AusCERT2014.

After AusCERT2013 many sponsors attended focus groups or met with me personally to discuss their experiences with the conference. Their feedback has been invaluable and helped us identify how we can improve sponsorship value and the delegate experience. Please ensure that you read this prospectus carefully and review each sponsorship level, even if you are familiar with previous AusCERT conferences, as the levels and benefits have changed.

Within AusCERT, Briony Gray and Rebecca Cheb are part of our sponsorship team and will be pleased to assist you with working towards your goals for AusCERT2014. AusCERT is also pleased to have professional conference organisers, YRD Event Management, again working with us.

AusCERT and YRD are looking forward to working with you to make the AusCERT2014 conference a successful and worthwhile event for your organisation to help your business meet its goals.
