Texas Cyber Summit: takes attendee, sponsors and volunteer privacy serious, as such we do not release blanket attendee lists. We understand that sponsors, support our events and others all in an effort to obtain new leads, contacts and interested parties, as well as obtain visibility for their brand, services and products. In an effort to help find middle ground below is how we help sponsors:
A. All Ticket purchases require the attendee to specifically “opt-in” or “opt-out” we do this for transparency.
B. Tickets for all of our social and other events are default to Opt-in, we do have an opt-out feature that attendees can select.
C. We host a “passport” to prizes,bingo card – that is only opt-in, the more sponsors that donate prizes the more likely we pickup more attendees.
D. We allow sponsors to host contests, give-a-ways and promos at their tables to engage further with attendees, and your efforts to collect business cards and contact information – We allow any number of in-booth promotions to take place, just keep us in the loop.
E. Finally, you will be able to utilize a badge scanner capability at each sponsors booth, NEW THIS YEAR 2023′ – You will be able to use your phone and access the portal for 90 days.
F. Announcing at opening each day: Directing attendees to spend time at the sponsor area, as sponsors help make the event possible.
G. All Contests, Challenges, and CTF’s are default to opt-in, although participants can select to opt’out of these as a reasonable alternative.
I. Scavenger Hunt, Like passport to prizes, attendees will have to continuously be in contact with sponsors for clues each 1/2 a day. Daily prizes and is opt’in. Sponsors need to let us know their interest in being involved, because it does require a lot of interactions.
J. Center Stage: Some sponsorship levels include a “Center Stage” however for an additional fee sponsors will be able utilize the main stage for technical, briefings, marketing, product demo’s and product launches.
