Sponsor a Meetup Event

Are you interested in getting your brand in front of a bunch of WordPress enthusiasts? Perhaps you just want to give back to the WordPress community?

As part of the WPAustralia agreement the WordPress Perth meetup is able to cover the cost of pizzas once a month thanks to WPAustralia’s generous National Sponsors. The meetup venue is generously donated by Spacecubed.

Fortunately, there are still ways for local businesses to be involved with meetup sponsorship – and that is to provide drinks for one of the meetup events. This is something the meetup team are not able to do under the WP Australia sponsorship agreement, but Spacecubed does permit us to bring along drinks if we wish (assuming we are drinking responsibly). Typically, meetup attendance is between 20 – 50 people, so we typically recommend a budget of approximately $100 – $150 for a single event.

How does this work?

As the meetup is a small, local group, it does not have a bank account. The meetup is 100% managed by volunteers, as are all WordPress Meetups globally. As such, it is difficult for us to invoice sponsors! If you are interested in being an event sponsor and providing drinks, we typically request that you purchase the drinks directly rather than reimburse us. Spacecubed have a long-standing arrangement with the local Liquor Barons, who will happily provide delivery to the venue with enough notice.

In return for your sponsorship, we’ll give you an opportunity to introduce yourself at the start of the meetup, the option to have your pull-up banner displayed, and you’ll get a shout out both during the event, in the leadup, on Meetup.com, and on our socials.
