Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa: Sponsorship Opportunities

Introducing the Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa

When you sponsor a Regional Scrum Gathering®, your company’s message is exactly where it should be – in front of your target audience. The Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa attracts around 150-200 attendees every year and has a track record of delivering world-class content. The attendees are made up of scrum practitioners, scrum masters, product owners, developers, management, executives, agile coaches, trainers and many other roles. This means your message is viewed and captured by scrum and agile community members from every level of the organisation.

Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa 2018 will be our 9th edition of the conference. The event attracts top level speakers internationally and locally. Every year it provides great opportunities to promote your products and services as well as to find the right talent for your company.

Introducing SUGSA

The Scrum User Group of South Africa (SUGSA) is a Scrum Alliance registered user group in South Africa and the oldest in Africa. SUGSA’s mission is to build a framework for collaboration between local agile practitioners through experts on the ground with the support from the Scrum Alliance. Its aim is to improve the agile maturity level in South Africa by sharing experiences of success and failure, good practices, and expert presentations.

As in the rest of the world, the South African community of agile practitioners is vibrant and growing. Many community members are well recognised abroad and are often invited to speak at international conferences and facilitate training around the world.

SUGSA would like to continue this trend. We believe that creating a perfect blend of international and local speakers provides a unique opportunity to ensure South African companies are exposed to the same agile thought leadership as the rest of the world. This year the Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa will be hosted 8 – 9 November 2018.

Positioning

The Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa 2018 is for those interested in Agile or are practising it already.

As SUGSA, we believe in global world and love to create a platform to learn from agilists from around the globe, and to support our mission, our conference is one of the very few conferences in the world which motivates International and local speakers by covering travel and hotel costs up to an extent.

Various media and messages will be used to promote the Regional Scrum Gathering® South Africa 2018 to potential delegates, and each communication will present an opportunity for sponsors to gain exclusive exposure to a broader audience than those able to attend.
Attendees are likely to be CIOs, other executives, senior managers, and those performing scrum roles: product owners, scrum masters, and technical people: developers, team Leads, QAs and architects.
