Information for Sponsors

The sponsorís role:

Many companies and organizations have been active in the VLDB conference, and have sponsored past VLDBs. Without these sponsorships, It would be difficult to offer the same high quality, for which the VLDB is well known, at affordable registration rates. The normal way for sponsorship is cash contributions to defray the costs of organizing the conference and to assist in local participation. Contributions are normally made in the range of $5,000-$30,000.

In return, the sponsor will receive publicity through our relevant publications including the official proceedings, brochures, and conference posters. All these publications are disseminated locally and worldwide through our international publicity chairs. In addition, the sponsor's name and logo will be displayed on our home page. Names of contributors will be displayed by in order of their contributions.

Other forms of sponsorship could include hosting a meal, a social event (sightseeing or dinner cruise) or the conference banquet, which could be held in the name of the sponsor.

Additionally, some companies contribute an amount earmarked to support local registrations for faculty members form local universities and professionals from various government organizations. This could be named after the sponsor as a special VLDB fund.
