To whom it may concern,

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the GoWest Regional Conference. This conference is meant to service the Rocky Mountain West Area (Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and Idaho). The GoWest Conference was created with two main goals:

In our experience, notable companies who help achieve these goals by providing sponsorship make the conference a special experience for attendees.

GoWest will take place on October 21st, 2022, at the Weave HQ in Lehi, Utah. We are expecting an in-person attendance of 150 software developers from the region and an online attendance of 200+. It is important that attendees have a full conference experience. We will give them breaks and workspace to get to know fellow Go community members and community tech leaders.

We are reaching out to you as a leading company in the region to ask for your support as a sponsor. Although it may appear to be a trivial monetary matter, sponsorship can make or break a conference. We want the attendees and sponsors to have a world-class experience. We are compiling a list of amazing speakers. We are hoping that your added support will provide a truly exceptional experience for all.

There are several benefits of sponsoring. First is advertising for your company/product. Below are details about various advertising opportunities. We have several breaks planned in addition to times before the conference and during lunch when sponsors will get face-to-face time with the attendees. Additionally, some tiers will get office our times where they space in our  2-track schedule to field questions, highlight amazing technology, and interact directly with our amazing attendees. These opportunities can be used to recruit new talent, demo products, distribute merchandise, and/or network with the amazing Gophers in the region.

 Second, all sponsors will receive an allotment of tickets to attend the conference. That way you can enjoy talks, keynotes, networking, and other conference activities. We expect the conference’s content to be highly informative, technical, and creative. Additionally, ticket holders can attend the post-conference party to relax and unwind after the conference.
        GoWest is being put on by the Forge Foundation Inc., a registered non-profit. All sponsorship donations are tax-deductible as they will be made to the
Forge Utah Foundation with the explicit purpose of putting on the GoWest Conference.
