Community outreach and sponsorship is one of the ways that O'Reilly Media supports technology communities around the world, and a way for us to provide access to our content and events.
Our partner program includes resources such as conference passes, food catering (for meetups and community events), books, free reports, and swag. We're excited to support technology communities and look forward to working with you.
To request O'Reilly sponsorship of your community group, sign up to partner with us. Once we receive your information we'll follow-up with you directly.
All partners will receive a discount on O'Reilly products and events to share with group members. The codes can be obtained from your O'Reilly contact or through the Partner Center.
Yes! Please share the codes with your community, social media channels, and anywhere else you see fit.
You may choose ONE of the following sponsorship packages for each sponsored meeting or event. Both sponsorships include a kit of O'Reilly Media books and swag.
We ask for some combination of the following, as applicable to your group or event:
All of the above are based on the format of your event.
The best way to give out O'Reilly prizes to your group is through a drawing during an event or meetup. If someone from O'Reilly is able to attend, they'll be able to host the drawing at the event. If an O'Reilly contact is unavailable to attend, you will be responsible for hosting the drawing.
You are free to host the drawing as creatively as you see fit. You can conduct an email drawing, social media giveaway, or select prize winners from a competition or hackathon. Below are suggestions on how a typical drawing is conducted.
Yes. You may choose to award the winner of your drawing with $300 USD of O'Reilly books (or the equivalent amount in your local currency) instead of a conference pass. The winner may also choose to receive the conference video compilation instead of the pass if they are not able to attend the conference.
You may select another winner from the drawing participants or email your O'Reilly contact to discuss alternative options. We always have a wait list of applicants who would be thrilled to accept the prize.
Please be patient during the reimbursement process. Provide all of the documents listed above and make sure they are complete, accurate, legible, and formatted properly to ensure reimbursement is processed as quickly as possible.
Once these documents are approved, a check will be issued to you or your company. You should receive this check via post mail within 1-3 weeks.
We have a special rewards program just for user group leaders. If you achieve a certain amount of registrations with your unique discount code, you will also earn a free pass to the conference.
O'Reilly maintains and cultivates relationships with communities throughout the year. To continue an ongoing sponsorship with O'Reilly Media, please register your group here.
To initiate the process, you must fill out the O'Reilly Partner Program form first. We only need additional forms (i.e. W-9) if you opt in to the catering sponsorship.
Yes, upon request. Please let your O'Reilly contact know which O'Reilly book or video titles you would like to feature in the drawing from the O'Reilly shop
It costs you nothing, aside from the time it takes to post information on the website and host the drawing.
Yes, to provide the prizes.
For food/beverage sponsorships, please provide the following documents to your O'Reilly contact:
