[arin-announce] Open Call for 2015 ARIN Meeting Sponsorship

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) will be holding 
meetings in San Francisco (ARIN 35) and Montreal (ARIN 36) next April 
and October, respectively. These meetings are crucial to the Internet 
technical community because the policies being developed determine how 
Internet number resources are administered, and those decisions have a 
direct impact on the future of the Internet as a whole. With big 
decisions to be made, many of the biggest players in the Internet 
community make a point of getting involved (Fortune 100 enterprises, 
gigantic ISPs and hosting providers, prestigious universities…), and we 
want them to have the chance to see that you are committed to supporting 
the future growth and stability of the Internet, too.

ARIN’s Policy Development Process relies on people from the United 
States, Canada and Caribbean packing up and shipping off to the ARIN 
meeting to speak up and say, “Hey, I think THIS is how IP addresses 
should be allocated!” Because you can’t create the same dynamic dialog 
over email, it is so important to hold face-to-face discussions to 
provide ideas room to grow. ARIN meetings fuel the policy process – 
draft policy debates spark new ideas that are carried from the meeting 
room where supporters gather to flesh out new proposals, and you can 
help make it all happen. ARIN meeting sponsorships require minimal 
investment and put you on the radar of some of the most influential 
organizations in the industry.

If you need a convincing argument to get your organization on board, 
don’t neglect to mention how flexible ARIN sponsorship opportunities 
are. You can sponsor anything from a snack or meal break to a happy hour 
or other social event. Can’t afford to fly solo on sponsoring one of 
these options? Feel free to tackle a sponsorship alongside another 
organization, gaining invaluable visibility at an even smaller cost! We 
can even play matchmaker for you to find a suitable co-sponsor, if you 
don’t have one in mind.

ARIN 35 in San Francisco will be held 12-15 April 2015, and ARIN 36 in 
Montreal will be held 8-9 October, in conjunction with NANOG 65. This 
gives you plenty of time to negotiate making ARIN meeting sponsorship 
part of your 2015 marketing budget. For the full rundown, check out our
