We will submit on Thursday. The budget is almost ready.
I am working with Bojana and Sandra to get the venue/food costs all in (we seem to have everything except banquet for EUR 25,000)
Yes sponsors are my main focus right now.
Did we submit to ACM so we receive the Microsoft and ACM sponsor money??
This is fine. 6 more free registrations for Google.
I have just realized that we’ve got a better deal with the hotel than I originally thought. So, we should be fine.
And, of course, we are going after more sponsors J.
Google does have 6 registrations for supporting the event at the Diamond level.
These are in addition to the ‘free’ registrations. They are adding to the travel grants (participation scholarships) an additional 6 women who they fully sponsor.
So if we do not add these free registrations, they will have to support fewer people to cover the cost of the registration.
Google is one of our most important supporters, they are providing a speaker, a workshop, cooperating on social media to advertise to their community.
They sponsor in addition to the diamond money 6 more women. And they bring as registrants often more than 6 of their employees to the event paying for those extra registrations.
I realize you must balance the budget but I think having a large number of attendees is also very important.
Let me know if you want to discuss.
Yes, we have reserved 6 places for Google among the ‘free’ registrations for supporters.
We do not have the final list of all supporters, of course, but that is Ok. We do not have the final count of other ‘free’ participants either and will be able to adjust.
For supporters like Google we have a past and we should continue to provide what we had provided. My suggestion is to give 6 complimentary registration. However it will be safe to check the budget since I do not know the final version and the decisions made.

Every year Google gives up to 6 participants the opportunity to attend womENcourage, they pay for their travel costs. We have every year provided these participants a free registration.
Google has asked me if they can have free registration again for these 6 participants. I would like to get agreement that we will do this before telling Charlie at Google that we can provide the free registration.
Please let me know your thoughts. I would like to let Charlie know by 30 June.
