An international event of the size of FOSS.IN has huge expenses involved with it. The biggest costs involved are the venue, speaker hospitality, infrastructure expenses (such as the internet and network for the event), food for delegates, and much more.
The conference is committed to keeping the costs down to affordable levels for delegates who find themselves having to pay thousands (if not tens of thousands) of Rupees for commercial conferences.
The delegate fees for the entire event is 2500 INR per head (1500 INR for bonafide students, 5,000 INR for corporate/donor delegates). The amount is used entirely to provide food and conference materials to the delegates for all the days of the event, and is not used for any other expenses.
However, the remaining costs are covered by sponsors, and we have been very lucky to have had generous organisations sponsoring our event year after year.
In return for their sponsorship, we provide our sponsors wide exposure, and provide exhibition and other facilities.
- Under no circumstances will the organisers divulge names or contact information of delegates
- Speaking slots are independent of sponsorship (sponsorship != speaking slot)
- Only full sponsors get stall space at the event
- Sponsorships will not be announced unless full sponsorship amount has been received.
