CALL FOR SPONSORS

AtlSecCon 2020 – Call for Sponsors

 

ABOUT US

AtlSecCon, is the premiere, non-profit security conference in Atlantic Canada focusing on bringing some of the world’s brightest and darkest minds together with one common goal – to expand the pool of IT Security knowledge beyond its typical confines.

 

The conference runs for two days and features a multiple track program of presentations prepared by experienced security and privacy professionals. We provide an unmatched opportunity for everyone: from IT Professionals, Managers, and C-level folks to collaborate with their peers and learn from the leading industry experts.

 

The event features keynotes from the most respected and trusted experts worldwide. The speakers are true security professionals with depth of understanding on topics that matter.

 

HISTORY

Starting in 2011, The Atlantic Security Conference is a non-profit organization and has shown great growth each year. It started with small screens and one room with 75 attendees, but had some very big aspirations.

 

AtlSecCon 2019 had five tracks, training, capture the flag, events and 700+ attendees. In addition to appreciating our sponsors, we strive to give them great value!

 

ATTENDEES

It is imperative to AtlSecCon that attendees remain relevant to our sponsors. Whether attendees are users, influencers, or buyers, the AtlSecCon goal is to invite sponsors that will bring value and establish a relationship with our attendees. Developing quality leads that will drive revenue is why security related corporations sponsor AtlSecCon, and why those corporations come back each year.

 

AtlSecCon attendees represent a range of customer sizes from the small (25+) to the very large (25,000+). Most attendees have strong security skills, or are middle to senior level management.

 

SPEAKERS

What makes AtlSecCon a “must” attend event for both attendees and sponsors is the unmatched quality, skill, expertise and knowledge of our speakers. Unique to Canada, AtlSecCon brings the world’s most renowned security experts together for one event.

 

The first round of AtlSecCon 2020 speakers will be selected in December. Submissions for the second, and final, round of speakers will be accepted until February 28th with the full list of keynotes and sessions announced March 1st. Delaying the second round of speakers allows us to showcase the latest attacks, tools and research in the market available to Canada’s top IT professionals.

 

VENUE

The new Halifax Convention Centre is located in the heart of downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. Being downtown enables sponsors to spend time with their current and prospective clients, without being bound to our choice of venue. Our decision to use a convention centre, rather than a hotel, reflects our mission to provide the best experience possible for both sponsors and attendees.

 

Halifax is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia, and the largest city east of Montreal. We’re proud to be in a city that’s big enough to have all of the conveniences you expect, while delivering the hospitality that the East Coast is famous for!

 

SPONSORSHIP

Now for what you’ve all been waiting for: A chance to sponsor The 10th annual Atlantic Security Conference!

 

Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsorships will be included in AtlSecCon’s “vendor passport”. To be entered in the grand prize draw, attendees have to complete their vendor passport by visiting vendor tables.
