FIRST Conferences Sponsorship Opportunities

FIRST has an excellent track record of organizing well attended conferences. Our annual conference attracts computer and network security professionals from industry and commercial organizations as well as the research and academic environments. The combined international constituency served by the FIRST member teams alone is enormous, reaching into the millions. The conference schedule is normally just over five days in length. The conference usually begins with a welcome (or ice-breaker) reception on the Sunday evening, tutorials on the Monday, a conference dinner on Wednesday and the main conference sessions Tuesday through Friday. Past conferences have attracted more than 300 attendees from more than 90 teams and 29 countries. Interest in our conference continues to grow and we expect between 300-400 attendees in Hawaii. We have limited sponsorship opportunities available and it is first-come, first-served1, so please act quickly!
