We'd like to exhibit...

To acquire a booth for a project, you have to participate at the Call for Projects. The call for projects has not yet started for 2016.

Companies have the possibility to choose one of our sponsor packages which include a booth. Of course, we will also compose an individual sponsoring package for you if you "only" want to represent your company with a booth. In both cases please contact sponsoren@froscon.de.

We'd like to support the event. How?

Next to individuall sponsoring agreements we also offer different sponsoring packages. Please send an email at sponsoren(at)froscon.org to discuss further details. Our sponsoring team will contact you as fast as possible. For smaller contributions we recommand to buy a business ticket.

Can I help?

Of course! Without volunteers FrOSCon cannot be done. All information about volunteering can be found here.

I'd like to write about FrOSCon? Whom should I contact to get more information?

Please send an email to: presse(at)froscon.de.

I need a wheelchair, can I come to FrOSCon?

All lecture halls are situated on the ground floor, the building is generally prepared for people with wheel chairs.

Do you have a code of conduct?

The atmosphere at FrOSCon is relaxed and very friendly. But for first time visitors we wrote down a short code of conduct.
