We'd like to exhibit...

To acquire a booth for a project, you have to visit Call for Projects page and register your project.

Companies have the possibility to choose one of our sponsor packages that includes 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(at)froscon.de.

We'd like to support the event. How?

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

Can I help?

Of course! Without volunteers FrOSCon cannot exist. 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 located on the ground floor and the building is generally suitable for wheelchair users.

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.
