Sponsorship

Sponsoring a RIPE Meeting is a great way to increase the visibility of your organisation among the global Internet community. Your brand will be associated with a long-standing, professionally organised event that is well regarded by the engineers, top-level IT managers and government representatives who attend.

There are a number of sponsorship options available and our RIPE NCC Meeting Coordinator will work with you to ensure that the sponsorship option you choose is tailored to your specific needs. There is plenty of room for creative ideas – so long as they will help make this the best RIPE Meeting yet!

Past social events have included boat tours, cocktail parties, receptions in historical venues and formal dinners. Some of the more lively events form the basis of stories and legends that last far beyond the end of the RIPE Meeting!
