Dear BitShares community,
This worker proposal requests a relatively small sponsorship for the annual SteemFest, this year in it’s 4th edition, heading to Asia! To be held in various locations across Bangkok, Thailand from 6 to 10 november 2019. The goal of this worker is to promote the Bitshares chain and ecosystem during this Graphene oriented community event.
SteemFest is the annual get together focussed on bringing steem users together in real life to learn from eachother and have a good time. Both conference days are filled with presentations, workshops and panels for steem users, by steem users. At nights some social events are happening and in the weekend attendees have ample time to explore the city, tourist wise :P - Steem has become the defacto standard blogging tool for (graphene based) blockchain announcements and for example witness announcements of all sorts. Many Steem users know of BitShares and use it, but there is still work to be done. Did you know that just like last year, this year you can also buy your SteemFest ticket with BTS?
SteemFest’s conference program is still in the works. Previous 3 years over 1000 people attended the event from 60+ countries.
SteemFest is heading to Asia for the first time since it’s inception:
See https://steemfest.com for more info.
SteemFest is organised by @roelandp with help from a group of enthusiast supporters during the event days. My experience in events is imho considerable: being co-organiser of TodaysArt.org for 5 years (3 years fulltime, 2 years parttime) and 2 Music Hackathon Amsterdam events and 3 Liberty Global ‘Appathons’ (and ofcourse organising SteemFest 1,2,3) gives me quite the experience in organising these events.
A sponsorship by Bitshares on SteemFest will give a lot of shine to Bitshares, as the core principle for Steemfest is to be as accessible as possible by having a low entry level ticket price for plankton/minnow users and then gradually building up prices for those who can afford more. Thanks to the sponsorships, tickets for plankton & minnow users are priced well under the actual cost price.
Bitshares will literally be profiled as a very kind philanthropist making the event possible to attend for those not so wealthy. It is a great way to demonstrate the power of this blockchain.
This sponsorship through a worker would give BitShares:
2 x full (5 day) conference tickets for official BitShares delegates. To be used for 1-2 speakers attending SteemFest on behalf of the BitShares Blockchain.
BitShares Speaking Slot: option to do a Bitshares related presentation on stage provided a speaker volunteer wants to do this.
BitShares branded insert in the goodiebag for all attendees - brochure, sticker or both.
This sponsorship costs 10,000 EURO (bitCNY 80,000). Left-over BTS will be refunded.
The sponsorship money will be used to cover the generic event budget and therefor helps lower the ticket price for those not so wealthy. Like previous years, we aim to have the lowest ticketprice for SteemFest at 50% of the actual cost price per attendee. This is only possible thanks to sponsorships. A Bitshares sponsorship enables about 35-50 additional of these lowest priced tickets.
