vBeersPlus events adds sponsorships - recruitment, community, commercial

These informal networking/social events provide a relaxed environment to meet with other hands-on IT professionals and promote the growth of IT in South Florida.

I would like to invite local firms who are seeking new IT employees to sponsor a table which they will staff before or as part of the vBeersPlus.

These tables will be set up before the vBeersPlus. Job fair attendees and the hiring firms' representatives are encouraged to stay for the networking and talks.

In advance of the vBeersPlus, I will post a list of the positions that are available from the table sponsors.

I am now looking for sponsors to deliver short commercial talks during vBeersPlus. The idea is to describe an IT problem such that people will relate to it then briefly describe the sponsor's solution. Attendees will be able to visit the sponsor's table, after the presentations, to discuss the presented solution.

As I ramp up the sponsorships, the food and drinks will be covered by the sponsors.

Hosted by John J. McLaughlin
