BarCamp Penang is pleased to extend an invitation to you to be one of our partner-sponsors for our 1st ever BarCamp Penang conference that will take place on the 6th and 7th of June 2009, from 10 a.m. to 6.00 p.m..

We would like to invite you to be the Official Main Supporting Partner for our event.

BarCamp is a conference, but also know as an unconference due to its flexibility and freedom in sharing knowledge, ideas, skills and strategies ranging from business to dance classes. BarCamp is unique due to its style of having conferences in many rooms at the same time. Each room will run their respective sessions, giving the opportunity for the audience to choose which topic interests them most.

More info on Barcamp Malaysia, kindly go to

We have already successfully organized 4 barcamps in Malaysia to-date, namely 3 in Kuala Lumpur and 1 in Johor Bahru, Johor. The response
for each barcamp has been overwhelming as it drew crowds from all over Malaysia and the SEA region including a few other foreigners from Europe and Australia.
Since the last barcamp in KL, we have successfully attracted over 500 participants with the power of social media and to anticipate that demand, we truly hope with your help, we can make it possible with a much bigger venue in this coming event. We are currently anticipating over 600 participants this time around in barcamp.

The presenter is given a time limit of 1 hour to share what he or she wishes to share to the audience. After an hour, the presenter has to give the opportunity to other presenters to share their knowledge with the audience. Plus, entry fees are free. Food (breakfast and lunch) will also be provided and limited edition BarCamp Penang t-shirts will also be given to the early birds.

Kindly refer the schedule at  
(P/S : currently the webpage still work in progress, you might not see the updates yet)

Do provide the followings:

- Title of your speech,
- Short Description of your speech
- Day & Time

BarCamps all around Malaysia have been sustained by generous donors. Hence, due to their contributions towards our knowledge sharing conference, we, BarCamp Penang have decided to bring BarCamp to Penang, in appreciation to the community for their generous support (*Note*: We are still trying to build up enough money for the t-shirt, but if we do not have enough money to make the t-shirt, we might have to pull it out. Instead, the money will then be invested in getting food for the attendees)

At this moment, we are also approaching other generous organizations to sponsor for our event. All we are asking in terms of sponsorship from you is to provide us with some financial aid for the production of t-shirts, banner, food and other required things. Should this not be possible, we are open to other kinds of sponsorships as well.
