Sponsoring BarCamp Melbourne
BarCamp Melbourne takes place in just 10 days. Creative Contingencies has thrown some coins in the hat to sponsor the event and help ensure it's free for attendees. Would-be BarCampers do have to pay $10 up front to secure their place, as spots are limited. Too often, people sign up, but don't show up. A small financial commitment seems to work to reduce the number of no-shows. If attendees do turn up, they get a refund, or the option to donate their fee to a carbon offset scheme.
