[AusNOG] Promotional material at AusNOG Events.

Hi David,

At 500-600 dollars a ticket, I’d like you to respect the financial commitment I’ve made to gathering as much merch from my industry peers as I’d like.

This has historically always taken place and given the small community nature of NOG, something many of us look forward to as part of the experience, we like swapping our merch with our friends. It saves postage.

I would say this not only misses the mark but is a continued slap of the face to all those that pay good money to attend the event in hopes to meet with their industry peers but more importantly friends.

How about NOG focus on meaningful things like streaming the event for those who can’t attend, or providing a continued framework to making the event a safer place for all?


Kind Regards,

Afternoon all,

We've been contacted by one of the sponsors of our conference in April about companies who aren't sponsors handing out promotional material, in particular branded t-shirts etc.  While everyone likes getting a bag full of free merch, we ask that attendees respect the financial commitment that our sponsors make towards funding the conference.  They cover almost half the cost and in return they get the right to promote themselves to all of you who attend.

If you are not a sponsor please do not distribute swag to delegates at the conference.


David, on behalf of the Board
