Sponsorship

Sponsor a Chapter Meeting

DOUG chapter meetings are well attended by our members.  In addition to networking opportunities, local Oracle professionals are attracted to DOUG by the diverse agenda and guest presenters.

The DOUG technical forums provide members a valuable opportunity to connect and interact with other professionals while learning about the latest in practices and products.

The forums include:

  1. E-Business Suite
  2. Business Intelligence/EPM
  3. Fusion Middleware
  4. Professional Development
  5. MySQL Database
  6. Oracle Database

 


One Time Regular Meeting Sponsor

One time sponsors are typically Account Managers or Marketing Managers who wish to sponsor a single DOUG meeting. Your logo will be included on the meeting calendar for your event and company URL included in email and LinkedIn communication. Please provide a JPEG file of your logo to your DOUG contact.  Cost is $300.

Benefits

  • Exclusive opportunity to distribute marketing materials at the meeting
  • Placement of vendor table at sponsored meetings, providing an opportunity to meet and greet DOUG members
