What is PodCamp Ohio?

PodCamp Ohio (www.podcampohio.com) is a FREE new media un-conference dedicated to podcasting, blogging, Twitter, audio and video production, photography, web design and other new/social media technologies that reach an interactive, engaged online audience. The event will give attendees the opportunity to learn from and network with fellow podcasters and bloggers in the space. The focus is on learning and networking, with experts from around the world speaking side-by-side with local bloggers and podcasters, together making Columbus and Ohio a center for tourism and technology.

The event will be held from 9 AM – 5 PM at The Ohio State University (Mendenhall Laboratory, 125 South Oval Drive, Columbus, OH 43210) on Saturday, June 20, 2009.

Benefits of Sponsoring PodCamp Ohio

  • PodCamp is a unique marketing opportunity to get your product or service in front of the people who matter, to get exposure worth 2-3 times what you will pay, and to have an opportunity to engage your brand in the social web sphere.
  • PodCamp attendees are media makers. We tell stories, share knowledge, and with the focus of our conference being about blogging, podcasting and social media, it immediately becomes a powerful tourism resource.
  • You will be receiving weeks of almost daily incidental brand exposure, including Twitter messages, Flickr photos, blog posts, audio and video podcasts across a variety of web sites.
  • During the conference, we plan to record and, where available, live stream to potentially thousands around the world, so the actual attendance and impressions will be far more than the 250-300 we are estimating on-site. This recorded audio and/or video will be available for repeat play on numerous web sites after the event.

Sponsorship levels

We happily accept any coupons, samples, etc. you may wish to distribute to the attendees to enrich your sponsorship. We will be using Twitter, blogging and podcasting to recognize your company and
web site from now through the event. We can custom-fit a package for you too!
