ECon logo We have three levels of sponsorships for EclipseCon 2013 and ALM Connect. The co-location offer excellent opportunities for our members to promote their commercial offerings to both the Eclipse and Agile communities. Contact us now because display locations are first-come, first-served and some options will sell out.
EclipseCon and ALM Connect are March 25-28 in Boston, Massachusetts. Advance registration is in effect until February 14, so sign up soon!
