2016 Global Sponsorship outreach progress report

Last week we finalized our 2016 Global Community Sponsorship program, yay! Working with @kcristiano, I emailed details about the program to past and some prospective sponsors who had already expressed interest.

Here’s a list of those companies; unless noted otherwise, all of them are reviewing the program details and will get back to me when they’ve made their decisions. 🙂

2015 global sponsors have all been contacted:
Jetpack
GoDaddy
Bluehost – confirmed as Gold level for Western and Silver level for Eastern region for 2016
Dreamhost
WPML – confirmed as Bronze level for Western and Eastern regions for 2016
WiredTree – not yet confirmed; mentioned wanting to reduce their sponsorship level in 2016
Planethoster – not interested in global sponsorship for 2016

Companies that had expressed interest in the program previously have also been contacted:
Pantheon – confirmed as Silver level for Western region for 2016
GMO Internet Group
Odin/Plesk
LiquidWeb
VertaMedia
CloudFlare
CrowdFavorite
SiteGround
Tucows
WooThemes

In January, we’ll email every company that sponsored a WordCamp in 2015 to thank them for their support and let them know about the global sponsorship program as well.
