I, too, see a lot of value in sponsorship of decentralized. While I believe that 200k is a lot of money, people need to realize that the blockchain space
has left "hobby state" and moves towards corporate. Either we move with it, or we stay behind.

Given that the reserves has some $50m+ to fund growth, I would like to see this conference sponsored. In order to get the funds back in $-terms, all that's needed
is the price of BTS to grow by $0.00025. That's tiny, IMHO.

To add to this, I would also like to approve a proper marketing worker proposal, but so far, we don't have that many that want to actually **DO** it.

Quick update:

I am currently in discussions with the University of Nicosia to potentially accept BTS / bitAssets as tuition fee payment for their courses if we partner up join the IFF.

Can you please create again post on what are all the benefits (by points) for these 200,000.00 USD potential worker ? (What does include, because its not just Decentralized event anymore)

Sure! I was planning on doing so anyway.

So here's the situation so far.

We have been offered the following:

  • Becoming event partners
  • Decentralized Conference listed and marketed everywhere as  POWERED BY UNIC AND BitShares. This includes all their own paid marketing campaigns. Next push starts on July 10th
  • BitShares logo on name badges and lanyards
  • BitShares video as screensaver on all stages between sessions
  • Paid production of a sponsor-dedicated event-video after the event
  • Private BitShares named meeting room at the conference
  • Video presentation/ad to be played during coffee break
  • Partner mention/thank you during opening/closing of conference
  • Double booth in best location in Exhibition Hall
  • 1 x Plenary/Keynote speaker
  • 4 x Session speakers
  • 1 x BitShares organized panel-session (3 panelists + 1 moderator)
  • 25 x free conference registrations (normal price for the full conference is in the ~$500 range)
  • 50% off for additional registrations/BitShares members
  • 50% off for additional booths for BitShares partners (5k instead of 10k)
  • 3-night accomodation at the conference hotel for 2 people
  • Full page ad in the conference brochure
  • Inclusion of BitShares branded item/gift in the conference gift bag
  • 1-year's membership in the IFF (more details here: https://www.unic.ac.cy/iff/ + https://github.com/clockworkgr/worker-proposals/blob/master/20190313%20-%20IFF%20Presentation.pdf)
  • Ability to pay University of Nicosia courses tuition fees in BTS/bitUSD/bitEUR

My suggestion is to make a "big" coordinated appearance as a "BitShares and Business" theme as follows.

Plenary speech is BitShares platform content
4 x session speakers are given to 4 BitShares based businesses across industries. My choices are OpenLedger (exchange/gateway), BitSpark (remittance), Everprove (blockchain notary/document archiving) and the 4th spot given to a China based business. I plan to discuss the best choice with Jerry (bitcrab), Jademont and other members of the chinese community.
1 x panel session to be determined. Could be other members of the wider BitShares community, just a panel subject moderated by us with non-BitShares panelists or a combination of both.

Each of the four BitShares businesses will get flights/accomodation paid for 2 people to attend.

The double booth will be branded partly with the four bitshares-based business logos and made available for their own promotion.

The full-page ad will be used in a similar way.

The coffee-break ad will be dedicated to those four businesses.

The above partner package is at 100k EUR + VAT. (113k USD + VAT)

Gift bag item is 2000 pieces x whatever we choose. I say budget ~ 4$ each so 8k USD

Creation of promotional material (advert, video, coffee-break ad etc.) will probably run up to 7k USD

Judging by last year's worker, 2k USD per person for flights/accommodation is a good ball park figure. so 2*24 (I already live there so no need for expenses for me) = 48k USD

The above adds to a total of just under 200k max budget (obviously like last year, everything will be done to get the best deals possible).

The organizers have asked for a 20% down payment of the sponsorship cost (so 22.6k USD) to confirm, ideally prior to their campaign phase launch date of July the 10th.

I suggest a 40k BTS / day worker (roughly 2.5k USD /day at current price) with a length of 18 weeks. This will provide enough funds for the down payment prior to July 10th (assuming it starts getting funded in the next few days) and enough funds for the entire package overall with leeway to account for BTS volatility. All excess funds will be burned back to the chain like last year.

Thanks for your attention.

Forgot to mention that the bitshares-based business guests, me + a few more people  ( e.g. Ryan, Stefan, etc.) probably add up to 15 people. So there's like 10 guest positions (with expenses paid) to fill.

I was thinking of extending those invites to some worker representatives (ie. someone from DEXbot, Milos from bitshares.org/MOVE) or "regional" representatives (e.g. Petr/Xanoxt for the russian community) who can help us provide a much more rounded informational background.

I have looked into the introduction of this meeting, it seems pretty good, therefore I would like to see the presence of BitShares on this conference.

As for the budget, it's up to voters. Maybe you can create three proposals, and see which one get the highest votes in the end.

We need more activities and media exposures for BitShares.

Create just one proposal and push it, I don't see reason for delays. I suggest you start it fast if you wanna make that down-payment, and if you wanna get votes.

Many thanks for detailed specifics of the project/worker and payments Alex.
