NAME:2019-06-decentralized-sponsorship
WORKER HANDLER:Alex Megalokonomos (clockwork)
TOTAL:Up to $200,000 (Estimated Budget. See full proposal)
DURATION:2019/06/25 - 2019/10/25 (4 months)
DAILY PAY:45,000 BTS (includes overhead to cover potential BTS price volatility – ALL excess funds will be returned to the reserve pool)
WORKER ID:1.14.206

This year’s “Decentralized” conference will be held at my hometown of Athens, Greece between the 30th of October and 1st of November 2019. As some of you may remember, I set up a similar worker last year for a plain sponsorship of the conference by BitShares which went really well. Conference last year was attended by me, Ryan R. Fox, Michael Taggart and spokesperson Annemieke Dirkes and we had 2 session talks and a booth that gathered a lot of interest from attendees.

This year we got a very nice offer from the organizers to present the conference as partners (i.e. Decentralized 2019 by University of Nicosia and BitShares). This offer includes:

•   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

Great work and nice efforts. BitShares should be present at least on 10-15 such big conferences globally each year...

great initiative, as usual. The package seems slightly expensive but the offer is surprisingly extensive, too!

I guess the worker could exclude the travel/accommodation expenses for ALL 25 slots and end up quite cheaper.

However I believe that if you're gonna partner up and present such a huge event , you need to have the team to go with it. Worker covering expenses makes it easier to get a proper team covering all business/community aspects there to network/answer questions/showcase their work, etc.

This conference's academic track could be an interesting place to send an initial paper for my university research project if it ends up being funded. The submission deadline is July 15th, which is very tight -- but probably possible.

If it all works out and BitShares does sponsor the conference, having BitShares-funded academic research presented there as well could look quite good!

Thoughts?

That is awesome! I'll get on it and see if we can get some flexibility on submission dates :) This would also mean I've got one more slot on the attendance list filled for you to attend/present :)

Would be awesome to add some academic publications here.

Nope. We'll just have to provide speech/attendee details, marketing material/logos etc. I'll handle the bitshares-branded gifts for the gift bag and production of marketing material.

Spoke to the organizers. Deadline is planned to be extended to end of July / mid-August.

They also clarified the following:
"Just to be clear Alex , the academic papers go in front of a team of academics, if they believe the paper is suitable they will have a chance to speak on the academic track also, however all the papers submitted will go to the research team and they will decide which papers will get selected, the papers will also be published in a publication ( yet to be decided )"

Thanks! Do you agree xanoxt would be a good addition to the attending team as a Russian community rep? I know he had your support in that role as a committee member. Any other suggestions?

First of all, thanks to everyone who is supporting this worker.

After further research and examining options, the worker account is being handed over to the BBF for escrow, bureaucratical and financial reasons. If the organisers invoice the BBF directly, the invoice will be VAT exempt, saving us approx. 23k USD in the process despite the additional 5% escrow fee.

Further details will be made available soon.

The worker funding is moving along nicely however and the down-payment for the partnership will be made in the next few days.

Announcements imminent!
