2018 Summit Masthead Image

The 2018 OCP Summit will be held March 20 – 21 at the San Jose Convention Center. The annual Summit gathers more than 3,000 key decision makers, executives, engineers, developers and suppliers. Together, they help grow, drive and support the open hardware ecosystem in, near and around the data center and beyond.

The OCP Summit features a unique combination of speakers, company announcements, demonstrations, booths and networking opportunities. It’s also your opportunity to work with the OCP community to progress the future of important projects.

Sponsoring the OCP Summit is an amazing opportunity to get your organization in front of the OCP Community. But whatever level you decide, time is of the essence as we already have a lot of interest from potential sponsors, and most, if not all opportunities are expected to sell out.

  • Consider your OCP Tiered Membership Level, because Silver, Gold, and Platinum members are given a discount on qualifying sponsorship levels.
  • Sponsorships are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, determined by when you return the signed sponsor form to us. We experienced higher demand for sponsorships this year, and most sold out, so renew early to make sure you reserve the level you want.
  • Booth assignments are also on a first-come, first-served basis, determined by when you return the signed sponsor form to us. We will begin assigning booth spaces in May.
  • Sponsor Booth selection begins Wednesday, November 29

In addition to the various sponsorship levels, OCP has secured 30 private meeting rooms at the San Jose Convention Center, and the adjoining Marriott Hotel, based on requests from attendee companies seeking more private spaces to conduct business meetings.
