Who: Gadgetoff is an invitation only
participatory event. Space is limited and the
invitation is only intended for the person who received
it. If you
cannot attend and wish to send someone else in your
place please contact us so we can discuss the change. We
also need to know in advance if you would like to bring
support people or guests.
Price: Gadgetoff is a
difficult event to create, all the people who come
contribute in some way - some folks exhibit things, some
make presentations, some give to the goody bag and
others volunteer their time. Larger exhibits take quite
a bit of effort to transport and set up. We try hard to
keep expenses down but food, venues, transportation,
equipment and insurance still cost money. We also do not
run this for profit but for the love of the community we
support. With that in mind we have set the cost of
Gadgetoff this year at $650. We hope people
who can contribute more will do so and folks who cannot
afford the price will contact us so we can arrange
scholarship (no embarrassment).
Even with the current entry price we still need sponsors
in order to break even and to provide a good experience.
Our participants are the folks who will make and change
the future. Sponsorship is a unique opportunity to reach
some of the world's most innovative people,
billionaires, inventors, scientists, captains of
Goody Bags: Our goody bags
have become legendary - their value has exceeded our
requested donations! If you have 300 of something
amazing to add please let us know.

sponsorship or the goody bags, please contact-
