Why should you sponsor Aginext 2020?

Aginext is a wholly unique conference created for advanced agilists. It’s the only European conference with two days dedicated to an advanced agile audience looking to answer two questions:

  • What’s next after agile?
  • What can we do to take our digital transformation to the next level?

Aginext is an intimate event with broad reach. We boast an excellent speaker-to-attendee ratio and a strong community feel, matched with the most forward-thinking agilists from the most innovative companies.

Aginext has a unique audience. We aren’t your normal generalist agile conference. Everyone that attends Aginext should have been experimenting with agile for over three years. It’s a great place to meet experienced hiring prospects and potential customers. And to interact with forward-thinking organisations that are already working with DevOps, CI/CD and the most modern and experimental processes that processes that put people and automation first. 

Aginext is a London agile event with an unparalleled programme. We bring together topics and speakers that simply aren’t talked about at the same conference, but are the experiments and answers modern, agile organisations are looking to learn from.

Group Tickets

Aginext is the type of intimate conference that’s perfect for both individuals and teams to attend. We see teams of up to 15 people — a mix of scrums and cross-functional, cross-organisational teams — join us for two days. That’s why we are offering a 15% off discount to groups of six or more people. Bonus, you also get first booking in our coaching clinic and can book a full hour of private coaching for your team.

Diversity Ticket Sponsorship

We want to make this conference as welcoming, accessible, diverse and inclusive as possible.

If agile is the future of work, then we should be working to be an example for the industry. We don’t just want to be representative of the industry — we want to do better. 

We are proud to say that this year’s programme features gender parity.

But, like our industry, we have a long way to go to make sure our audience embraces gender and many other forms of diversity and inclusion. With this in mind we are also offering opportunities for Diversity Ticket Sponsorship. This starts with buying a pair of discounted tickets — we don’t want anyone to feel isolated — for us to give to people identifying as under-represented in the London agile scene. We will give you an extra 15% off any tickets purchased if they are part of a Diversity Ticket scholarship. 

In return, we will give you prominent recognition as a D&I supporter during the conference and on our website and marketing. Sponsors are also encouraged to give your Diversity Tickets away in your own community.

The Aginext Community, the organisation behind this conference, will of course act as the first diversity sponsors. In addition, each speaker and facilitator is given a 50% off code and encouraged to use it to invite someone who otherwise couldn’t attend.

Like all things agile, our striving for an inclusive conference is still an experiment. Any feedback on our diversity efforts is very welcome.

Environmental Sponsorship

This is a necessary experiment in 2020. As a conference and a community, Aginext is striving to be greener. Aginext 2020 will be the first of our conferences where we attempt to measure our carbon impact — after all, measuring and observation is the first step in continuous improvement. And we continue to commit to being a no-waste conference and encourage our venue to do the same. Our environmental sponsor will cover the cost of carbon offsetting for travel to our conference.
