First sponsors of VB2017 announced

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Mar 6, 2017

We are proud of the fact that the Virus Bulletin Conference is one of the industry's most international security conferences, with speakers and attendees coming together from all over the world to discuss the latest security threats, as well as what can be done to mitigate them.

The international element also generally holds true for the conference sponsors, and thus we are excited to announce the first five sponsors for VB2017 – companies based in Europe, Asia and North America.

ESET and Tencent have both pledged their support for the 27th Virus Bulletin conference at Platinum level, while PC Matic is our first Gold-level sponsor, and OPSWAT and Qihoo 360 are Silver-level sponsors. We're delighted to have all of them on board and very much look forward to working with them.

 

ESET - Platinum sponsor VB2017

Tencent - Platinum sponsor VB2017

PC Matic - Gold sponsor VB2017

OPSWAT - Silver sponsor VB2017

Qihoo 360 - Silver sponsor VB2017

 

Sponsoring the Virus Bulletin Conference is an excellent way to increase your company's visibility to the industry's top researchers and security experts, and to get even more out of attending the conference. We still have some sponsorship opportunities available; please contact Allison Sketchley (allison.sketchley@virusbulletin.com) for more details.

VB2017 will take place in Madrid, Spain, 4-6 October 2017. The call for papers is open until 19 March. The programme will be announced in April, when registration for the event will also open.
